I just discovered a new (since the last time I searched) Canon page on Tilt and Shift lenses. It's worth looking at, goes over setting tilt on page 6:
http://www.learn.usa.c​anon.com …hift_lenses_art​icle.shtml (external link)

To learn how to adjust tilt, go to page 6 in the following link.
http://www.learn.usa.c​anon.com …hift_lenses_art​icle.shtml (external link)

Check out the first graphic, move your cursor over the "Appy Lens Tilt" degrees on the right.

The following links are excellent

A very important point to using tilt or shift with a camera using TTL metering is to set the exposure per the TTL meter with the lens in the UNshift and UNtilted position, then do the tilt/shift moves, then shoot.

Thanks ... I just bought a FD TS35F2.8 and waiting for the conversion to EF mount.
My first tests mounted on a NEX5 were more or less difficult, so your thread should help me a lot.

More references for you:
Here is the largest compilation of TS references, with an emphasis on tilt. its a few years dated.

http://hame.ca/tiltshi​ft.htm (external link)

The clearest explanation of adjusting tilt and focus (during tilt) is here:
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorial​s/focusing-ts.shtml (external link)

What he is saying is that for a wide angle TS lens at standing height, the amount of tilt is very little (assuming ground plane is focusing plane). You can simply dial in the degree of tilt using the tilt table, focus and shoot. For TSE 224 standing its ~1 degree for kneeling its ~1.5 degrees. Fine adjustments may not be too critical. The lower you get the camera to the focal plane the more critical the tilt angle becomes and it will interact with the focus, so it becomes and iterative fine adjustment process. Even in these situations I dial in the tilt angle the table tells me as a starting place. For those of you learning, practice in your driveway or hallway. Its not so easy.

I carry this table with me.
