Residing within an extensively modular system, the Cambo Ultima 45D is a 4 x 5" view camera dedicated to digital capture. Capable of accepting a variety of digital back interface plates, along with a host of lenses, this monorail type camera affords a full system of camera movements through a series of precise gear-based controls. This digitally-minded camera is based upon the Ultima foundation and features an 11.8"-long monorail and wide-angle bag bellows to support the use of wide-angle lenses and medium format digital backs. Yaw-free variable-axis tilt and swing movements enable quick setup with a minimized need for re-composing and a symmetrical design with zero-position detents also contribute to an intuitive and fast working method. Dual-range focusing furthers this efficiency along with clearly demarcated focusing, movements, and depth of field scales. Constructed from aluminum alloy, yet taking on a portable form factor, the Ultima 45D is at home in both the studio as well as on location.
Both front and rear standards offer a full range of camera movements:
Tilt: +/- 20°
Swing: +/- 30°
Rise/Fall: +/- 20mm
Shift: +/- 25mm
The Ultima system is comprised of a rigid base structure, monorail, and tripod mounting block, along with highly configurable front and rear standards, for ensured precision and extensive control.
Geared rise/fall, lateral shift, swing, and tilt movements offer a high degree of precision and self-locking swing and tilt mechanisms ensure greater stability.
Benefitting working with a variety of digital backs, variable focal plane control permits adjusting of tilt and swing axis points to match the different sensor sizes of various digital backs.
Both the front and rear standard incorporate safety locks to prevent accidental openings in order to protect lenses and digital backs.
Dual-range focusing control offers both coarse and fine-tuned focusing methods for greater control.
The rear standard incorporates a depth of field scale for quickly checking where the field of focus begins and ends without having to stop-down the lens prior to exposure.
Utilizing a virtual pivot design, yaw-free variable-axis tilts and swings can be utilized for easier and faster composition and focusing when employing movements.
A symmetrical design on both standards, along with zero-position detents, help to expedite setting up and positioning the camera.
Both standards incorporate spirit levels for maintaining consistently level horizons and plumb verticals.
A 11.8"-long monorail and removable wide-angle bag bellows permits working with lenses as wide as 47mm without the use of recessed lens boards.
An aluminum alloy body construction is both durable and portable for use in the studio as well as on location.
Modular System and Digital Interface Options
Designed within a modular system, the 45D utilizes the central components of all Ultima-series cameras and distinguishes itself through the ability to accept a wide variety of digital back interface plates. Three distinct types of adapter plate styles are available: direct adapter plates for live view focusing and composition; sliding backs for non-live view/ground glass focusing; and multi-step backs for creating stitched imagery.
This camera is comprised of the Ultima base foundation, an 11.8"-long monorail, a wide-angle bag bellows, and both front and rear standards.
