Great timing too - I like how you got the ball just before the batter. This looks like something I'd like to try eventually, neat "effect" lens you wouldn't use every day but neat to have. Thanks for sharing.

About tiltable optics in general...

Would this be applicable for increasing the DoF in macro shooting, if you found a macro-capable lens with enough working distance (since the bellows require some extra space)? And if the answer is yes, how much deeper could the DoF be at maximum tilt, at a certain aperture? 2x, 4x, a bit more, or even infinite? Or would it still depend on the focal length, focus distance, and chosen aperture?

You wouldn't have to find a dedicated macro lens as the bellow adds plenty of space between the lens and the sensor/film (think of how extension tubes allow close focusing).

As far as "deeper" aperture, that has more to do with aperture and the like. Tilting wont increase the depth it just changes the plane on which it focuses.

Yes, I just realized that after reading the following link: <Tilt-shift lenses> (external link)

The picture(s) of two lenses on a rug illustrates it.
