Creative image composition
The walimex pro 24mm wide angle lens with tilt and shift function offers a vast variety of posibilities for crative image composition. No matter whether optical illusion, e.g. in miniature optics, or unusual image formats with selective blurring, the TS lens realizes these tasks in the usual high-quality mode. The wide angle lens offers a fixed focus of 24mm and a high lens speed of 1:3.5. An overall number of 16 coated lenses (including two aspherical and two ED-lenses) ensure high image quality. Aperture settings and focussing are made manually.
"Shift, tilt and focus"
The independently rotating tilt and shift mechanism is the highlight of this lens. The housing can be displaced by +/- 12mm (Shift) and slewed by +/- 8.5° (Tilt). The shift function displaces the lens system in relation to the focal plane, whereby it is able to compensate for converging verticals. This is of particular interest in architectural photography. With the tilt function the lens system can be gradually swivelled, whereby e.g. the focal range can be displaced while maintaining a short exposure time. This vast number of optical settings offers numerous creative possibilities, also e.g. in product and landscape photography.
