Canon FD Resouces - Older Tilt and Shift FD lens


Canon FD TSE 35mm f2.8
Canon Lens TS 35mm f/2.8 S.S.C.

Introduced in March, 1973, this lens, both the tilt and shift adjusting mechanisms are built-in, which alters the optical axis of the lens to obtain special effects. The tilt adjustment device sets the lens to be slanted against the film surface, and alters the focusing plane on the subject, so the depth-of-field can be increased.

The shift adjustment device consists in moving the optical axis of the lens while it remains perpendicular to the film surface to compensate perspective. The tilt adjustment is used when walls or fences are shot obliquely alligned and the shift adjustment is used for shooting a tall building without the perspective distortion that made it look as though it is leaning backward.

NOTE:- Info on the NEWER autofocus version

These mechanisms can be used in any direction by adjusting the lens with the camera in a fixed position. This lens is neither an FL or FD type although it does not have the required signal pins that allows full aperture metering with AE-capable Canon bodies. The metering has to be stopped-down to the shooting aperture.

One of the advantages of the fully eletronic lens mount developed and patented by Canon for use in its EOS/EF System is the ability to produce Tilt and Shift lenses that uses automatic diaphram for full aperture metering with any EOS camera bodies. The EOS/EF System has three such lenses, namely the TS 24mm f/3.5L, TS 45mm f/2.8 and TS 90mm f/2.8.
