Cambo Digital Repro #5 – WRS Macro Adapter

Cambo Digital Repro – WRS Macro Adapter

When shooting macro photography you may be familiar with DSLR camera systems and using a combination of three extension tubes. This method extends the distance between the camera lens and sensor plane increasing the magnification and bringing the focus closer.

The principle of macro extension is the same, however in this case the sensor plane distance is increased as this is where you will fit the Cambo Macro Adapter.

To extend the distance with the WRC400Repro system, Cambo have engineered three (extension) Macro Adapters WRS-1048, WRS-1017 and WRS-1010. The WRS-1048 is shown in the image below.

Cambo WRC-1048 Macro Adapter

Each Macro Adapter fits directly to the camera platform and accepts a SLW Interface Plate to connect the digital camera back.

The WRS-1048 allows you to use, for example, the Rodenstock 50mm HR Digaron-W at 1:1 ration and shorter lenses with even more magnification. If required you can connect all of the Macro Adapters together to go beyond 1:1 magnification. This of course depends on the lens you wish to use, contact your local dealer or Cambo sales for further advice.
