The Canon EF 17mm f/4 L TS-E is an ultra-wide angle perspective tilt shift lens, available to rent from Camera Hire. The 17mm TS-E lens provides wide-angle views for both crop and full frame imaging sensors. Canon’s unique rotation system allows control of tilt and shift direction independently of each other, consequently allowing perspective and depth of field to be controlled separately, ultimately providing the photographer with greater flexibility.
With an 104º diagonal field of view, combined with ±6.5° of tilt, plus ±12mm shift and ±90° of rotation on both the tilt and the shift axis’ the lens features an excellent variety of adjustments to achieve outstanding creative results. The 17mm TS-E also features mechanical locks on the tilt-shift controls to avoid unwanted adjustments.
In achieving outstanding performance across the entire frame and minimal distortion, a large diameter molded glass aspherical element is used, whilst chromatic aberration often seen in wide angle photography is rectified by four UD elements. Camera Hire currently stocks the full range of Canon TS-E lenses, including the Canon 17mm f/4L TS-E.
