    Re: Cambo Actus and CFV-50c

    courtesy of Lance at Digital Transitions, i am working on the Arca adapter right now. naturally, they use a totally different mounting scheme; not a bayonet, not clips, but interrupted internal threads, with an indexed start of pitch.

    Yes, Arca will be a bit difficult due to the threaded bayonet mount, which is similar in design to how a diving helmet attaches.

    Acra sells a plate for the M2, and or DSLR2, which has these threads. It ships with the DSLR2 configuration, and something very similar to what will come with the Universalis. I am not sure if Arca sells just the plate however, but here is a picture of it. You can see that it fits into a recessed mount on the front part of the DSLR2.

    Keep in mind that - unlike the Alpa and Cambo mounted lenses for their technical cameras - due to the helical focus ring not being part of the lens assembly, the lenses in Arca Swiss R bayonet can simple be unscrewed and connected to a standard Cambo 0 Lensboard for the Actus.

    But if John designs an Arca R Bayonet board for the Cambo Actus, that will provide some nice convenience.

    That was my point on a different thread. If I want to use both RM3di & Actus DB, then John's board will be very useful. However, If I switch from RM3di to Actus DB, then re-mounting to standard Cambo 0 Lensboard is not expensive, $159 per lens + $20 tool kit.

    We have lot to discuss and explore in Tahoe in couple of weeks.

    Re: Cambo Actus and CFV-50c

    Oh yes ... Alpa guys too. The Actus DB with a CMOS back is a game changer. I won't be swapping my Alpa but the idea of adding the Actus DB and some native lenses on lens boards does sound interesting.

    Re: Cambo Actus and CFV-50c

    diving helmet method is a pia. turns out they use a .6mm thread. in my shop i have thread mills for .5mm and .75mm, and have roughed out the fit and the overall part, but the final threading will have to wait until i can get the .6mm insert.

    i may disregard the thread solution entirely and use a clip similar to the other methods. holding the lens itself would be fine, but any arca extenders fitted to the lens that also use the threads would not fit my board.

    Jim how are you mounting the hood to the 32. Do you have the CF Installed and mounting to the CF or are you attaching to the lens itself?

    Many thanks

    Re: Cambo Actus and CFV-50c

    quick shots of the Lee setup on the 32mm:thicker

    the lee adapter is not the WA type, so it pushes things forward and i have slots for two 4mm filters, all moving the polarizer forward (it screw mounts to the Lee). no center filter is used and my back is a crop back

    Re: Cambo Actus and CFV-50c

    I'll bringing my actus/CFV50c rig to the Tahoe get together next week. also my adapters.

    meaning if you want to try some things out:
    Cambo WRS, Alpa and Arca R lenses will mount to the Actus, using my CFV 50 back.

    it also happens that the rear Actus standard will accept the Cambo WRS back adapter (mine adapts to hasselblad V) so anyone using the WRS (like Don) who want to pop his IQ-280 on can try that, remembering that you need live view, or maybe a ground glass

    Re: Cambo Actus and CFV-50c

    I was wondering whether it was feasible to make a rear standard that would take an Alpa body mount? Why would you want that? Well, I have an Alpa film back plus it would be nice to leave the Alpa adapter on my IQ150 vs using the Cambo plate.

    Yes, you just need the Hasselblad V Cambo Actus lens board.

    ACB-HA Cambo Lensplate with Hasselblad bayonet BLACK finish
    ACT-HA Cambo Lensplate with Hasselblad bayonet TITANIUM finish

    And also these too:

    ACB-RZ Cambo Lensplate with Mamiya RB-RZ bayonet BLACK finish
    ACT-RZ Cambo Lensplate with Mamiya RB-RZ bayonet TITANIUM finish
    ACB-39 Cambo Lensplate with m39 threading BLACK finish
    ACB-39 Cambo Lensplate with m39 threadingTITANIUM finish

    Lets us know if we can help.

    The Actus for using with a digital back will not work since these Hasselblad V lens shutters are triggered and recocked by the camera. You need an adapter that has the ability to engage with the lens and providing the slot for triggering the shutter. The lens by itself does not have the slot for triggering nor the recock mechanism. Think of the Hasselblad Flexbody mechanism. If you plan to use these Hasselblad V lens on the Actus with the Sony A7 series camera then it will work since you will not use the lens shutter but instead the focal plane curtain shutter from the Sony and other cameras with built in shutter.

    Re: Cambo Actus and CFV-50c

    This is the kind of adapter you will need in order to make the Hasselblad V lens to work with the Actus and the digital back. Notice they took a page out of the Hasselblad Flexbody and put it into the adapter.
