ACTUS-XL-35 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.
The compatibilty with the Actus Mini platform allows the use of a variety of lens adaptors in combination with several camera bodies. These system bodies are mounted with their bayonets to the upright holder, which can rotate between landscape and portrait position within a second. This can be done without having to remove the camera body or bellows.

A basic configuration of a Cambo ACTUS-XL-35 consists of a 300 mm monorail, front assembly without lensplate, a rear frame for an optional camera bayonet and a 250mm long bellows.
