Hi, I am brand new to this forum so apologies if this is a very basic newbie question. I did come across an older thread on here relating to using extenders with the Canon TS-E line but it gave me a warning to post a new topic. I have replied to the older one as well as starting this new one.. Hope that is o.k.
Basically, I can only afford one lens at the moment, so figure I have two options..
a) Buy the 17mm TS-E and then use the 1.4x extender to get roughly a 24mm TS-E equivalent
b) Buy the 24mm TS-E and use a Pano head for stitching for the rarer times I would need such a wide field of view.. Then also use the 1.4x Extender to get a 33.6mm TS-E..
The second option is definitely my preferred I think..
With the Stitching/Pano head, the query that I was hoping someone may be able to answer relates below
Was just wondering if you are using Canon TS-E lenses, whether using a front rise/fall effects the nodal point of a lens and therefore create issues when trying to stitch images together?
For example, if I was doing a 2-3 pano stitch and wanted to use front rise to keep verticals straight for architecture (keeping the front rise in the same position for each of the shots) would this work? Or does the nodal point vary as soon as you introduce any front rise/fall?
I know that by introducing tilt that this alters the nodal point and you would effectively have to realign your Pano head as soon as you introduce any tilt (obviously completely unsuitable for field work) but was just wondering if this also applies for rise/fall?
As I see it, my option for stitching for architecture would be extremely limited if I cannot apply front rise to the stitched images (can live without tilt )
Hope this is clear
Thanks so much!
Look forward to hearing from you guys and hoping someone can resolve this issue..
