Essential for architectural photography. Try to take a wide angle picture of a building. At some point in the picture you can't get everything nicely aligned. Thats where the tilt shift function comes in and compensates for this.

I was checking out / self poisoning leica lenses few days back and found this picture that might give you a better picture of the many fuctions of these type of lens

Hope my understanding of tilt shift was correct :p

I think the current link of TS lenses from Canon is still coming from the Film days, they didn't really revamp a new version for digital era
