Cambo ACTUS-XL-35 overview

  • 1Description

Fusing Cambo's ACTUS and Ultima lines, the ACTUS-XL-35 View Camera pairs the sleeker form factor of the ACTUS cameras along with the extensive full range of movements from the Ultima cameras. In addition to the versatility afforded by the camera movements, this camera system has also been designed as fully modular with its ability to accept all existing ACTUS lens plates, various DSLR and mirrorless camera types by swapping the bayonet mount plates, and even digital backs by swapping the rear frame. As a view camera, this system offers geared movements on both the rear and front standards for correcting perspective distortions, achieving an extended depth of field, or producing creative selective focus effects. The 11.8"-long monorail design permits both quick-slide and fine-tuned geared focusing movements, and the monorail can be exchanged for optional longer rails for macro applications. Reaping the benefits of both a complete view camera system along with the versatility and adaptability of a system designed for digital photographers, the ACTUS-XL-35 is a flexible solution for precise image-making needs.

Camera Movements
A full system of geared movements is available for fine-tuned control over the positioning of both standards:
  • Tilt: +/- 20° on both standards
  • Swing: +/- 20° on both standards
  • Shift: +/- 25mm on both standards
  • Rise/Fall: +/- 20mm on both standards

Additionally, both fine (up to 1.6" / 40mm) and coarse/quick-slide (4.7" / 120mm) focusing movements are possible, with a maximum extension of 8.1" / 205mm possible depending on digital camera type in use.
Camera Features
  • Compatible with optional extended ULM monorails and bellows for macro applications.
  • Tripod mounting block is fitted with a 3/8"-16 mount for attaching to a tripod or stand.
  • Monorail and standards feature scales for making precise and repeatable movements.
  • Zero-position clicks are incorporated into each movement type for more intuitive handling.
  • 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.
  • Shift and rise/fall allow you to move the camera or lens position without affecting focus, making this configuration especially ideal for stitching multiple exposures or adjusting composition after applying tilt or swing.
  • Rear interface can be rotated between vertical and horizontal orientations without having to remove the digital camera or bellows.
  • Black anodized for greater durability and scratch resistance.
Modular Design
As the central component within the camera system, a series of lens plates and rear bayonet mount plates can be used to configure this camera to specific digital camera and lens combinations:

Lens Plates:
  • Copal 0
  • Copal 1
  • Copal 3
  • Short-barrel Alpa lens panels
  • Short-barrel WideRS lens panels
  • Cambo ACTAR lenses in ACTUS plates

Lens Adapting Plates:
  • M39
  • Hasselblad V
  • Mamiya RB/RZ
  • Canon EF
  • Nikon F
  • Leica R
  • Mamiya 645 Pro TL
  • Pentax 645

Camera Bayonet Mount Adapters:
  • AC-780 Canon EF
  • AC-781 Canon EF-M
  • AC-783 Nikon F
  • AC-785 Leica M
  • AC-786 Sony E
  • AC-787 Pentax K
  • AC-788 Micro Four Thirds
  • AC-789 Olympus-OM-D-Series of Micro Four Thirds cameras
  • AC-790 Fujifilm X

Additionally, the bellows can be replaced with the optional ACDB-254 Bellows and the rear frame can be exchanged with the optional ACXL-970 ACTUS-DB SLW Frame Holder for attaching digital backs to the view camera system.
