Used Photex 80mm F2.8 S&T Lens Nikon/MF
Multicoated 80mm F/2.8 Tilt/Shift lens is made with high quality precision type mechanisms
Tilt / Shift your lens for more control of perspective and depth of field similar to a view camera.
- Ideal for architectural photography when controlling perspective.
- While photographing interiors, still lives, portraits, objects for advertising it often happens that total control of the depth of field is required. With ordinary lenses, it is achieved via the aperture. The most widespread method to increase the depth of field is to minimize the aperture of the lens. However, it frequently happens that this is not possible: when you close the aperture, it is necessary to increase the exposure. In this case, it is hard to photograph objects in motion, or often even is impossible. With the minimum aperture the lens yields a “dry” unsaturated color image. Using the lens with TILT feature allows to increase or reduce the depth of field at any aperture. When photographing architectural objects, the distance from the lens to upper and lower parts of the object is different. It would result in a distortion known as a “falling building” effect (the parallel vertical lines unnaturally come up to one point). Similar problems arise when photographing a model on a catwalk, interiors, sculptures placed on high stands, paintings and architectural details located at an unreachable height. TS lens allows to compensate perspective distortion, to vary the depth of field and zone of sharpness and soften the image if necessary.
