Farmer, please forgive my ignorance, but in your two examples what did a t/s lens do for you that a standard lens would not have? I know the purpose for controlling dof/doing the "fake miniature" shots and for preventing keystoning in architecture shots.

Try getting that much DOF shooting that close at F8, that's what tilt gives you the ability to do. With the pool cues he has the plane of focus running along the length of the pool cues.


Would you like to buy a vowel?
Go ahead, spin the wheel.

Honestly I haven't tried (every) standard lens.
I haven't tried every TSE lens either, have you ?

I haven't flown in a rocket, but I know that you can't get to the moon without one.

Like you, I haven't shot with every TSE lens, but I know that you can't get the huge DoF effects of forward tilt with a 'standard' lens.

Rockets are not the only energy in the future of space travel and shortly they will be replaced if man kind doesn't destroy each other first.
With enough gun powder and long enough cannon barrel I think I could get few people to the moon.

Sorry, I really knew the answer to the question and didn't answer because I felt the question was loaded .

Its not possible to of used or own a TSE lens and not know that you can adjust the focal plane by tilting the lens up or down..
