Cambo Actus-XL DB

Product Description

ACTUS XL is a fusion of both the ACTUS and ULTIMA camera platforms, maintaining full camera movements.

Modular construction means that the Actus XL accepts all ACTUS lens plates and lens adaptors, sharing the same mount. The rear standard has an easily exchangeable frame holder for either a digital back or a DSLR/Mirrorless Camera Body.

With the use of full view camera movements the photographer will be able to be more versatile, be more creative and will be getting more professional results much faster than before.

Both front and rear standards have lateral movements, vertical adjustments, swings, and tilts for optimal control over perspective and selective sharpness.

The default 300mm monorail is suitable for short, medium, and long focal lengths. A separate focus slider and fine focusing rack make it not only quick but also very easy and precise to focus.

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.

Cambo ACTUS-XL-DB shown with digital back (not included) and Rodenstock lens (not included).

A basic configuration of a Cambo ACTUS-XL-DB consists of a 300mm monorail, front assembly without lens plate, and a rear frame for an optional SLW-Adapter and a 250mm long bellows.
