Scuff, do you focus near and tilt until far comes in or do you focus at hyperfocal and tilt until both near and far come in to sharper focus? There seems to be 2 methods when I read up on it

It does vary, for instance with the boat shots, I set the tilt with an educated guess from experience, knowing that F10 on 24mm would give me enough. As I was actually sinking in the shifting sand under the water, I didn't reall have time to faff about. :lol:

When using it with a tripod for more considered shots, I tilt to approximately the right degree for the height and then fine tune it in the viewfinder, often using outer focus points as they are quick to swap about.

Thanks Scud. I am about 6'2" tall, and when hand holding the camera, I need about 1.5 degrees of downward tilt to get my toes to infinity in the plane of focus. The last shot was taken about 1.5 feet off of the ground and the tilt angle was calculated at 3 degrees for an aperture of f10. Therefore everything from the chain to infinity fell within the plane of focus. I hope that helps.

Thanks Scuff- that really helps to give me a frame of reference to work from.

XPFloyd, Doc, and Nat - really nice work from you guys also - this seems to be a terrific place to get some inspiration and help from.

This is a single image at full vertical shift and I have issues with levels. horizons, vertials etc - so does this look square?

Looks square to me.

Photos of the Eureka Tower are always a bit deceptive, though, because the top of the tower actually *is* wider than the middle, so even a perfectly-square shot can look 'wrong'.

Thanks for that feedback - I now need to repeat the approach ...
