    Cambo Actus + Digitar 47mm + GFX?

    When using the Digitar 47 on an Actus/Sony combination front and rear standards are already pretty close together. There isn't enough clearance to make this work with a GFX.

    Nikkor 19mm PC-E and Cambo Actus - beware!

    "One might expect the plate to be used with the 19, 45 and 24 F-mount PC-E Nikkors for example? " Hardly. More on that later. An adapter like this may be a valid choice when you're using an APS-C or m43 camera. With those smaller sensors even a cheap lens like a Tokina 3.5/17 will enable some...

    Shooting roll film with Cambo WRS

    WDS was initially a 4x5 camera and later models were optimised for digital. So basically two versions. If Gu has a WRS-1200 and lens panels belonging to this - which is what I understood - the system is for use with a DB. Adding the WRS-1068 enables shooting roll film. Film plane will be in...

    Black reference with lens shade / compendium on a Rodenstock Aperture Mount lens

    New Digital Back for Cambo Actus G?

    The Nikon Z is the mirrorless with the shortest flange-focal distance. When using an L-mount camera instead, front and rear standards will be a few mm closer together when focussed at infinity. Out of curiosity: How are you stopping down the Nikkor?

    Questions for Cambo Actus owners

    " I believe the Actus Pentax 645 mount board is for the "normal" Pentax lenses that have aperture. " The Pentax 645 lens board for the Actus has its own lever to enable aperture settings when using lenses without aperture ring. And there is the option to shoot wider than the aforementioned 25mm...

    How to connect 4x5 to 907x

    The 907x is not needed here. The CFV can be attached directly to the Graflock style back by means of a suitable adapter. Looks like this:

    Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    We've got a distributor in Switzerland. They'll be happy to take care of it. Graphicart is in Bern and Zurich.

    Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    Exactly. The adapter in this set up uses the Hasselblad lens' leaf shutter. So synchronising to the back is required.

    Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    As FloatingLens mentioned, you can leave out the 907x. The CFV back can be used directly at a tech or view camera. If you own V-lenses, this may offer you the amount of rise and fall you're looking for.

    Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    Basically I gave a step-by-step description in my first reply. It's easier to understand, if you've got a Copal shutter in front of you. In case you're going to work with the ES (which has its limitations, depending on the subject): -The big black lever opens the shutter -The shutter remains...

    Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    How this would be when using the ES is something the Hasselblad reps should be able to explain. When working with a Copal or other mechanical shutter there's no electronic connection between camera and back; the cable is just there to sync. As far as I know, you'll need a separate meter or just...

    Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    Like any other new digital back, the CFV will probably come with a cable that enables you to connect the back to the Copal shutter's X-contact. This synchronises back and shutter. Open the Copal shutter and the aperture to do your framing and camera adjustments. Stop down and close the lens...

    Is there much difference between a WDS and a WRS?

    The R in WRS stands for Rear. The WRS shifts the back, not the lens. Therefore it's a better camera for stitiching.
