NeinGrenze 5000T – Tilt-Shift Photography On The Cheap(er)

By Andrew Liszewski

Because it requires more than just turning on your DSLR’s exposure bracketing and combining the shots in Photoshop, tilt-shift photography hasn’t become as tired and overused as HDR photography has. (Ugh, awful.) They usually require a bit more skill and investment on the part of the photographer, including a tilt-shift lens like those offered by Lensbaby and Nikon. But now even amateur photographers with a limited budget can try their hand at faking miniature scenes with this NeinGrenze 5000T point and shoot.

As digital cameras go it’s pretty basic, with a 5MP sensor, 2.4-inch TFT LCD display, VGA video capabilities, an SD card slot, fixed focus and no zoom capabilities. But what will certainly have photographers trying to hunt down this basic $150 (MSRP) digicam is the fact that its built-in lens can be switched into a tilt-shift mode, and it even offers in-camera post-processing
effects to make your shots look like they’re from a Lomo. Because let’s face it, vacation photos are far more interesting if it looks like the person had some amazing Gulliver’s Travels-like adventure to Lilliput.

     is it really necessary? i mean, as at now, some mainstream point and shoot camera that offers amazing quality already has such function. i can’t deny it is cheap but then again, i rather have one camera then two. besides, i am having fun with Photoshop in transforming some photos into tilt-shift.
