TS lenses

Hi all,
Has anyone used either the 24 or 45 TS lens with the MKII? If so, what result?

i used the 45mm at a wedding a few weeks ago (the photographer let me try it). I liked it a lot but it was a little tricky to get just the right focus I wanted, probably because I've only used a TS lens a couple times in the past for photos.
I'm also picking up a 45mm tomorrow that I'll be incorporating into my Love Story project this weekend. Sorry I don't have any samples online at the moment!
I'm sure you've seen the tilt-shift timelapse videos on Vimeo? Amazing!

Interesting and funny. I live close to the beach where this was filmed. Nice spot. Like models but moving. Good work.

Another T/S lens for the Canon are the hartblei super rotator lenses... the advantage is that not only do they shift and tilt but the axis can be adjusted 360 degrees

If you see one used you might want to jump on it... they are hard to find.

I recently bought a Pentacon to EOS adapter with 11mm of shift. Basically you can mount any Pentacon 6 lens to it, and shift it 11mm in any direction.

Tilt is not too interesting to me, but shift is great if you want to film a building and keep all the vertical lines parallel.

The adapter and 45mm lens together was ridiculously cheap.

I've owned both the Canon 24mm and the 45mm TSE lenses. If you want the tilt swing defocus look then I would go for the 45mm or possibly the 90mm. I think the longer lenses give a more prounouced effect.

I now use a Nikon 85mm PC lens and a Nikon 24mm f3.5 PC-E lens with Canon adapters.

Also consider the excellent Zork adapter Tilt and the Pentacon or Hartlei solutions. (edit - forgot to add the Mirex to this http://www.mirex-adapter.de/index.htm)

For simple perspective correction using shift only there are plenty of choices, you can use Nikon, Olympus or Eastern European shift lenses amongst others.

Thanks Dan, I have the Canon 45mm. There have been some mixed responses to its use, mainly in landscape video where some people prefer to see detail in everything. Understandable. I liked the Shanghai clip BTW. The music was a little sentimental which suited the start. The voiceover was a little upbeat though. Well done nevertheless. I visited Shanghai not so long ago. Enjoyed it very much.
Cheers, Peter.
