This Actus is a special version dedicated to Repro applications and Flat Art reproduction. The front standard is permanently fixed in a secured parallel alignment without possibilities for swing or tilts, in order to assure the best parallel planes between lens and capture medium. Because the Actus is suitable for DSLR and Mirrorless camera bodies and has interchangeable bayonets for both, it’s the ideal choice for using the high resolution versions of these Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon and Sony bodies.
The quickly interchangeble lens plates allow for using the best applicable optics for the working situation, considering the magnification, distance, size and resolution requirements. As the shutter system is incorporated into the camera body, the optics on the lens panel only need to have a manual aperture.
The parallel shift possibilities of the rear standard will serve you in 2 ways:
The Cambo WRS/WRC version for the archival industry. The WRC-400 REPRO is the slim but rigid connection between digital backs and lenses optimized for reproduction work.
Its integrated shift movements simplify framing. The solid body guarantees perfect alignment of optics and sensor.
Lenspanels can be designed for a precise magnification ratio with a lens of choice – Rodenstock or (legacy) Schneider – in combination with focusing over a helical mount.
Most suitable lenses are available in the Phase One X-Shutter or Aperture Mount. The latter is for use with the digital back’s integrated Electronic Shutter, which eliminates all moving parts and guarantees longevity.
The system can be completed with rear spacers to optimize for the required magnification ratio. Since Cambo manufactures helical focusing mounts in-house they are able to offer tailor-made solutions if needed. The WRC-400 Repro version comes with a special holder for the Rodenstock or Schneider USB controller. This unit can be mounted on one of the 4 sides by choice.
