I am working my way through the Stroebel book, and read the description of asymmetrical tilt on the rear. It seems like a really clever idea, and would probably give more accuracy than focusing in the middle, and then tilting until something at the top, or bottom, was in focus too.
What is not quite so clear is how it works in an overall workflow. If anyone has experience with these cameras, I would love to hear a bit about it:
1) Does it often happen that there is nothing on the bottom that you want to focus on, so that the whole thing becomes overly iterative?
2) How does one combine this with the general tilt/swing/shift/rise/fall setup of the rear, without having it break down into a series of small experiments?
3) Which cameras offer this, apart from a few Sinars?
4) Is there a parallel asymmetrical swing?
