Video: Using a horizontally shifted lens

A short video (9 mins) looking at the results of shifting a lens in a left/right or horizontal direction. It allows the camera viewpoint to be shifted to the left or right of the centre of the frame.

It’s a less widely used technique than basic shift (rise/fall).

Combining it with a panning of the camera can change the apparent geometry of the image, whilst still retaining the rectilinear projection of the lens.

One of a series of short videos looking at different functions of tilt and shift lenses.

There is much much more about tilt/shift lenses and their use on our tilt/shift index page.
