Title: Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II

Seeing as there isn't yet a thread for this amazing lens, I thought I'd start one off with a few pics:

Now I really regret the decision of doing away with my 5D2...

...and very tempted to "borrow" the TS-E 24mm II from the department's storage room. *lol*

PS: Neuro, have you tried using polarizing filter with the TS-E 24mm II?

Neuro, have you tried using polarizing filter with the TS-E 24mm II?

Yep.  I have an 82mm B+W Käsemann CPL (Slim mount, becuase I also use it on the 16-35mm II) that does very well on the TS-E 24mm II.

Question: does the amount of tild or shift applied get recorded in the metadata or do you have to remember?

Question: does the amount of tild or shift applied get recorded in the metadata or do you have to remember?

No, it does not get recorded in the metadata - tilt, shift, and rotation are purely mechanical and the settings are not transmitted to the camera.  You have to remember, or write it down.  The only -E (= electronic) part of the lens is the aperture control.  As a side note there, even that can be 'broken' when you use a TS-E lens with an extender - they are compatible (although the TS-E manual indicates that extenders cannot be used), but the aperture data are improperly recorded in the EXIF header.

Thanks! I was a bit afraid there's going to be obvious vignetting with the 82mm filter.

This is one of those time where I wish there's special filter holders designed for the 17mm (something along the line of Lee's filter holder for the Nikkor 14-24). Having the option of using a filter really makes a difference...

Thanks! I was a bit afraid there's going to be obvious vignetting with the 82mm filter.

Not much risk of that - the image circle of the new TS-E lenses (17mm and 24mm II) is huge!  The only reason the hood fot the 24mm II is so short is that when you apply a lot of shift, you get vignetting (but then, you get vignetting on the side of the shift even with no filter or hood mounted).  At shifts up to ±8, there's no vignetting and no effect of adding a filter - even the CPL stacked on top of the MRC UV (F-Pro mount) is fine.  Above ±8, you start to see some shading - but removing the filters doesn't help significantly, so it seems to be an optical 'feature' of the lens.

Neuro, very good shots, your ones in Beijing!
Let me say, by the way, that you don't need T&S to get parallel lines in the digital era! ;)
To stay in Beijing, let me show you a Steven Holl architecture in Beijing. EF16-35L II at 35mm, PP LR 3.6. The point of shooting was extremely close, since the street was very narrow...

What do you mean? Straighten the photo in post?

Then please show me a fullsize, non-cropped image with the same effect and same corner quality. and also, adjust DOF like you can with tiltshift, for example full DOF on a landscape image at f8. Also with rotated plane of focus. It's only possible with tiltshift.

The Crop Tool in LR 3.6 has "angle adjustment" to straighten angles/lines.

True.  DxO can correct keystoning, too.  But you need to know ahead of time that you're going to need that, and frame loosely to allow for the cropping space needed for the corrections.  Plus, you'll have soft corners, not as bad as a de-fish, but definitely soft.

Do you mean something like the two following examples? And in regard of cropping, it is exactly for that reason that I like the big megapixel range of my 1Ds and 5D. I like to be free to recompose my images by cropping them regardless of just falling lines...

I'm not sure about soft corners... My main field is architecture and I made large use of perspective correction without suffering of soft corners. In the full resolution version of Steven Holl building I can't see any soft corner. Obviously we are comparing a prime lens (24 T&S) with a zoom lens (16-35) and this is not a fair competition!
By the way, the only way for not needing any correction, particularly with a lens quite complex to operate mechanically, is to put it on a tripod. Your Chinese temple, for instance, and the bell tower too, beautiful pictures nevertheless, are not perfectly orthogonal and they need all some adjustment... ;)
Title: Re: Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II
Post by: neuroanatomist on January 16, 2012, 05:09:18 PM
True.  The temple was handheld, however, the Custom House Tower was on a tripod (0.5 s exposure, I think).  However, in both cases I was too close, and really needed a 17mm TS-E for those shots - even with max shift, I had to point the camera up a bit to get the full height of the structure in both cases, and that resulted in the perspective distortion.

Post by: aldvan on January 16, 2012, 05:13:29 PM
The post edit T/S effects really look like they were don in post.
Obviously, since what I did in this PP what is impossible with a T&S: selecting an arbitrary, poligonal area, just to demonstrate what is possible in PP. Actually I don't like this effect and I never use in my compositions, as, usually, I don't like to aim the attention on a subject other than playing with plain and simple DoF...
Title: Re: Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II
Post by: aldvan on January 16, 2012, 05:18:38 PM
and that resulted in the perspective distortion.

Actually this is not a 'distortion', but just 'geometrical perspective'... It appears a 'distortion' in 2D since our eyes+visual cortex do in 3D vision something similar to a PP, and we don't notice the perspective effects in direct perception...

It's razor sharp, that's for sure.  Your pics are pretty good but (for example), the one you posted is a little confusing.  Is the subject the car or the building?  If it's the car I think coming in a bit closer and getting a bit lower would help in terms of composition.  Then again I'm no expert, just my take on it.

