Yes...it's back in my bag. :) I sold the 11-24mm, which I will sorely miss, and bought a used one (looks brand new) on FM. I just decided the TS-E is too much a part of my vision for photography. This particular shot is a standard pano using my pano rotator (lens in portrait position shifted downward). This gives me the best of both worlds: shift control for perspective correction with an ultra-wide POV. Looking forward to more fun with it. :)

It's the only lens that I got rid of that I regret. I would love an update of the 45mm TS-E but may consider repurchasing the 24mm eventually if Canon don't release a II version of the 45mm. I still have my 90mm TS-E though and won't get rid of it!

Can't wait to see your new creations, David. There's something magical about TS-E lenses!

What does it do? Is it a nodal rail replacement?

It is used in conjunction with a nodal slide. Basically it just makes taking the frames quicker because it has a series of adjustable detents. When you rotate the camera it clicks into place every so many degrees (which you select on the rotator). While it adds bulk to my already bulky pano rig, I just like that it makes it so quick to take the frames that overlap by exactly the same amount. It is especially handy with multi-row panos as you never lose track of what you shot and the frames always line up perfectly - makes error-free stitching in Autopano.

You can view my pano rig with full parts list in description below here: https://www.flickr.com​/photos/camp_arbo/2384​9207259/ (external link) (the rotator is the thing with the blue knobs). The camera is mounted to a RRS nodal rail on a RRS gimbal.

Interesting. What's your opinion on the RRS gimbal btw? I'm thinking of saving up for the RRS fluid gimbal, but it sure is pricey. And also, how do you like the leveling base?

The real reason I orginally got the RRS gimbal was to support an EF 500mm f/4L IS - at the time using it for panos was more of an after-thought. I hadn't even thought about using the gimbal for video - I need to give that a try. Afraid I can't offer a good answer there. The leveling base is great. You could, of course, achieve the same thing by mounting the gimbal on the RRS BH55 ballhead, but that would be really top heavy and a pain to use. The leveling base works in a much more balanced way. Also I installed the dovetail plate on top of the leveling base so I can pop the gimbal or a bh on and off with ease.

Gotcha. No worries, I was asking more about using the gimbal as a still photography head in general; I think I'd spring for the fluid damping in the video model for that purpose. I think I'll have to kick the RRS 34L, leveling base and dovetail and the fluid gimbal up my "to-buy" list, but unfortunately, the 1DXII is competing for my cost opportunity wallet...question...wh​y use the BH55 if you already have the gimbal? Shouldn't the gimbal in theory be much more precise, like a geared head, especially for TS and architectural usage?

And pardon me for all the questions, but how do you like your RRS tripod compared to say Manfrotto? I'm debating between the Manfrotto 535 and a RRS 3-series...the cost difference is substantial, but I'd prefer to buy only once as Thom Hogan has advised in the past.

For photos the gimbal is fantastically smooth. To be candid I use a second, lighter Gitzo tripod primarily for the BH. The gimbal setup can sometimes be cumbersome to schlep around. But you are absolutely right: for TS lenses with architectural photography the gimbal and leveling base is wonderful - precise like a geared head but quicker to use.

Can't say enough good stuff about RRS tripods. Superb build quality. And they are huge/tall - the 34L would be great for a 7' tall guy.

I've got a new tripod and LOVING IT - the SIRUI T-025X so I've been out to test it and I'm enjoying finally having a sturdy travel tripod which rises above my waist. I'll be using more vertical shifts now that my head can cope so very happy indeed.

All at 24mm:
