    But i have never seen a distance "barrel" for a replacement of the shutter..?!?

    Hi mueller,

    The distance from front lens element to the rear lens element (f) is fixed.
    The shutter is the part of the lens ,we also can see inside which have no empty spaces.

    And thank you to Rod information have wake me up to found the news Rodens information.
    the news Rodens 32 HR can be work with the Sory A7
    As the Flange focus length (d=69.2) – Flange to lens end (e=46.9)
    The space from (Rodens32) Flange lens end to Sony flange at the infinity = 69.2-46.9-18= 4.3 mm

    Looks really interesting. Are you able to keep the sensor free of dust spots when attached to the bellows?
    Thanks

    Hoping design of Cambo Actus can accommodate rumored Sony and Fuji mirror-less medium format cameras,
    should they come to pass.

    Cool that the dovetail is Arca-compatible.

    @Steve Hendrix

    If you have any pull with the folks at Cambo,
    I would love for there to be 1/4-20 threads wherever possible on the Actus
    allowing for easy attachment of accessories (e.g. flag lens from flare; mount larger 5" or 7" monitor, etc.)

    like it is in the filmmaking world where everything from matte boxes to camera cages to fluid heads have "cheese".

    I see an RZ67 lens up front in one of Cambo's product shots.

    Does the RB/RZ lens board vignette the image circle?

    'Cos I'm thinking - why not have a rear camera plate in Mamiya/Phase 645 bayonet mount? On this rig, you'd have loads of back focus clearance for that camera (63.3 mm) in conjunction with those lenses (105mm RZ, 112mm RB). They would also be fine with the Contax 645 (64 mm) and Pentax 645D/Z (70.87 mm).

    Who's up for tilt-shift with all RB/RZ lenses on your 645 MFD cameras?

    What about a variant where you can mount a digital back and use various lenses like for instance RZ lenses.

    Billy - I will pass along. Some possible limitations for the ability to insert these, based on the current design, but wherever possible, I agree, it would be handy.

    Thinking further...it appears that I just invented the Cambo X2-PRO

    This new system is a bit more universal though. I'd be looking for one system with M645, Canon EOS and Fuji X mounts on the camera side and M645 and RB/RZ mounts on the lens side.

    Yes! I mean, why not? They've already got 5 out of my 6 desired connectors. Just needs that one more - M645 camera bayonet option. It would put serious claws on this queer hybrid beast!

    Re: New - Cambo Actus View Camera for Sony A7

    Just a little thought. This could be a very nice system for interiors/architecture photographers that can not invest 40K on a new DB and a tech camera. Most of the times a 36MP (Sony) sensor hass enough resolution for the 95% of the clients (at least mine) BUT if i can not shift with wide angle lenses, as TORGER explained in detail, what is the benefit?
    It is small = portability = interiors/architecture/locations/landscape…
    I don't think it was designed with a product/still life studio photographer in mind as user.
    If this "system" could work properly (no problems with color stability, sharpness…) using SK Digitar & Rodenstock HR lenses (with shifting and tilting of course) I will buy it immediately BUT Torger explained well that it doesn't. I am not an expert in this field, but i imagine you will have the same problem using the Mamiya/Phaseone lenses, designed for DB with CCD sensor.
    Yes, i could use the Canon TS lenses instead, designed for CMOS sensor, but why, i would keep using them on my Canon bodies.

    This is of course already possible with the existing Cambo X2 Pro.

    https://captureintegration.com/cambo/cambo-x-2-pro/


    The new Actus camera will not be able to accommodate a Mamiya 645 body (nor a Nikon D4/Canon 1DS) either (or D800/5D-MK III if you include the extra battery grip). However, sizes up to D800/5D-MK III can accommodate.

    Yup, as I recalled moments after my first post:

    > Thinking further...it appears that I just invented the Cambo X2-PRO

    It's a swell idea, but Cambo beat me to it!

    Ray, you should look at this:

    Novoflex - Tilt-/Shift Bellows

    It has all kinds of camera and lens adapters.

    Thanks, Will. That's a nice alternative - has the M645 camera option - but no RB/RZ lens mount, alas. Short of DIY-hacking an RB lens mount onto an old view camera lens board, it seems that Cambo (X2-Pro) and Hartblei are the only two who can connect those lenses to the M645/645AFD cameras. [Did Hartblei ever produce their first run of adapters? The webpage says "the adapters will be delivered in 2012"]

    I have trying to fit RZ 67 lenses to my Pentax 645D - as of a couple days ago Stefan indicated that the adapter is still work in progress. They are having trouble locating a helicoil for the focus mount.

    Hi Dnve,
    Yes you are right. I need the aperture but not the shutter time... Ok ...hmm
