Canon Rumors got word that Canon may announce new tilt-shift lenses for Photokina 2014.

Both the Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8 and TS-E 45mm f/2.8 are murmured to get replaced. And the possibility of a third tilt-shift lens (no hints here) is also in the air. The 90mm and 45mm are pretty old lenses, a replacement is not implausible. The lenses should be announced for Photokina 2014.

Some more speculation are going on about a Canon macro tilt-shift lens.

How To Shot Portraits With A Tilt-Shift Lens (Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8)

Canon TS-E 45mm

Have you ever thought about shooting portraits with a tilt-shift lens? Sounds weird to you? Then check the article at Photofocus to see the creative possibilities that come with a tilt-shift lens. In the article the Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8 lens is discussed. From the incipit:

If you aren’t familiar with a Tilt-Shift lens, then you’re probably got a somewhat confused face going on as you read this. It is a special lens, mainly used for architectural photography, due to its ability to help correct perspective distortion and increase depth of field with the tilting action of the lens. Essentially the lens has a very precise bend in the middle that can be dialed in and angled.

But, one can use this tilting action to get just a nice slice or sliver of focus. These types of lenses create this specific kind of blur that is now highly mimicked in post processing applications and are now being integrated in many point and shoot cameras. Being a little bit of a bokeh and blur lover, I naturally thought that shooting portraits with this would be a rad experience!

Canon Explorer Johnny Haglund’s Borneo Adventure Goes On – A Report About Diamond Mines

 

Canon Explorer Johnny Haglund’s Borneo adventure goes on. Read his new blog on diamond mines

Visiting the Cempaka diamond mine here in South Kalimantan, Borneo, is my second assignment in a year to cover diamond miners. The first one was in the Democratic Republic of Congo (see my earlier blog from October 2013).

The Cempaka diamond mine and the Mbuji Mayi diamond mine in Congo, are in many ways two totally different worlds. The labour is the same, though. These men work just as hard as those I met in Congo, and the surroundings are hot, humid and mosquito infested, with rain every now and then pouring out of the sky, making the mud sticky like glue.
