Built on the success of the SW612 Pro camera, the SW617 features a unique lens shift option for correcting perspectives.

The unique shift option is created by moving the position of the lens panel. The lens assembly runs on mirror smooth bearings which can be locked at any height. 

This lens movement effectively allows for a natural perspective control.
