p.1 #1 · Best of TS-E: Favorite Shots


I have been doing a little work with Photomatix and wanted to throw something up for discussion on the 24 TS-E II, when I found there didn't exist a "best of" thread for 24 TS-E. Then I got to thinking: why not a thread for any of the TS-E (even "TS") Canon lenses? Let people put up some interesting images from this range of lenses.

Feel free to submit anything from the 90 TS-E to the FD 35 TS.

I'll kick off with a couple from last night. I don't know if these are my total favorites (they're not!), but seem an interesting diversion and maybe something to talk about, at least.

1Ds2, 24 TS-E II, f/8 @ ISO 100; five shot fusions.

Great shots!

Mike -- Thanks for the reminder! I thought I'd seen one before -- that's a great thread. I hope opening this thread to the other Canon TS models bring in a few more contributors.

Those are just excellent. I had myself convinced that I didn't want/need this lens. You ruined it for me!

Not necessarily the best I've done but a little something from my archives... All shot with 24 TS-E I (no tilt, only shifted to correct converging walls). I may repeat same shots with 24 TS-E II some days.

Location: Ananda Temple, Bagan

Really like your Golden Gate Bridge shot. Considering how far above the focus plane the bridge is, I'm curious as to how you managed to keep the bridge in focus after tilting your lens. How high above the ground was your camera/lens? And at what aperture was the image taken? Thanks in advance if you don't mind providing a few details about the shot.

Mike, The camera is quite low, with the bottom of the camera perhaps 3-4" above the water.
Here the ballhead is horizontal and the ballhead clamp is grasping the L bracket from the side of the camera body.






Using a lot of downwards tilt, everything in the horizontal focus plane should now be in focus. It works well that there is not a lot of vertical relief in objects in the near field. For example if there were one much taller rock in the foreground, the top of it might easily be out of focus. The tilted focus plane is a wedge of in-focus volume. As the subject get further away, this wedge increases in height (or depth) which also depends upon your aperture. In this case 5DII, TSE II with 1/125 f8 ISO 640. Imagine taking the focal plane dof with a normal WA lens and in the TSE lens rotating it forward about 70 degrees. What used to be front to back dof is now horizontal dof, rather thin close to the camera but with much more depth at a distance.
To keep the towers straight and the waterline from curving requires some upwards shift.

Another from the ongoing Culver City series or urban landscapes. 24mm t/s three shot stitch. Shot it both Saturday and Sunday. Was a few minutes too late Saturday so I went back.

Thanks for the details, Mike...really appreciated. Totally forgot about the ability to shift while tilting...

I think these are my 2 best from the Canon 17mm TS-E, one from Zermatt Switzerland and other in Ghent Belgium. Both hand held.
