Welcome to Adorama TV. I’m Mark Wallace. This week, we will take a closer look at the Amazing Canon TS-E 24mm Tilt-Shift Lens.
If you are not familiar with tilt-shift lenses, then make sure you watch the tutorial about tilt-shift lenses that I created on digital photography one-on-one this year. Canon released two new tilt-shift lenses earlier this year; they release a 17mm and the new 24 mm that I have right here.
Now, this new 24mm isn’t just an upgrade to the previous version, but it’s a new design, so let me break down the new features for you.
First, this lens has much larger image circle coverage, allowing it even greater shift and tilt capabilities. The image circle on this lens is now 67.2mm instead of the 58mm image circle on the previous lens.
Now, if the concept of the image circle is new to you, let me quickly explain it by using these little cutouts here. All lenses have to project a circular image represented by this green cutout here back to the camera sensor, represented by this little red rectangle.
Now I know these aren’t in proper proportion but work with me on this one. So what happens is the image circle has to be large enough to cover the entire sensor like this, so the lens projects light in a circle man in this sensor captures it as a rectangle, sort of like this. Now, on shifting lens has an image circle of about 43mm, which covers the sensor just fine, sort of like what you see here, but a shifting lens well needs a much larger image circle so that when the lens shifts really o you need a large image circle like this.
So as the lens is shifting around, you’re going to be safe. With the previous version of this lens, the image circle was 58mm, allowing the lens to shift around by about 11mm. Still, the new lens has an image circle of 67.2mm, which allows the lens to shift 12mm in any direction, but it also does something else it minimizes the vignette into the new ability to combine tilt and shift in new ways.
Let me talk about that; there’s a never-seen-before for tilt-shift lenses, and it’s the ability to change the relationship of the tilt and the shift independent of each other. Now we’ve always taken tilt-shift and rotate both of those together in 90 degrees like this. So here’s our tilt, and here’s our shift. We’ve always been able to rotate that in 90 degrees, but this lens now allows you to move the shift and the tilts independent of each other so I can move the shift. Then I can move the tilt independent of that, so we have two different controls, and that is brand new with this new design. So the other interesting thing is this lens can now move in either clockwise or counterclockwise direction so you can go both ways moving the entire thing.
So there are new movements, and so that larger image circle allows photographers to make all of these new movements without the fear of a significant vignette of light, which is important now to control all this movement. The lens has knobs to adjust tilt or shift, and on the opposite side, they have locking knobs little switches.
So let me show you closely what these are tolt knobs on the top here if we flip the lens over underneath here there’s a little lock right there and what the lock does is once that is locked, you cant tilt the lens, and so if you’re just shifting things up and down, that’s going to make sure that this doesn’t accidentally tilt and change the plane of focus but if you unlock that you also have this little locking dial right here. What allows you to do now is you can tilt the lens wherever you want it and lock that in.
Now once that’s locked, when you’re moving this camera.
I’m not going to move the tilt out of whack accidentally. I’m going to make sure that everything stays nice, stay nice, and firm, and the same thing is true of the shift. You’ve got a little lock on the opposite side of that. So, when you loosen that up can start shifting your lens up and down.

The richest man in the world is Jeff Bezos whose net worth is estimated to be upwards of $150 billion. In case you didn’t know, Bezos did not start building his Amazon empire in Silicon Valley, but rather in his basement! Wouldn’t it be great if you could build a successful online business as well? Online businesses are certainly the way forward. It is a tough market out there so you must be well equipped before jumping into the arena.
A Google search for “how to successfully start an online business” will procure 799,000,000 results. Of course, Google’s algorithm picked up tens of millions of websites that are not relevant, but it is safe to say that at least the first couple of pages are pertinent to the question at hand. Now, do you want to try navigating through 50 websites in search of genuinely helpful information?
There is a popular misconception that Google’s top search results are the most trustworthy. This could not be farther than the truth; as competing businesses only grab the top spots based on high volumes of traffic, acute search engine optimization methods, and successful marketing strategies. Especially for the inexperienced seeking to keep up with the competition, it can be extremely dangerous to assume that popularity equates to the truth.
If you are unable to differentiate between what information is legitimate and what is misleading, then you are setting yourself up for failure right from the beginning. Therefore, it is important to find a legitimate trainer who will provide you with real proven strategies to help successfully guide you through the process of running an online business.
Finding the right prospect is not an easy task as there are often many “get rich fast” scams out there, so you will need to do your homework. Luckily for you, we did your homework for you!
