The widest tilt-shift lens in Canon's lineup, the new TS-E 17mm f/4L lens expands shooting possibilities exponentially on EOS Digital cameras. Designed with UD glass to minimize and compensate for chromatic aberrations, with a specially coated aspherical element for the highest possible glare-free image quality, this tilt-shift lens offers a diagonal angle of view of 104° on a full-frame SLR camera.
New TS rotation lets users freely combine tilting and shifting within the range of +/- 90° in the direction of movement. The lens also has an improved tilt & shift knob with an enhanced range of movement of up to +/- 6.5° and 12mm respectively, with a revolving function for better operability. It uses a circular aperture for beautiful out-of-focus areas and has an SWC lens coating to control ghosting and flare to a far greater degree than with earlier coating technologies.
Tilt–shift photography and lenses are described as the use of camera movements on small and medium format cameras and the use of tilt for selective focus. "Tilt–shift" is a combination of two different types of movements. The first movement is tilt, which is the rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane. The second movement is shift, which is the movement of the lens parallel to the image plane. Tilt-shift lenses can be used for both still photography and video filming and are great for use in shooting miniature scenes.
