A Review of the New TTArtisan 100mm f/2.8 2x Macro Tilt Shift Lens

The new TTArtisan 100mm f/2.8 2x Macro Tilt Shift lens offers some of the most versatility ever seen in a lens: high levels of magnification and tilt-shift capabilities, all wrapped up in a popular focal length and an affordable price. Can it deliver on all those fronts it promises? This great video review takes a look at the performance and image quality you will be able to expect from this intriguing lens. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video review takes a look at the new TTArtisan 100mm f/2.8 2x Macro Tilt Shift lens. The 100mm f/2.8 doubles the magnification of a traditional macro lens, but it also adds tilt-shift capabilities, which make it extra desirable. Depth of field is at a premium in macro photography, which often means resorting to time- and effort-intensive techniques like focus stacking. So, the ability to control depth of field independently of aperture via the tilt mechanism holds a lot of promise as a way to reduce workload. While it may not totally eliminate the need for such techniques, it can lower the amount of images needed or allow you to get away with just a single shot in some circumstances, plus the tilt-shift capabilities can be used for other neat effects. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on the lens.
