The worlds first 24 mm shift lens;
this unique lens is capable of correcting perspective distortion by allowing the photographer to shift the lens position parallel to then film plane.
Although 24mm in focal length (normally: 84 angle of view), the lens is essentially equivalent to a 18mm lens in angle of coverage (actual 100).
Critical architectural, studio and composite panoramic photography.
Specially suitable for high-rise buildings and short distances where the 35mm shift can't be used.
To take perspective-corrected pictures:
1) set the camera so that the film plane is aligned parallel to the subject
2) stop down the lens and determine exposure (lens must not be shifted)
3) compose by shifting the lens, and release the shutter.
Compatible focusing screens:
1-1~1-5,1-10 (checker-matte type, specially designed for shift lens),1-13,1-14.
