CAMBO ACTUS-XL-DB View Camera

The Cambo ACTUS-XL is a new view camera system, evolved from the ACTUS and ULTIMA series.
Where the Actus Mini excels in being the lightest and smallest camera platform, the ACTUS-XL system is a fusion of both the Actus and Ultima camera platforms, maintaining full camera movements.
Modular is the keyword. The Actus-XL accepts all Actus lens plates and lens adapters, sharing the same mount. On the rear standard you find an easy exchangeable frame holder for either a digital back or a DSLR/Mirrorless camera body.
Both front and rear standard have lateral movements, vertical adjustments, swings as well as tilts, all for optimised control over perspective and selective sharpness.

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.

The default 300mm monorail is suitable for short, medium and long focal length lenses. A separate focus slider and fine focussing racks make it not only quick but 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, both mechanical and electronic lenses can be used.

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