Samyang posted video on benefits of Tilt and Shift lenses
Samyang posted a video: "Tilt-Shift 24mm f/3.5 In Action".

The first part demonstrates the functionality of the Samyang 24mm f/3.5 ED Tilt-Shift lens.

Then, it transitions into a good basic tutorial on the benefits of using tilt and shift lenses for a variety of subjects, including panoramas and product photography.

Good for them! A great resource for people who wonder what it's all about.

Thanks for posting the link.

Interesting that "focus ring" is translated to "DOF control ring", early in the video.

P.S. at one point, the translated dialog says "tilt", when I think it should say "shift"; otherwise, it looks pretty good.

A tilt shift lens is one of the few primes I would consider to go with my zooms. They offer some very unique views. Hopefully this helped people understand it.

Just curious, but why would you do a company promo with dice earings?

Alea iacta est.

Yes, but what has the Rubicon to do with this?

If you know Latin and a bit of history, you understand what it stands for in a general sense.

I get the connection between the dice earrings and "Alea iacta est"; "The die is cast". I laughed.

My question about the Rubicon was to explore if you think that there's a secondary connection between "crossing the Rubicon" (i.e. the die is cast, you're burning your bridges) and the introduction of the Samyang 24/3.5 TS.

Thanks Fred. Tilt-shift is on my WANTED list.

...guess she didn't have time to change out of her referee clothes for the video clip

Yes, but she's wearing a tie so that balances things

Unrelated, but does it use a die cast barrel, and does the video have a cast to die for?

Good general video on tilt shift. I did not realize that you could use it for macro photography.

Has anyone used an 85mm tilt shift for macro photos?

I have a situation where I need to photograph products and some are pretty small, small enough for macro work. Well... As you know, working in macro photography, having the entire product in focus takes quite a few photographs with different focus points all merged together in Photoshop. That can take a lot of time.

I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this.

I have heard the Canon 90 TSE is a very good lens for macro work (no personal experience). Use some extender tubes for real closeup work. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/12192-GREY/Canon_2544A003_Telephoto_Tilt_Shift_TS_E.html

Focus stacking with http://www.heliconsoft.com/ is a lot easier/quicker than stacking in Photoshop.

I'm very interested in a 24mm Canon, but its a cumbersome effort that requires a tripod from all I have read. This little lady does not say that...Even still, it seems its worth the effort.

You really should use a stable base when you're using lens tilt. Imagine, try to keep a handheld lens steady enough to see the difference between no tilt and two degrees of tilt. Good luck.

OTOH, it's relatively easy to use shift for handheld shooting. As long as you can get it in focus.

Thanks for posting this Fred.

I wish they'd added video showing the changes of the T/S as it was adjusted, but I guess we can't have it all.

It's a while since I used the Canon T/S lenses for photos, but it's something I'm looking in to again for video, and Samyang will certainly be a consideration since I already have a couple of their Cine lenses and they work very well.

The video suggests what the lens can do but does not explain how it happens - A bit like saying a fantastic photo can be taken with a Nikon D800E and it has something to do with pressing the shutter button. It doesn't rate well as a training video.

Harold M. Merklinger had some nice animated articles but I lost my links to them. The trouble is that they were pdf files and you have to look through each file before you can find out if it's the one with the gif animations. Look for the "Hinge Rule". I'll post the links if and when I find them.

Here we go.... Look for the .mov files (not gif)
