Re: First attempts using Tilt shift lens - Loving it!

Actually, I didn't correct for distortion on those photos, because they looked acceptable to me.

On others, I have used the Samyang 24mm 1.4 lens profile in LR while in RAW. After conversion you have to do it manually or use something like PT-Lens.

I shot these at F8, but should have probably stopped down to F11 to get that last bit of sharpness in the corners. Still experimenting. Same with the flowers in the front.

I'll be going out again today to see what I can accomplish with the tilt mechanism.

I have noticed that there is some smearing of fine detail at the extreme top edge when using the full up shift.

But certainly for the price of around $700, I'm quite pleased.

It does have me wondering if I would be better served by the Laowa 12mm with the MSC.
