I've got a Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L Tilt-Shift Lens in my future that I can actually put to work. Jim's and SteveZ's praise have convinced me of its value. I've been doing some research and came across this interesting article on using the 17mm with a 1.4x converter. Sounds promising and is sure cheaper than having both 17mm and a 24mm. Any thoughts from those who have experience with the 17 TS-E?

I never thought of using this combo; never even suspected it would work. But how cool is it that the 17+1.4 combo is optically better than the 'old' 24mm T/S? That said, with a 5D3 image I'd probably just crop the frame from the bare 17mm T/S or move a tad closer to my subject. In my experience, though, when you need the 17mm T/S, you really need all the wide you can get.

As a final note, you have to admit that the combo sitting on a tripod would make a 'Wow!' client impression.

Thanks for the input Steve. While I had not thought of it, it sure would be impressive on a tripod

I'm with Zim, it never would have occurred to me. Following that line of reasoning, what would the Nikon 24 perform like with a 1.4? Is there a reason to buy the 45 PC I was thinking about?

BTW, thank you to everyone for your thoughtful analysis of my ISAP query. Makes me once again realize what an incredible group we 're blessed with here.

I first saw the use of a TC with a TS lens in a behind the scenes of the creation of a timelapse. Interesting technique.

Will your Nikon 24 take a TC? It could also then take the 1.7 TC which gets a good write up.

Did you find the thoughts of a former member useful?

Good looking pictures. I'm an aviation fan, so these strike a particular chord!

it all depends on the TC and the rear element of the lens the kenko 1.4 works with some lenses that the Nikon ones don't just based on design.

Looking at the rear element of the 24mm PC-E it looks like it might work with the Kenko...but I'm with Zim...crop it or move closer is the easier solution for most cases.

Boy, Have I ever missed you guys - I have many pages to catch up on...

I know that quite a few of you have a GoPro camera. The following may be of interest to you. A pal of mine (Stuart Smith) has designed a self contained 1, 2 or 3 axis stabilizer for the GoPro.

See: http://www.rocksolid-tech.com/

It is quite an incredible stabiliser. almost a 'steady-cam' for the GoPro. It can be fitted to crash helmets, motorbikes, cycles or even cars & aircraft. Skydivers, Paragliders etc will grab this product the instant it hits the market. Stuart is in need of help in getting support from social media and if possible, pledges.

Stu has launched the product for potential backers. More technical info here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1496576492/stubilizer-gopro-compatible-active-camera-stabiliz

If you could copy the links to your Facebook and Twitter, we will be very grateful. Thanks

dmirkovich, welcome to MA2A and it's nice to see you here. Please make yourself comfortable. The ride is long and the in flight movie is even longer. When you have a moment, post a photo or two when possible. Otherwise, join in and become a member of the MA2A family.

That looks like a quality product design for sure. I'm wondering why the more expensive sponsorship slots were so minimal? Seems that you'd want to have a bunch of those to raise funds more rapidly. Does he have any plans for units that would work with larger camera bodies?

What happens in these situations if the financial goal isn't reached? Does the whole effort just drop off the map?
