Only through the viewfinder. Metering is fine in live view, which is how I generally use my TS-E lenses (makes focusing easier, too).Hector1970 said:Once you tilt the metering system goes all wrong in its reading , you have to manually adjust.
Me neither. It's kind of hard for me to shoot an ultra wide angle prime, much harder to make a right composition without ability to zoom. I'm not sure if a TS zoom is possible for dummies like me? I noticed I tend to shoot the 11-24 mostly at 20+, so a 16-35 f/whatever would be probably a better choice for me. If I ever decide to buy a TS, it won't be anything wider than 24mm for sureahsanford said:I've never shot T/S myself, but a friend I shoot landscapes with does all the time on his D800.
He's always told me that shorter FL T/S is great for architecture, but longer FLs are better for popping the miniaturization effect. He'd shoot nighttime cityscapes with a Nikon 85mm T/S and it was amazing how he could transform an entire skyline into a miniature/diorama effect centered on one street corner, or how longer (but not too long) exposures with car tail-lights would turn into a localized laser/lightning bolt effect. Cool stuff. I may rent one someday and try it myself.
