5D video and TS-E lens shift
« on: May 24, 2009, 04:16:25 PM »

I've seen many videos of TS-E lens in tilt position for selective focus, but none with the shift mechanism in operation. Does it exhibit artifacts, such as rolling shutter (JelloCam), when changing shift while recording? Is camera shake relevant when operating it? If so, maybe a motorized remote control can be developed, that when attached to the shift knob can control its speed of rotation.

Just some ideas floating around.

Thank you,

Chris Sanderson

Back in my 35mm motion picture days, we used to use the 'look' of T/S lenses fairly regularly. Camera shake is definitely an issue, so: better to use a wider TS (24mm) than a longer (90mm) and also, be either very gentle and subtle with the TS adjustment or be brutal in the hope that the extreme change will mask the camera movement. We never used a motorised adjustment. I cannot imagine that rolling shutter would be any more of a problem than ordinarily...this is jellocam work anyway
