Cambo Actus Focus Stop
We see many Youtube type reviews, some good and some not as well informed about the features the Actus system provides.
One blog that I recently viewed suggested the lens would hit the sensor should you be using a Digital Back. It’s wrong and let me tell you why.
The Actus system is modular and can be used with several digital systems. The Actus Mini designed for DSLR and mirrorless, Actus GFX and XCD for Fuji and Hasselblad.
When is comes to using a Digital Back from Phase One, Mamiya Leaf and Hasselblad the Actus DB2 is designed slightly different as there are a multitude of lenses that photographers already own and want to adapt them to their camera system.
To prevent the rear element of the lens from hitting the digital back Cambo include a Lens Stop or Focus Stop which is marked with the most popular Schneider and Rodenstock lenses. Simply slide the Stop to the lens being used and lock into place. That’s it!
Here is a video showing the Actus-GFX and an image showing where the Stop would be when using an Actus DB2.
