Tilt Shift vs Photoshop
Mar 10, 2008

My question has to do with correcting the 'distortion' of an image caused by tilting the camera with respect to the horizontal plane. Taking architectural photographs, especually in tight quarters, often requires this tilt - in order to capture the feature(s) of interest.

I have been accustomed to correcting this distortion in Photoshop, but I often wonder if it would be better to try to capture these images using a tilt/shift lens. My camera is a 40D, and I have been using a 17-40 f4L for these kinds of photographs.

In my experience, the degradation of the resolution toward the edges of the image can be very significant, depending on the amount of correcting performed in Photoshop, of course.

I have in mind Canon's 24mm TS-E lens for my architectural photography. I should appreciate hearing from anyone who uses these Tilt/shift lenses, especially for architctural photography.

Thanks!
