This new lens allows for a wider angle of view focal length than previously available. Existing lenses include 24mm f3.5, 45mm 42.8, 90mm f2.8, and 150mm f3.5.
Much like large format view cameras, the Swing/Shift system lets
Tilting or swinging the lens can alter both apparent depth of field and an object's shape. Shifting allows repositioning of objects within the frame without changing the relationship angle between the object and the film plane. Combining these movements facilitates control over perspective distortion that affects the shape proportions of objects. Additionally, the Swing/Shift System uses bellows with a built-in rack and pinion mechanism, which extends for close focusing.
The Clairmont Swing/Shift and its lenses may be purchased individually. The new 17mm lens has a US list price of $4900.
