Description

Mixing a normal field of view with perspective- and depth of field control, the TS-E 45mm f/2.8 from Canon is a tilt-shift lens well-suited to producing well-corrected imagery with a natural perspective. Up to +/- 8° of tilt is possible, for focus control, and +/- 11mm of shift, to adjust perspective and composition. The tilt-shift mechanism can be rotated +/- 90° for applying movements in any direction, and a tilt-locking mechanism can be used while shooting for greater stability. The lens also employs a floating optical system and rear focusing design to maintain image quality throughout the focusing range and a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual element to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.

Perspective control, tilt-shift lens affords +/- 11mm of shift and +/- 8° of tilt, and both types of movements can be applied independently, and parallel or perpendicular to one another. Additionally, the tilt and shift functions can be rotated +/- 90° for applying the movements in distinct directions.
Tilt-locking mechanism ensures the lens stays in place while shooting.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
Floating optical system and rear focusing design maintain clarity and image quality throughout the focusing range, from 1.3′ to infinity.
Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
