Cambo Ultima-45 overview

  • 1Description

Residing within an extensively modular system, the Cambo Ultima 45 is a 4 x 5" view camera well-suited to both film and digital capture using Graflok-style film holders or backs. Capable of accepting a wide variety of film, digital, or scanning backs, 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 view camera is based upon the Ultima foundation and features a 17.7"-long two-piece monorail and pleated bellows to enable working with a wide range of different focal lengths. 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 45 is at home in both the studio as well as on location.

Camera Movements
Both front and rear standards offer a full range of camera movements:
  • Tilt: +/- 20°
  • Swing: +/- 30°
  • Rise/Fall: +/- 20mm
  • Shift: +/- 25mm
Camera Features
  • 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 film formats, variable focal plane control permits adjusting of tilt and swing axis points to match different capture area dimensions.
  • Both the front and rear standard incorporate safety locks to prevent accidental openings in order to protect lenses and film 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 split monorail totaling 17.7" in length and a removable pleated bellows enable close focusing capabilities with a wide range of focal lengths.
  • An aluminum alloy body construction is both durable and portable for use in the studio as well as on location.
Modular System and Interface Options
Designed within a modular system, the Ultima 45 utilizes the central components of all Ultima-series cameras and distinguishes itself through the ability to accept both 4 x 5" sheet film as well as digital backs. The included UL-168 Ground Glass Back, which includes a ground glass for focusing and composition, accepts standard Graflok-type film holders and accessories, as well as most 4 x 5" scanning backs. Additional interfaces are available for attaching medium format digital backs.

This camera is comprised of the Ultima base foundation, a 17.7"-long split monorail, a pleated bellows, adjustable tripod mount, ground glass back, and both front and rear standards.
