Auto Bellows S: Shift/Tilt Bellows Prototype
The book The World of OM-Systems (Die Welt des OM-Systems) by Franz Pangerl, published by Olympus Germany (2nd edition 1977) contains a picture of a bellows with a tilt / shift mechanism for extended control of perspective and depth of field in macro photography, similar to an optical bench. This bellows was designed and prototyped but never put into production for unknown reasons. The picture (see below) shows it with a prototype of the 135mm/F4.5 lens, that probably would have been compatible with this bellows. Apparently this lens was originally designed with a smallest aperture of F22. The lens was finally produced with a smallest aperture of F45. The Auto Bellows S also appears in early Macrophoto Group Charts, such as the one displayed in the manual of the OM-1MD.
