Hello Dr. Shepard,

i think youre talking about the "Scheimpflug"-method. 

But i do not own a  camera that is capable of that (SINAR,Rollei, etc). 
These would be too heavy, complicated and time-consuming to be used at 
holliday-trips. I'm using a Minolta 800si and a SIGMA-Zoom (28-200).  

As long as i had time enough to convert my bathroom into a darkroom for 
days, i used a method like this to correct that distortion when 
exposing the prints. 

So i thought this could be done mathematically on the pixels in RAM. 
There are more than needed for a "close to chemical"-print since i got 
a Canon FS4000 filmscanner.

thanks for your  Mail
