Maybe you heard of "Tilt-shift photography" - it creates miniature effect in your photo. Wikipedia explains: It refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene.

While professional tilt-shift lens and adaptors cost around $1000- 3000, Instructable user JoeMurphy has provided a much cheaper solution. On instructables he shows step-by-step how to make your own 3D printed Tilt-Shift Lens Adapter. The DIY adapter is designed to fit a micro 4/3 Panasonic GF1 to Nikon e-series mount. All you need are a DSLR body, 35mm/Medium/Large format Lens. calipers, 3D printer and 3D modeling program.

JoeMurphy printed about 20 different adapter before he got things perfect - so be patient with your experiment. JoeMurphy has uploaded all files on thingaverse and 123D gallery so you can download and edit to 3D-print your own Tilt-Shift Lens Adapter.
