The innovative Cine-Tilt lenses by Schneider-Kreuznach combine the features of full-frame primes with an added tilt function up to ±4°. By sustaining the field of view during focus and tilt actions, the new cine-tilt design means that previously unimaginable images can be taken by moving and tilting the focus plane. The lenses extend the possibilities of the out-of-focus range, especially when using tilt with a large aperture. A 4° tilt angle on the sensor plane corresponds to an 80° or more tilt of the focal plane, depending on the focal length and distance setting.
