Rogeti have announced a minor TSE Frame update mainly concentrating on improving its usability.

The lens mount for the Canon TS-E17mm and TS-E24mm mk2. lenses lets you attach the lens to a tripod and shift the camera, to reduce parallax errors when stitching.

For a detailed review about using the TSE Frame and why it’s a fixture in Keith’s kit bag see:

Update: There is now a specific version of the TSE Frame for the Canon TS-E50mm lens

TSE frame changes

The latest version of the TSE frame features a number of modifications which primarily improve usability of the device.

I’ve used one with my TSE lenses for a while now . The changes reflect more refinement to the design. I’ve shown them in in the original/updated photos below. [Click any photo to enlarge it]

The bubble levels are a bit easier to read, and are a bit less prone to collecting dust and moisture.

levels and plate

Part of the mount is changed to plastic. This reduces any chances of marking the paint on your lens.

The side 45º bubble level is changed to a line type.

The sighting and support bar at the front is replaced by a plastic one.

As well as saving a bit of weight, I found it a bit easier to attach/remove.

The TS-E17mm is quite prone to flare (see my TS-E17 review) so being able to rest a card on top makes for a useful shade outdoors.

plastic sight and support

Not huge changes, but a welcome sign of how the people behind the TSE Frame actually make use of it and how they value usability from a photographer’s point of view.

It would be remiss of me not to point out that now that I’ve two of them, I keep one attached to my 24mm and one to the 17mm

    Hi again Keith,
    I’m looking at these with interest. Occasionally I have to slightly increase my field of view with architecture work. I’m wondering how you think these would compare in terms of final result and usability when compared with a good panorama set up?
