Cambo SC-2 overview

  • 1Description

Traditional yet versatile, Cambo's SC-2 Basic is a 4 x 5" monorail-style view camera that affords a full range of camera movements along with a simple interface for precise control. Based upon a 21.3"-long indexed monorail, this camera includes a standard length bellows, with a maximum draw of 18.9", to accommodate working with a variety of focal lengths and subject types. 4.7" of rise and fall, 2" of shift, and 30° of tilt and swing enable an extensive amount of perspective and focus correction, which is aided by dual-axis spirit levels on both the front and rear standards. Each of the movements are set upon zero-reference scales for repeatable precision, and large, knurled locking knobs and a friction focusing mechanism further contribute to intuitive handling. Reminiscent of historical 4 x 5" view cameras, but refined for greater accessibility and precision, the SC-2 Basic is a straight-forward camera well-suited for both studio and field applications.

Complementing the range of movements and controls afforded by the simple interface is a robust construction comprising of an all-metal monorail, standards, and controls. The SC-2 Basic includes both the C-6 Standard Bellows as well as the C-168 International 4 x 5" Ground Glass Back, which features a rotating design and accepts all Graflok-type accessories. Additionally, this camera fits within a modular system of a variety of accessories, which enable you to pair optional components, such as extended bellows, monorails, and more, to better suit different individual shooting applications.

Conventional 4 x 5" monorail view camera affords a full range of camera movements for precise control of focusing and perspective movements.
Set on a 21.3"-long monorail, the included standard length bellows permits working with an array of different focal lengths, subject sizes, and working distances.
Both front and rear standards have full rise/fall, lateral shift, tilt, and swing movements, each of which is complemented by zero-reference scales for repeatable accuracy.
Both standards incorporate independent dual-axis spirit levels for maintaining consistently level horizons and plumb verticals.
A quick release mounting block is fitted to the monorail and permits easy attachment to tripods.
The monorail, both standards, and all camera controls are constructed from metal for enhanced durability and accuracy.
A friction focusing method enables fast focus setting and large, knurled locking rings enable precise tuning and setting of camera movements.
The C-6 Normal Bellows and C-168 International 4 x 5" Ground Glass Back are both included. Additionally, the SC-2 Basic is designed within a modular system and is compatible with a wide array of other optional accessories.
