With the introduction of the ACTUS-XL series, Cambo’s system is now extended across the Actus line of camera products.
Where the Actus Mini excels in being the lightest and smallest camera platform, the ACTUS-XL system is a fusion of both the Actus and Ultima camera platforms, maintaining full camera movements.
Modular is the keyword. The Actus-XL accepts all Actus lens plates and lens adapters, sharing the same mount. On the rear standard you find an easy exchangeable frame holder for either a digital back or a DSLR/ Mirrorless camera body.
Both front and rear standard have lateral movements, vertical adjustments, swings as well as tilts, all for optimised control over perspective and selective sharpness.
The default 300mm monorail is suitable for short, medium and long focal length lenses. A separate focus slider and fine focussing racks make it not only quick but very easy and precise to focus.
The compatibility with the Actus Mini platform allows the use of a variety of lens adaptors in combination with several camera bodies. These system bodies are mounted with their bayonets to the upright holder, which can rotate between landscape and portrait position within a second. This can be done without having to remove the camera body or bellows.
When using a digital back, the upright holder will accept any of the Cambo SLW-adapters. For photographers that are using digital backs without Live View, there is an adapter mount available for the Cambo sliding back. There are lens panels available for #0, #1 as well as #3 shutter systems, both mechanical and electronic lenses can be used.
