Although 35mm in focal length (normally: 63 angle of view), the lens is essentially equivalent to a 24mm lens in angle of coverage (actual 83).
Critical architectural, studio and composite panoramic photography. 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.
