Tilt/Shift Lens support
« on: February 15, 2010, 10:18:27 pm »
This may seem like an impossibility, but I believe that Canon\'s MkII TS-E lenses (17mm and 24mm) record the shift/rotation offset in the EXIF. If so, it would be relatively trivial to apply an appropriate offset to the lens distortion, vignetting, etc. calculations - allowing the (tiny but important amount of) imperfections in these wonderful lenses to be corrected. I\'m sure DxO already has many architectural shooters (Gerry Kopelow is featured in their "masters" section). Supporting automatic optical correction of these significant new lenses would surely cement DxO into place as THE architectural photography "weapon of choice". :-)

Note: the use of lens tilt would undoubtedly complicate matters, but in the context of architectural work it is rarely used and could reasonably be excluded from the support.

While there is nothing wrong with doing this, I have the new Canon TS-Es (17 and 24) and there is very little that needs to be corrected. I\'ve seen a very tiny amount of c/a with the 17 in a few places, but it already gets corrected automatically. There is very little vignetting or sharpness falloff even when shifted, but maybe DXO could improve this a bit.

I\'ve been an architectural shooter for more than 30 years using top of the line view camera lenses and these two TS-E lenses are the most outstanding wide angles I have ever seen.

Posting to a very old topic... I know.

Canon just released firmware updates for a couple of cameras, adding support for DPP's DLO (Digital Lens Optimizer) optical lens corrections for TS-E tilt-shift lenses, which means that the cameras will now record the information needed to do that - even by DxO.
... and more.
