1.0 out of 5 stars Tilt-Shift - oh no it isn't!, July 20, 2013
This review is from: Bonzart Ampel Twin Lens TLR Digital Camera (Electronics)
Many reviews of this camera have cheerfully reproduced the makers claim about a 'tilt-shift' lens. They obvious have no idea what tilt-shift means. The lens does not actually tilt or shift in any way. You would use a proper tilt lens to control the zone of focus and shift to correct vertical lines in an image. This camera fakes an effect that can be produced with tilt - a tight zone of focus with blurred foreground and background. But usually you would use a shift lens to do exactly the opposite - extend the zone of focus. It has no shift correction effect at all. None.
The effect it does produce is the same as the 'Miniature' effect found in the scene modes of many regular digital cameras - but with less control. A blur mask seems to be used on the lower lens to get the effect. So the claim that it is a 'tilt-shift' lens is utterly misleading (to the point of deliberate deception) and the reviewers who have accepted the claim have merely displayed their ignorance of basic photography.
