Product photography would be another good use of a tilt-shift. Sometimes it is near impossible to get the whole product in focus with standard lenses.

It's strange how people can be totally happy with a camera and as soon as they hear there is something slightly better out there it immediately becomes a useless piece of junk that's incapable of taking good images. Just because the D800 has slightly better resolution doesn't make the 5DIII a bad camera. It's like when the 5DIII got announced. Up until then, most had nothing but good things to say about the 5DII, but all of a sudden people were acting like it was some ancient piece of crap camera and questioned whether it was "good enough" (even though it's plenty of camera for most).
Relativity is a bitch.
Question - why do you think the first pose looks awkward?? I can see how her arms in the second shot look cut off, but the first I really enjoy. I understand that you guys are saying the post is done too warm, but would you really be able to tell had I not posted the before pics??
Once again thanks for all the feedback. keep it coming! In a constructive way....
The only chance for mirror less cameras to erode the DSLR market is for pros to start using them. People buy affordable DSLRs to feel like they have a "pro quality" camera. Most will never bother to learn what an aperture is, nor have any idea how big their sensor is. They basically have expensive point-and-shoots.
Rubbish pros only make up around 15% of the market. Consumers make up the rest.
I think you guys seriously underestimate the sophistication of the average entry level dslr consumer. A few years ago, that was me. I didn't know much about cameras back then, but I sure did not go down to best buy and plop down $600 for the first dslr I saw. I did months of research on the internet first. Before I purchased I already knew that MP was not as important as IQ (also that MP did not = IQ). I also understood that buying a dslr means you are buying into a system of lenses and accessories that are at least as important as the body itself. Maybe all consumers are not as thorough as I am, but I find it hard to believe that the "average" consumer that is smart enough to know they want a dslr is so uneducated that they are reduced to the levels that you guys on here claim.
Sub $200 dollar cams are an impulse buy and not subject to much thought - therefore you get very inexperienced people buying them who look at MP count. Cams above $500 are no longer an impulse buy and the consumers in the market for those cams are more sophisticated than you think.
