Evening all

Has any of you with the fancy dancy digital SLRs tried any shift or perspective control lenses? They make for some interesting photo-gymnastics. I'm sure you could find them for rent somewhere.

Extreme rises or shifts allow for strange viewpoints whilst keeping vertical lines as Nature intended.

I've got a bit of advantage with some of my lenses. My 210mm has a 300mm image circle so I can employ tremendous shifts.

Just another piece of pasta in the big alphabet soup of a.net.

Cheers

Deaner

Not a big fan of them. They are complicated and expensive, it just takes too much time the field, compared to the time it takes in PS with a minimal loss of quality.


At worst, you screw up and die.

I've tried one, and while if I were doing a lot of architectural work I might invest, I couldn't justify it otherwise - and I don't think they compare to the flexibility offered by view cameras.

For my purposes, the perspective control offered by Photoshop is sufficient ... and a lot cheaper!

Dean nice pic! What kind of scanner do you use? And you do shoot medium format slides, correct?

The quality is just stunning!
