    mount the camera to sturdy tripod, adjusting height

    squint through eyepiece checking the focus is sharp
    re-adjust here and there to get this shot....
    er... 5 frames, to get this result?
    haha. wrong again.

    i rest the blue racket on the black background.

    left hand hold the MP100 above the blue racket.

    right hand free hold the D200. pre-tilted and pre-focus.

    adjust, adjust (yes, a lot of squinting), snap.

    ONE frame!

    ..(before reading the rest of the posts) i wondered, why is the MP100 floating in the air and how is it being held??..Was kwun, or maybe his wife, holding on to it??..or maybe it's being held by somekind of a clamping device??..

    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.
    Hehe......I was almost there!

    Marky, i used a tilt lens. with a regular lens, the focal plane is always parallel to the image/film/sensor plain. a tilt lens allows one to tilt the focal plane to more angles than parallel to the film/sensor plain. this allows me to tilt and align the focal plane with the racket face and get the whole MP100 in focus, but since the blue racket is not in the plain, it is not in focus. makes some nice effects!
