Default Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8

I was just looking on the lens sample images archive thread (that's a mouthful/fingerful!) and noticed the Canon 90mm TS-E wasn't on the list. I figured I'd start a thread with some samples of what I've done with it.



this is a 19.9mp image from 3 shifted shots stitched together:

Hi Ben,

Here are some of mine:







These are only downsized, with PSP if you want to know, cropped, except the first one, and tilted at most a tiny bit. Notice the highlights in number 1 - drop-dead gorgeous IMO. OK, all with standard settings on the 350D, jpeg only. These little experiments, with just about 300 clicks on the ticker, sold me on digital and dslr for good.

For the larger sizes:

http://vandebilt.net/images/pens/inverno04.jpg
http://vandebilt.net/images/pens/maj+ink01.jpg

Sorry, but the last one isn't as sharp as the other two, due to slight misfocus . Oh, and sorry for the dust and other particles: I never realized these would turn out this sharp. I only saw the dust and hairs once I downloaded the pics to the computer...

Kind regards, Wim

P.S.: quit freely copied from my post in the thread on the TS-E 90 and tcons...

I just cross posted mine over there from our discusion there about the TCs and weather I should keep my 45mm or get the 24mm and use it with the TCs...

I thought there was something fishy about that photo, cineraceus!

Very nice, indeed.

I was hoping this archive would be full of photos that only a TS could do...

I loved the chess set, and while the other landscapes are good (if over the forum size limits), I have to question how the TS aspect made them better, and how they are different from non-TS photos.

Easy, zero parallax error and a stitch that takes seconds. Sure you can get similar shots with a normal lens, but it's much, MUCH easier using the shift method with a TS-E. It's not everyone's solution, but it's the way I prefer to do it.

these days thats pretty rare. Pano programs make stitching "easy" with normal shots, even w/o a tripod.
Stacking programs make unlimited DOF possible, and blurring with PS makes limited DOF possible. You can also fix perspectives in PS pretty easy these days.

About the only original reason TS-E exist that still is valid in a PS/digital world is the ability to shoot a mirror w/o the camera's reflection in it. The rest can be done in PS, you just might not get the same quality, still pretty good though. The TS-Es (to me) are all about getting things done in camera instead of in photoshop.

Can someone explain, are Tilt and shift lenses like doing Panoramic shots?

Default Re: -= Archive =- Canon 90mm TS-E images.

when you shift, if gives you different images from the same perspective (if you rotate the camera the perspective changes even if it's in "the same place"). That gives you 2 or 3 shots that will line up almost perfectly (as in layers will work, but photomerge makes them perfect) when you go to make your pano. You won't need to do any warping of the images to get your pano, JUST lining them up.

Unfortunately I don't have any sample pics up anymore before stitching. I'm working on a tutorial though, eventually I'll get to it and post it.
