    New Cambo Technical Cameras Product Updates

    Hello everyone I am here in Atlanta at Capture Integration at Cambo demo days along with Rene Rook from Cambo. Today a GetDPI exclusive announcement of a new compendium hood and a new Iphone viewfinder holder. These are new products in current production and Iphone holders in route to Capture Integration. Timing for the new hood is roughly 4 weeks out for delivery to customers. The new hoods will will work with all lenses from the 23mm to 150mm and beyond. The hoods and Iphone have unique attachments to the various Cambo tech cam models and also to any tech cam with a hot shoe attached as well. On the Anniversary Edition there are two screws on either side of the hot shoe which on that model a special adapter is provided that goes right over the hot shoe itself plus another adapter to that which will add a hot shoe on top of it also.


    Shown here is a prototype of the hood which a couple minor adjustments are being applied as we report this announcement. So production models will be slightly different.

    Here are a couple shots of the hood which BTW rotates to both landscape and portrait modes.

    Also announced today is the new Iphone viewfinder. Which can attach via hot shoe or special adapter over the hot shoe. So this unit can fit any supplied hot shoe camera. A unique feature is a simple press button release for landscape mode to portrait mode.

    Shown in these images is a .65 Schneider kit lens which is sold separately. Also separately is the viewfinder software for the Iphone which can be download through the Apple App. Store

    Will the hood fit the older WRS's? Your write-up makes it seem that these will only fit the AE. Also just to be clear - there's a hot shoe on top of the hood attachment for the viewfinder?

    Yes it will. As you can see from the photos above, the AE utilizes a step up adapter that fits into existing holes on the top side of the AE camera. This adapter creates a platform over the cold shoe to mount the Lens Shade or iPhone Holder. The WRS does not possess these holes. As a result, there is a similar adapter (seen below) that fits into the cold shoe of the WRS itself (it could also be used optionally with the AE). The adapter for the Lens Shade and iPhone Holder will then fit into that platform.

    The Lens Shade is only a limited option for the WDS. While there is the ability to insert the step up adapter into the cold shoe of the WDS, since the lens performs the rise and fall, there are limits as to when one could use the Lens Shade with the WDS. The iPhone Holder has no such limitations.

    Re: New Cambo Technical Cameras Product Updates

    Does it matter whether cameras are listed? The ALPA app lists lenses and backs, and lets you save your choices.

    If you have a Digitar 72 and an IQ 160, for example, what difference does it make how they're attached to each other?

    Exactly I just used Alpa Max for my Cambo my back name and put in the real lenses I have. Not sure of all the apps out there that are like that.

    Guy,
    The lens shade looks very interesting! How is the rotation? Does it have stops every 90 degrees or does it spin freely?

    Re: New Cambo Technical Cameras Product Updates

    It has indents at landscape and portrait but rotates freely so you can stop anywhere you need. Absolute need for Rodenstock 23 we found huge flare spot testing that lens without shade. Steve Hendrix will post a thread on this issue. But you can get a nasty flare spot on that lense regardless of mount but the shade does eliminate it.

    not so nice to see they copied so much of my I-phone holder design; surprised they didn't label it the "clam"

    Well jlm,
    I was kinda wondering if they had colaborated with you.

    yours is still the superior design with the tilt adjustment.

    Less hope that the iPhone 5 (Sept/Oct 2012) specs does NOT change where the lens is located...

    Re: New Cambo Technical Cameras Product Updates

    I've noticed that this compendium also works with wide angle lenses.
    So it will work with my Rodie 32mm.
    But is it possible to use Lee filters in the compendium filter holder when using it with the 32mm ?
    I mean if it is needed to put the lens inside the compendium and retract it at max to not get it in the image (especially when stitching), then it won't be possible to place a filter in the compendium holder anymore (hope I explain it clearly).

    Re: New Cambo Technical Cameras Product Updates

    You can use the compendium with the 32. However, you can't use Lee filters. the lens is protruding significantly into it.
