Applications and Options:
The photo to the right was shot at Photokina 2000 using the TrueWide Sliding Back Camera and a Nikon 28mm shift lens. It was a 2 capture shot stitched together manually in Photoshop. For the first shot the lens was shifted all the way down. For the second shot the lens was rotated 180 degrees or shifted all the way up. The current PhotoShop CS3 will do the 16 bit stitching for you automatically using the photomerge feature.
