Tilt lens adapter for MicroFourThirds!

The MicroFourThirds Tilt Lens Adapter

Thomas K. sent us an interesting link! He found an italian website which makes and sells Tilt lens adapter for MicroFourThirds. The Adapter costs 145 Euro and it comes in Nikon, Pentax, Contax-Yashica (manual focus), Vite 42×1, Leica R, Contarex and Olympus OM Mount! They also ship outside Italy for 10 Euro (or 20 Euro with insurance).

A small and true story about New Years Eve! :)

Happy New Year to everyone!

I had a very nice night with friends in the montains. I would like to tell you a small story. At about 4 o’clock in the morning a friend of a friend of mine approached me and he started to talk about cameras. He doesn’t know that I am the 43rumors owner :)

Friend: “You know what, I want to buy a new camera, a !”
Me: “Oh yeah, it is a nice camera!”
Friend: “I read the wonderful review from a guy who went to the Himalaya for 17 days (Craig Mod)… I love the camera!”
Me: “Wow! I also read it! And how did you find his website?”
Friend: “I always read 43rumors. Do you know the website?”

Happy New Year!

Right now I am on the top of a montain in the middle of the alps. It is snowing. A perfect atmosphere to enter the 2010!
Wish you good luck!
