    True, but front swing takes the lens off-axis, requiring more lens coverage and swinging the plane of focus off the focal plane.

    Unless your camera has axis tilts and swings.

    Dude,
    that's why you use a lens that covers like a 20x24 image ( on your 4x5 ) or you fix everything in photo shop !

    I was referring to the optical axis of the lens, not on/off axis tilts of the standards. If you tilt the lens, you tilt the axis.

    My opinion...it's all on the GG and don't much care if things change shape in the landscape.

    But do you consciously use back swing in the field to change shapes of objects or is it a side effect of trying to maximize DOD and/or align it as you want. Why would you not wish to go for wyswyg vs modifying shapes unless for effect? Just curious.

    The exact shape of objects ('reality') is relatively unimportant in most cases in the natural landscape. I'll use back tilt to get leaning trees to line up nice and straight, or to get straight trees to lean inwards when it helps to move the viewers' eyes around my composition. Back swing could come in useful to create a different visual swoop down the length of a log. I always photograph for effect. I am not a documentarian.

    WYSIWYG is exactly what I get -- that's what is great about the ground glass.
