<<<Are you saying the back end fits an OM film camera?


Exactly!!!!!  The Mirex tilt-shift for OM is a "One Of", I am told. 




<<<But you're severely constrained in x-pol work, because the twin lights must 
be 
<<<oriented so they have the same polarization.

<<<With the 38 (and 20), I imagine you'd have to tape a bit of polarizing 
material 
<<<(in the proper orientation) to the front of the lens. You should be able to 
do 
<<<that without messing up the lens, as the front element is recessed.

Please elaborate how to configure that.  I  vaguely remember Dean's rig. 
The 49mm filter threads are set waaaaay back from the Front ele on the 38/2.8 
macro but perhaps a 32mm pol will slip on?  I don't remember trying that but 
alan wood site suggests that might work???.

It is nice to be able to tune the specular highlights rather than all or none. 

Trying to uncross signals on Xpol technique, Mike
