Schneider Cine-Tilt Lenses
At BSC EXPO I found the Schneider stand showing their latest development in Cinema Lenses, which are tilt focus lenses. These only actually pan the focus plane and not really tilt nor shift the focus plane, but the effect it can produce is really interesting. As by rotating the plane of focus, you can easily have multiple subjects in focus without needing them to be on a horizontal line to the cameras, but also because it is geared you can use the tilt to rack focus in a way that not many have done before.
Watch the video below to see what these lenses can achieve.
