Cambo 65th Anniversary in 2011

Cambo BV has been founded in The Netherlands in 
1946 and has the distinction of being the first studio camera manufacturer to produce an all-metal large format camera.

Based in the town of Kampen in the East of The Netherlands, Cambo has since built a reputation for 
high quality, precision-engineered cameras, stands 
and other studio equipment.

Today, Cambo is based in a modern 2,000 sq m facility equipped with the latest computer controlled design and machine tools, ensuring production to the highest standards. Emphasis on design innovation ensures that the Cambo range of High-End Cameras and photographic accessories continues to provide for differing needs across the marketplace, from the entry level to the sophistication of the "Ultima System" and the 
ultra-precision of the "Wide RS System" which caters for the precise needs of the digital photographer, in studio and on location.
Wide RS Anniversary Edition

To celebrate Cambo’s 65th year in manufacturing professional camera systems, Cambo have announced a limited edition of the Wide RS System.
The ‘Cambo Wide RS Anniversary Edition’ will be limited to 65 certified sets presented in a high quality recessed customised case.

Each set will include a Wide RS camera body in either black or titanium finish equipped with hand crafted ergonomic wooden handgrips. 

A new vertical gear system has been designed on the rear of the camera to compensate for additional weight when using a digital camera back.

To complete the set a groundglass/fresnel lens and digital back interface will be supplied together with the new Cambo RS Loupe kit. The RS Loupe kit is a 3x Schneider optic loupe mounted on a repositionable plate on the rear of the RS to ensure accurate focussing.
