Offering extensive perspective and focus control along with the convenience of working with your digital camera, the black ACTUS-GFX View Camera Body from Cambo effectively transforms your medium format mirrorless camera into a digital view camera. As the core component within a modular system, this view camera body serves as the primary piece from which you can pair a Fujifilm GFX with a variety of lenses to reap the benefits of geared camera movements for correcting perspective distortions, achieving an extended depth of field, or producing creative selective focus effects. While resembling traditional large format view cameras in function, the ACTUS system also echoes the compact form factor of the digital cameras it is designed to be paired with and is optimized for use in both the studio as well as on location.

This view camera body is delivered with a 6.1" monorail as well as a 4.9" bellows to permit working with a variety of lens and camera types. The monorail is designed to fit within the Arca-Swiss style quick release system for easy mounting to a tripod, and is also fitted with both 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 mounts for attaching quick release plates. Optional lensplates can be added depending on your desired lens type, and the monorail and bellows is also interchangeable with optional wide-angle and longer versions of each. Additionally, besides the included GFX bayonet mount, other optional smaller format camera bayonet mounts can be used in conjunction with the optional AC-78E Bayonet Holder.

Camera Movements

A full system of movements offers extensive control over perspective and focusing settings. Geared on-axis tilt and swing movements are performed on the front standard and the rear standard permits geared rise/fall and horizontal shift movements:
  • Rear Rise/Fall: +0.5", -0.6" / +12mm, -15mm
  • Rear Shift: +/- 0.8" / 20mm
  • Front Swing: 360°
  • Front Tilt: +10°, -9°

The swing and tilt movements of the front standard rotate about the optical axis in order to avoid having to re-compose or re-focus after each movement is applied.

Camera Features

  • Revised rear standard features geared horizontal shift along with a removable bayonet holder that has been specifically designed for the physically larger mount size of the GFX camera system.
  • Both fine geared and quick-slide focusing adjustment types are available.
  • Bellows and monorail focusing allows you to achieve closer focusing distances without the use of extension tubes or other macro attachments.
  • Zero-position clicks are incorporated into each movement type for more intuitive handling.
  • Monorail is compatible with the Arca-Swiss-style quick release system and also features both 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 mounts.
  • Front tilts and swings allow you to alter the plane of focus for employing selective focus techniques or Scheimpflug settings for extensive depth of field. Additionally, these tilt and swing movements are used to correct for convergence and other perspective distortions.
  • Rear horizontal and vertical shifts allow you to move the camera position while retaining the same lens position, making this configuration especially ideal for stitching multiple exposures without having to adjust the lens.
  • The included Fujifilm GFX camera bayonet mount allows you to rotate between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations without having to adjust the actual orientation of the view camera body.
  • This black finish body is anodized for greater durability and scratch resistance.
  • Compact overall form factor is relative to the size of DSLR and mirrorless cameras.

ACTUS System

As the central component within the modular ACTUS system, this view camera body serves as the means to which you can attach a variety of optional lens plates as well as other camera bayonet mounts via the optional AC-78E Bayonet Holder. Additionally, besides the standard included bellows and monorail, a variety of optional bellows and monorails are available for wide-angle and close-focusing/macro shooting applications.

Can the standard bellows accommodate the canon 17mm ts-e? How much shift is possible with this combination on a GFX body?
Asked by: kyle
The Actus-GFX is not usable with Canon TS-E lenses. The flange distance of the camera does not allow for focus when mounted to the Actus. Instead consider the CA-GFX which is a direct mount adaptor for use with Canon lenses.

question

Which lenses work with this?
Asked by: John
I am looking at this for the incoming 100GFX IU ordered I am seeing some conflict in the answers below - if I am reading this right it says both that the GF lenses will work and that they also will not work due to focusing Originally I thought of adding my old 6x7cm RZ glass (the 75pc and 350 APO in particular) to this rig or maybe my 55 grandegon etc due to the 4x5 coverage they provide - or just using a fotodiox

Are there lenses that will NOT work with the GFX100, even with AC-795 mount? I thought I heard some will not focus to infinity.
Asked by: Kelly
There are lenses that are not compatible, but Cambo does not have a compatibiility list. In the user manual, they warn that "Due to the modularity of the Actus camera system, many camera-lens combinations are possible. Please be aware of the possible collision of the rear lens element and the rear standard and/or the sensor."

Will this take the GFX100?
Asked by: Pradip
The Actus-GFX will fit the GFX-100 in a portrait orientation only. For use in landscape orientation you will need the AC-795 Bayonet kit for GFX-100.
