Hello All :
Why are the functions of Tilts/Swings at the SENSOR PLANE in Digital Tech Cameras relegated to annals of Analog 4x5/8x10 history ?
I ask this question as when I used to shoot Architecture using a 4x5 camera, I did often used the Tilt adjustments at the FILM PLANE to correct for the Keystone Effect when the Camera had to be tilted up to achieve the correct composition and when Rise/Fall movements were insufficient - By adjusting the Rear/Film Standard to a perfect vertical, the Keystone Effect of converging parallel sides of a building, for example, were the optically corrected.
As an example, attached is an image of a building shot from Street Level - To achieve this composition, I had to tilt the entire camera up which then introduced the Keystone Effect - To mitigate this, all I did on the 4x5 View Camera was to Tilt the Rear/Film Plane to a vertical and the sides of the Building were parallel as they should be. It is this ability I refer to.
Are there any specific reasons why this "feature" is not incorporated in Digital Tech Cameras, like say the Alpa MAX ?
Do Photographers not miss this ability as I have not read any posts lamenting the omission of this "feature" ?
If the Digital Tech Cameras have to be tilted up to achieve the desired composition, is correcting the Keystone Effect then accomplished via PS - Is this what most of you all do ?
I am most interested to learn the reasons for the omission of this control - Are there certain limitations that a Digital Sensor brings forth that may not permit this adjustment, while permitting this option at the LENS PLANE ?
I await your kind replies.
