Real Estate Photography Weekend News Items

August 15th, 2009

Review of the Canon 17mm f/4 TS-E L: Michael Riechmann just put up the first review that I’ve seen of Canon’s unique 17mm tilt/shift lens. Michael calls it a “remarkable optic”.

Monoslideshow Version 2.0: Monokai has updated Monoslideshow to version 2. I used the old 1.0 version a lot from Lightroom via the free code from The Turning gate that allowed Lightroom to generate Monoslideshow 1.0 slide shows. You can’t do that with Monoslideshow 2.0. Still, the new Monoslideshow is a very customizable Flash slide show engine. Now you have to use XML to customize slide shows.

  • OOS everywhere. I’m gonna grab one when I can get hold of one.

    Thanks for your posting Michaels review of the tilt shift lens. I would love to play with one to see how it can improve my real estate photography and my other photographic interests.

    While surfing the web I came across a great site that can apply this effect to your photographs. Developed by Takayuki Fukatsu, the engine has some very interesting results I wanted to share with you. The site is

    Hope this is of some interest to you and your readers.
