    The other movement that I wanted to explore was forward tilting of the rear standard by combining tripod and camera movements, which also requires the back-tilt.

    With the front standard set to forward tilt, Scheimpflug stuff is a little faster, but the other movements are not possible.

    I'm very new to all this, but I have already found a couple of situations where front fall would be useful, which is why I decided to do the swap back.

    Please excuse me if I have misunderstood something along the way.

    Actually the front standard is so quick and easy to reverse, I did wonder if it was part of the original design/intention.
