I find it difficult to visualize the effect that different angles of tilt will have on the plane of focus with the Canon TS-E lenses.

So I have put together this visual guide to help me. It is not critically accurate, but is not far off. It is amazing to see how much the plane of focus changes with even moderate tilt angles.

Feel free to print it off for personal use if you wish.....

Ooh, interesting.

May I print it out for non-personal use too? We stock the TSE-24 at LensesForHire, and this would be a useful thing to include in the documentation we supply to all customers.

I do believe that people in the UK use the term "knocked up" differently than Americans.

It can have the same meaning (and also mean got pregnant), the context makes it clear which meaning it has ;)

Thanks for that...it's strikingly obvious when you see it represented this way but not so easy to visualise when composing.

As you well know young man (:p) I am no longer anything to do with the BFTO committee etc. It has gone downhill since I stopped doing the results etc.

Do not talk to me about packing. 30 years worth of junk is certainly fraying the nerves:mad:

The total shift from full drop to full shift on the 24mm is just under a frame in horizontal format..... Plenty enough. Just think how much higher you would have raise the camera without pointing it up to move the image that much.:cool:
