Product Description

  • Full-Frame | f/1.4 to f/16
  • Normal Length Prime Lens
  • Focus Control with Tilt Mechanism
  • Manual Focus Design
  • Two High Refractive Index Elements
  • All Metal Construction

Bringing advanced focus control to the masses, the TTArtisan Tilt 50mm f/1.4 Lens is an otherwise conventional, normal length prime lens for full-frame cameras. It gives you the power to control the angle of the focus plane up to 8° and can be rotated up to 90° to apply the effect in any direction. It boasts a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, which allows it to perform in challenging lighting conditions as well as providing depth of field for isolating subject matter more efficiently.

Made entirely of metal, it features a classic manual design with a knurled focus ring that provides smooth, continuous focusing motion, as well as being compatible with a number of focus follow rigs, ideal for the video-centric creator. An optical design of seven elements in six groups includes two high refractive index elements, intended to improve chromatic and geometric aberrations.

A perspective control lens providing up to 8° of tilt angle, giving you the freedom to adjust the plane of focus to match your subject, and to create a wide range of unique visual effects.
Video-specific optimization: The focus ring and aperture ring have been designed to fit the majority of focus following rigs, standard practice in most cine lenses.
Featuring a 50mm focal length, this lens can be used as a standard optic when the tilt mechanism is not necessary.
Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, creating a narrow depth of field ideal for subject and background separation in portraits when not using the tilt mechanism.
A 7-element, 6-group optical design includes high refractive index glass elements to combat geometric distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
The 12-bladed diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