Also there is already a thread for the 24TSEII, it's just a few pages back.

really nice thread and really nice pictures!
The TSE24 is extremely versatile a lens. It requires time and frequently it is better to use a tripod and live view. You need time to think about lines, exposure, amount of compensation for shifting-related softness in the corners (i.e. need to stop down), and what you can do to prevent camera blur. 24mm is not enough when it comes to real high-rise buildings. But to me, the TSE24 pulls it off to make these pictures look nicer. And it is nearly distortion-free, a big asset in architectural photography. And yes, it's a pleasure using it on a 5 DII.

To all,

I just rented this lens, and I had a great time using it.  I kind of wish I didn't rent it since I'm going to have to get me one in the near future.

Here are several images I took using the shift only.  It's too bad you can't use tilt and shift at the same time.  :(

 ???  What makes you think you can't use them together?  It's certainly possible - and the fact you can alter the orientation of the movements relative to one another is a great feature of the TS-E 17L and TS-E 24L II (which the original 24 lacks, as do the current 45 and 90 lenses).

Neuro,

I should have been more specific.  As far as I know, they cannot be used both on the same plane since they are oriented 90 degrees from one another.  Back in the day, while using a field camera, I could shift in the vertical and tilt the lens along the vertical.  With the TS-E, you can shift along the vertical, but only tilt along the horizontal.  Am I missing something?

Hi Wade,

Yes, you're missing something.  As I stated above, it is possible to alter the relative orientation of tilt and shift to one another with the lens - the feature is called TS Rotation (which is distinct from regular rotation).  You can shift in the vertical and tilt in the horizontal (or vice versa) OR both shift and tilt in the vertical (or horizontal). 

Note that I'm assuming that you rented the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II.  The TS-E 17mm and the MkII version of the TS-E 24mm have the TS Rotation feature.  The original (MkI) version of the 24mm does not, nor do the TS-E 45mm or TS-E 90mm lenses.  Note that with those older designs, it is still possible to have tilt and shift in the same orientation, but it requires removing the shift plate (held in place by four screws), turning it 90°, then reattaching it.  Keith Cooper of Nortlight Images describes that procedure here (http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/article_pages/modify_canon_tilt-shift.html).   

The difference with the TS-E 17 and 24 MkII is that you can make that change on-the-fly, by simply pressing a button and rotating the front part of the lens.  Not only can you have them at 90° or parallel, it's also possible to have tilt and shift oriented 45° (or any other relative relationship, if you ignore Canon's recommendation) to one another.  The TS Rotation feature is described in the manual.

I've been here before, but my old account is no longer there... Don't know why though...
Anyway, created a new one and why not start with some pictures. I really like the TS-E 24mm. It’s not an easy lens, especially if you want to increase the dof by tilting (the opposite of the miniature effect) but it can give you results like no “normal” lens can.

November is not the most inspirational time of the year, but there is always something. The issue with these kinds of pictures is in my view wether to freeze the water with a fast shutter speed or smooth it out. The trick is not to loose the motion and energy in the water.
Love this lens by the way.

It's been a while since the last update, here are a few from the past few days - all of the Waldorf Astoria Orlando:

Shooting this hotel was tough because there are a lot of obstructions to more flattering angles, but the setting sun provided beautiful light and along with a ND 1.2 filter, I smoothed out the water:
(http://www.ianandersonphotography.com/Recent-Work/Recent/i-spL6qK8/0/L/Waldorf-Astoria_Orlando_4-24-2014_4894_ID-L.jpg)

Following the photographer's rule of "don't forget to look behind you" I turned around and was treated with this amazing sunset over the golf course:

ISO 100 ... DxO PRIME

Why would you use DxO's PRIME NR on an ISO 100 shot?
I used it because it's a 37 second exposure and I had to underexpose a fair amount to avoid blowing out the highlights, which meant boosting the shadows in post.  The clouds in the sky were somewhat noisy, so I thought I'd try PRIME and it worked extremely well.

Well, I just got mine, and I have no effing idea what I am doing. It looks like at ground level, you get your longest plane of focus at about 2.5 tilted down. If anyone has any good tutorials they could post or PM to me, I'd sure appreciate it. I'm not understanding how to predict where the plane of focus it. I thought I would intuitively know, but so far, I don't.

Congrats on the new lens and once you learn how to focus it using tilt, it's not so hard.  Well until you tilt and shift...  Just kidding, but once you get it, it's not as hard as it seems.  The tutorial from Vincent Laforet on DLC is good as well for an intro:

Vøringsfossen is one of Norway´s most famous waterfalls, even though it, with a drop of 182m, is only the 83rd highest waterfall we have, situated close by the road between Oslo and Bergen. It is a national tragedy that the largest and most spectacular falls have been lost to hydro based power production. However, even though 70% of our highest falls are lost, we still have 10 of the world´s 27 highest.

The 24mm f3.5L TS-E II is a fantastic lens. I don´t use it as much as i should, but every time I do, I love it :)
