New Base Tilt for ACTUS series
Cambo is expanding the ACTUS series with an optional BASE TILT Function. Having the possibility to use a tilt on the rear standard of the Actus has been a regular question. Now this is available for those photographers who want to add this.
Cambo has designed a tilting unit that can be mounted between the existing standard and the monorail. The tilt unit offers up to 15 degrees of forward and backward tilt, in increments of 5 degrees. So it is very simple to incline the monorail, and revert both front and rear standards back to perpendicular position, while keeping both standards exactly parallel, using a positive lock that slots into a grid pattern, protected against accidental movements.
Next to the extra functionality as tilt, you also receive the possibility to extend the vertical shift by using this as an indirect movement, especially useful when you use lenses with a larger image circle beyond the default rise and fall reach.
The extra focus layer on the rear standard has another additional feature: you gain 42mm more focus draw. This applies to all three versions of course.
FULL BASE TILT KIT
AC-375 is the Full Base Tilt Kit. It consists of a base tilt block for the front standard, one for the rear standard and one for the tripod mount. This combination allows for complete control of all tilt functions.
Note that the base tilt is additional to all existing movements on the Actus system.
DUAL BASE TILT KIT
AC-373 is the Dual Base Tilt Kit. It consists of a base tilt block for the front standard and one for the rear standard. This combination allows for complete tilt control of both standards, additional to all existing movements.
REAR BASE TILT KIT
AC-371 is the Rear Base Tilt Kit. It consists of a base tilt block for the rear standard and comes with a matching spacer under the front standard. This combination allows for additional tilt control of the rear standard.
Also note the original tilt on the front standard remains accessible as before.
