Yaw free movements

When you adjust the lens or film standard of a large format camera by tilting it sideways and then follow by applying swing to the same standard youll find that it will not be parallel in any axis to the other standard. To ensure sharp focus you then need to make multiple adjustments. A camera with yaw free movements allows the photographer to tilt and swing either standard without having to re-adjust after.
