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.
