Novoflex Tilt- and Shift Bellows System for CSCs
German accessories manufacturer Novoflex has introduced a newly designed tilt- and shift bellows system for compact system cameras. Comprising the Castbal-T/S bellows attachment (€299) and the Castel-Q macro focussing rack, the new system is claimed to offer “an easy and inexpensive way to dive even deeper into macro photography and perspectives control.” The bellows attachment is simply put into the quick release mount of the Castel-Q and is ready for use. For perspective control purposes the lens panel of the Castbal-T/S can be adjusted 25° to the left or right side. For focus control it can be shifted within the quick release mount of the focusing rack. (The amount of shift/rise/fall achievable with the system is unspecified.) The system is compatible with a wide variety of Novoflex adapters. Additionally, a Schneider Kreuznach UNI-APO-DIGI 90mm f/4.5 lens is offered as an optional accessory for €759.

Compact system cameras are very trendy. Novoflex pays tribute to photographers’ demand for customized, compact accessories by offering the new designed tilt- and shift bellows system CASTBAL-T/S.
CASTBAL-T/S is a full-fledged bellow attachment which in combination with the macro focusing rack CASTEL-Q becomes the world’s smallest tilt-/shift bellow. It offers an easy and inexpensive way to dive even deeper into macro photography and perspectives control. The bellows attachment is simply put into the quick release mount of the CASTEL-Q and is ready for use.
For perspective control purposes the lens panel of the CASTBAL-T/S can be adjusted 25° to the left or right side. For focus control it can be shifted within the quick release mount of the focusing rack. Precise adjustment tools, an attractive design and high-quality manufacturing are the completion of this perfect makro accessory.
The CASTBAL-T/S fits perfectly to the flexible Novoflex adapter system and can be used with a great variery of camera-/lens combinations.
A special accessory is offered with the new extremely-high precision lens head UNI-APO-DIGI 90 by Schneider Kreuznach. It is an apochromatic and digitally corrected 4,5/90 mm lens with fixed attachment to the tilt- and shift bellow system. In case of using full format cameras (KB) a focusing from infinite to 1.2x magnification is possible, which corresponds to an objective size of 31 mm. Cameras with a sensor in APS-C format can be focused from infinite to 1.8x magnification (object size 20.6 mm)
Both novelties are available from now on in specialised stores.
