Part 2: "Becoming A Great Arch. Photographer
« Reply #220 on: January 09, 2010, 06:35:34 PM »

Alright, it seems that even with the optical advances of today and smaller images recording size, when working with lenses longer than normal, tilt is still a good thing to have with a MF back. Right?

If so, just one question, how stable are the standards on the Arca Swiss M Line 2?  Will it give lens stability comparable to the 12 max?  Also, are all movements geared with course and fine tune dials?  Last, anyone know of a dealer in NYC that would have one in stock to look at?

Never-mind, found the thread where you tested the accuracy.

Anyone know why (or where I can read why) using small apertures beyond f/11 with MFDB does not work?

I'll admit I have not read through this whole thread yet, but if not already covered, can someone mention if they have experimented with comparing results from Lightroom's Upright tool and Tilt-Shift lenses?

I was too lazy to try it but now that I have sold my TS-E, I'm having withdrawal symptoms.
