19mm PC what?

Hi,

Last year I bought the 19mm pc. I had wanted a tilt shift lens for years and after reading many, many reviews decided on the 19. However, a year later now and I still don’t really understand how to use it. Not the mechanics of the tilt and shift but what they do regarding my photography. I finally got a L bracket and have kept the 19 on the camera to force myself to use it but I just don’t get it. The lens can turn on the body why? What does tilting the lens accomplish. Shift I understand for shooting panoramas but is there any other purpose for shifting the lens. I won’t sell it. My local camera store would offer me far too little compared to what I initially paid. So if someone could kindly explain this enigma of a lens I’d be much appreciative.

Thank you,

ExpatSooner
