Cambo introduces the X2-PRO camera system, a new tool that gives photographers the ability to shoot with their existing SLR cameras using view camera movements.
The innovative X2-PRO camera system allows technical camera front standard movements such as rise, fall, swing, tilt and shift. Ultra-fine adjustments of the lens plane used for perspective and fine focal plane control are driven by two patented CAMBO CROSSGEARING drives that have the feel of liquid-smooth precision.
In addition, Cambo's dedicated mounting system places each different digital SLR in the exact optical centre of the camera's sensor and features a quick-release for use in landscape or portrait position without removing the bellows.
Compatibility is available for DSLR cameras
from Canon: 1D/1Ds-series, 5D-series, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 7D
from Nikon: D4, D3, D3x, D2x, D200, D300, D700 and the new D800
from Fujifilm: S3/S2 and the S5
from Mamiya: Mamiya AFd and ZD
Now you can also use the X2-Pro in combination with the PhaseOne DF digital camera with P65+ and P45+ backs. This combination results in a view camera with integrated viewfinder, or -when using live video focussing- full size previwe on the computer's monitor. You can create an Tilt-Swing-Shift adapter with extreme movements for any lens used with this combination, ranging from 90mm and up with Schneider or Rodenstock lenses, or use Mamiya RZ lenses ranging from 50mm to 350mm
Take advantage of the Live Video function of the latest DSLR models to create an easy-to-use and precisely controlable view camera system with the X2-Pro.

With a maximum bellows extension of 150mm, the Cambo X2-PRO lets the photographer choose from their existing Schneider, Rodenstock, Hasselblad or Mamiya lenses, where there is no extra expense for additional lenses, OR take advantage of the latest digital lenses from Schneider and Rodenstock.
Simply choose a bellows with the correct bayonet, a dedicated mounting block and select which lensboard is needed, and turn the DSLR into a lightweight and efficient technical view camera, for use in the studio or on location. Tethered or untethered.
