ACTUS-DB2 View Camera

The Cambo ACTUS-DB2 is an evolution of the ACTUS-Mini series for mirrorless cameras and DSLR's.

The ACTUS-DB2 is for use with  Digital Backs from Hasselblad, Mamiya-Leaf and PhaseOne.
It shares many parts with the ACTUS, thus minimising size and weight. Although sensors used in digital backs are considerably larger than those in mirrorless and slr cameras, the height of the ACTUS-DB2 is just slightly more.

View camera movements add versatility to your toolkit, increase creativity and enable results that can't be obtained otherwise.
The Cambo ACTUS-DB2 is small and lightweight and fits easily into a small case or bag.

Cambo ACTUS-DB2 shown with optional lenses and optional digital back.

A basic configuration of a Cambo ACTUS-DB2 consists of a 175 mm monorail, front assembly without lensplate and a rear frame with an optional choice of digital back interface. The Actus-DB2 comes with a standard bellows.
