Tilt shift lenses allow u to tilt the front section of the lens up or down. The advantage is that this allows less distortion of curving straight lines (especially on buildings) which is obvious on most lenses, especially super wide angle ones. My explanation is really in layman's terms as i don't really know how they exactly do what they come up with, but simply, it prevents getting those converging lines u see on buildings if u shoot them with normal lenses, especially when up close or using a super wide angle lens. Therefore, it is most useful for architectural purposes as they provide a distortion reduced shot. If u still dunno what i'm talking about..haha...go to the canon webby... :what:

great stuff they are..but most of our usage pattern doesnt justify the cost of getting one ie hardly need 2 shoot until so "exact" ;)

i wonder what happens when your shift it wrongly...

so instead of wanting the corrected perspective... but you use it to distort instead... maybe the owners of the lens wanna try?

just my friday thought.

cool to have upward diverging lines marr.. .haha..

Yes, it can be done. I've seen it somewhere. You can shift it "wrongly" to have an out of this world perspective.

Assume you're at the bottom of the building.

If you shift it in the *correct* direction, and you overdo it, the vertical lines will diverge skyward instead of converge; it looks terrible, like a photoshop effect gone wrong. Or the architects were drunk and made the top slightly thicker than the base.

If you shift it in the other direction, it just converges more, but still looks quite natural. Normally, reverse shift is not very useful/artistic.
