Cambo introduces ACTUS for Mirrorless and DSLR camera systems

Cambo Fotografische BV has introduced the Cambo ACTUS for Mirrorless and DSLR camera systems. The Cambo Actus is a new technology camera system designed for mirrorless cameras, such as the Sony Alpha 7 series & Fuji- X available for Canon & Nikon DSLR's.

It combines traditional view camera techniques with the latest capture technology. Using view camera movement the photographer will be able to be more versatile, be more creative and achieve professional results much faster than before.

Mirrorless system camera bodies can be used as a digital back, while the Cambo ACTUS will function as a tilt-shift and swing adapter with view camera movements for each lens. The Cambo ACTUS has been designed to give maximum functionality with minimal dimensions to support portability with ease. The Cambo ACTUS is small and lightweight and fits easily into a case.
