Shooting panoramas with the Canon TS-E 24mm lens

In addition to being able to greatly reduce distortion, tilt-shift lenses are also excellent for capturing images to stitch together into panoramas. Photographer Adam Karnacz headed into the British Lake District to capture panorama images with Canon's 24mm TS-E Mark II lens.

To create a panorama with a TS-E lens, Karnacz utilizes the shift functionality of the lens. The lens is set to an aperture of f/8, exposure time is 1/50 of a second at ISO 100. There are five total frames captured to stitch together into the panorama. With a wide-angle lens, if you just tilt the camera to point it at different parts of a scene for a panorama, there will be distortion. This is not the case with a tilt-shift lens.
