Basically this calls for a technical view camera that allows full range of movements that go beyond shift and tilt lenses found in dslrs and MF camera systems.

Rental is first choice however it isn't for the inexperience photographer once you find the right combination of support, camera and lens consider buying your kit.

Re: Which camera is best for Building Shot

I second, third and forth on the view camera! There is no other way I would think to shoot it. So easy to correct for convergence and divergence in camera. Just remember to keep your film plane parallel to the subject plane and your all set. Do the same with the lens plane if you want to keep your focus to run along the same path. If you want to bone up on the advanced concepts do a search on "schiemflug"

I recommend renting as well unless you really want to commit to lugging around a hefty picture taker! It would be fun to see a sports photographer on the sideline tilting and shifting while panning LOL :-) Speaking of which it's time to dust mine off and and play!

Never tested it out but look at this if you've got the cash:
