Tilt-Shift Questions
Jan 23, 2009

My apologies if this has been covered before - I searched this forum but didn't see these.

1. I've read a number posts describing the use of T/S lenses to create panoramas, but I haven't seen anything that describes how 'wide' the panorama could be. In other words, using the 24mm or 45mm to create the maximum width pano without moving the camera, approximately what focal length equivalents (in width, not height) would result?

2. I've also seen a good number of artistic uses of a very shallow DOF, but not as many showing the opposite. Given the described abilities of these lenses, it sounds like one could take a portrait at fairly close range, using a wide aperture (say for low light non-flash situations) and have the subject's entire head be in focus. Is this accurate or have I missed something?
