ACTUS-XCD View Camera

The Cambo ACTUS-XCD is the Actus mini view camera optimised for use with the mirrorless Hasselblad X1D and X2D.
It comes with a standard bellows and an adapter to accept the Hasselblad camera body.

A view camera adds versatility to the photographer's tool kit. Expand  your creativity and get professional results in one shot. Using selective focus or optimisation of the focus plane are great tools in i.e.  food and product photography. Architectural photographers will appreciate the rise/fall and shift movements.

Mirrorless camera bodies can be used as digital back. The Actus adds view camera movements - rise/fall, shift, tilt and swing - to any suitable lens.

Size matters. The Cambo ACTUS has been designed to provide maximum functionality in a small and light  form factor.

Since the Actus-XCD's bayonet holder is detachable, it enables an effortless swap between various camera systems. Just add the required bayonet.

The basic configuration of a Cambo ACTUS-XCD consists of a monorail, front assembly without lensplate, a rear frame with XCD camera bayonet and a  standard bellows.

Cambo ACTUS shown with optional lenses and optional camera body. Hasselblad X1D and X2D cameras don't have in-body shutters. For use with a view camera the photographer will have to rely on the Electronic (rolling) Shutter.
