Cambo’s Wide RS series cameras got my attention when I decided to switch to digital medium format from 4×5 large format films. It was not only because of Cambo’s reputation but also because of the features their cameras offer, especially the greater range of movements and smaller size compared to those of other manufacturers. I bought the Wide RS 65th Anniversary Edition as my main camera. Since then I have been busy building a new portfolio of images and after a recent road trip will be adding many more images to the collection.
Currently I use the Rodenstock HR Digaron-W 40mm with Tilt/Swing lenspanel. I will probably add the Rodenstock 32mm lens later. Right now though I stitch images when the 40mm lens is not wide enough. Thanks to the solidness and precision of the Wide RS camera, stitching images is never an issue. My digital back is a Phase One IQ140.
My main areas of interest are landscape and architecture. Yet I like to explore different types of photography and experiment with new techniques and technologies. I focus on forms, shapes, contrast, and textures. Some of my work were reflections of my mind, while others were just what I found interesting. I use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for post-processing and X-Rite i1Display for monitor calibration. I work with a local printer to make large format prints of my photographic work.
The Wide RS 65th version is now completely sold out as a limited number of cameras was manufactured. However there are 5 Wide series cameras available, with lenses and accessories. See below. More information can be obtained from your local Cambo dealer or you can email your questions directly to Cambo.
