<<<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.

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
