what is in my mind:
the red racket: why is it so crispy from top to bottom but the blue racket (i suppose it is almost the same distance) is such in a blur.

tilt it down more.... from the pic, i judge
this give kwun some work-out shot...
mount the camera to sturdy tripod, adjusting height
tilt the lens, to enable focusing sharp-on from front till back
squint through eyepiece checking the focus is sharp
re-adjust here and there to get this shot....
er... 5 frames, to get this result?

i don't want to spend US$1000+ on a canon TS-E lens as i doubt i will be using it enough to justify the cost.
what i did is i took a medium format lens, specifically, a East Germany made Pentacon Six TL lens, which is made by Carl Zeiss Jena (the E. Germany division). the focal length is 80mm f/2.8. it is a decent lens, but the best part about it is that it has a very large register distance (from mount to film/sensor) so that allows the insertion of a tilt mechanism between a DSLR and the lens. furthermore, the lens being a medium format lens means that i can tilt it a lot without vignetting.
so i bought the tilt mechanism adapter which will adapt the Pentacon mount to a Nikon f-mount. as for the lens, after reading about the Pentacon tilt adapter, i remember when i was really small my dad had a Pentacon camera. so i asked him for it. he hasn't touched it in 20 yrs.
the lens cost me nothing, the adapter $120. so for $120 i get a 80/2.8 tilt lens which is perfect for taking racket photos as flat racket photos are rather boring.
next, i need to get a nikon->canon adapter and some extension tubes. the lens only focus down to 1 meter so the extension tube is needed to get to macro distance.
