Pentax lenses are a good alternative to using legacy lenses from Hasselblad and Mamiya, they are new lenses, available off the shelf and the prices are quite attractive.
If you have been following my blog you would have already read about Craig Magee’s experiences using the Cambo Actus and Canon 24mm TSE lens. The following images were captured using the Cambo Actus, Pentax 645-A 55mm lens and Sony A7R camera.
Craig: “I already own a Pentax 55mm lens so there is no point in buying another lens especially as it does a good job of resolving good image quality on the Sony A7R sensor.”
Image info: Camera Landscape – 9 shot stitch, 2mm rise/fall, 11mm left/right shift.
Image info: Camera Landscape – 4 shot stitch, 5mm rise/fall, 8mm left/right shift.
Image info: Camera Vertical – 2 shot, 12mm rise.
Charles: Thanks Craig, this certainly shows the versatility of the Cambo Actus. All those lenses that we love to use and don’t want to let go have a new lease of life and produce some amazing results with the latest sensor technology.
The Pentax lens plate is manual, it does have the benefit of a lever to change the aperture when the lens is already fixed to the Cambo Actus. This is because Pentax lenses have a manual aperture control and we can take advantage of this.
