The Cambo ACTUS-DB is a new technology camera system, evolved from the ACTUS series for mirrorless cameras and DSLR’s. It is specifically targeted at the use of Digital Backs from Hasselblad, Mamiya-Leaf and PhaseOne. It is built from many parts also used in the ACTUS, thus keeping sizes and weights as minimal as possible.

Mirrorless system camera bodies can be used as digital back, while the Cambo ACTUS will function as tilt-shift and swing adapter with view camera movements for each lens that is being used with this combination. This design offers advantages over the X2 platform. The Cambo ACTUS has been designed to give maximum functionality with minimal dimensions to support portability at ease. The Cambo ACTUS is small and lightweight and fits easily in a small case.

ACB-0sThis lensplate allows you to mount lenses fitted with a copal-0 shutter or NK-0 aperture mount in combination with the ACTUS view camera. The practical use of lenses may be limited to those that can move freely in front of the bayonet of the used camera body. Shorter focal lengths may require the special ACB-310 rear standard with non-rotating bayonet.
ACB-01sThis lensplate allows you to mount lenses fitted with a copal-1 shutter or NK-1 aperture mount in combination with the ACTUS view camera. The practical use of lenses may be limited to those that can move freely in front of the bayonet of the used camera body. Shorter focal lengths may require the special ACB-310 rear standard with non-rotating bayonet.

SLW-80-sThis adapter will host a digital back with a Hasselblad-V interface. The digital back needs to be triggered externally, no internal contacts available.

SLW-81-sThis adapter will host a digital back with a Leaf Afi or Sinar HY6 interface. The digital back needs to be triggered externally, no internal contacts available. The SLW-81 comes with a lock protection.
SLW-83_sThis adapter will host a digital back with a PhaseOne IQ3 series interface. The digital back needs to be triggered externally, no internal contacts available.
SLW-87-sThis adapter will host a digital back with a Contax 645 interface. The digital back needs to be triggered externally, no internal contacts available.
SLW-88-sThis adapter will host a digital back with a Mamiya 645 AFd interface. The digital back needs to be triggered externally, no internal contacts available.
SLW-89-sThis adapter will host a digital back with a Hasselblad H1 interface. The digital back needs to be triggered externally, no internal contacts available.

WDS-619-02_newThe WDS-619 Groundglass Frame mounts instead of any SLW-mount in Portrait or Landscape mode. The ground glass has marks for the current CCD sizes (40×54 /36×56 / 36×48 /33×44 mm) and includes a fresnel lens. It can be expanded with the WDS-616 Flexible Focussing Hood or the new WDS-630 Shiftable Focussing Loupe (3x).
ACDB-950This conversion set allows you to mount a digital back compatible rear standard to your existing Actus camera body suited for mirrorless and DSLR cameras.

The set consists of:

  • Rear standard for ACTUS-DB
  • Height adjuster for front standard
  • Standard bellows for ACTUS-DB

You will need to add your choice of SLW-Adapter for mounting the digital back in case you don’t have that already.

ACDB-250Bellows to be used with the ACTUS-DB, with an extension of 150mm. This standard bellows is already included in the ACTUS-DB.
ACDB-252Bellows to be used optionally with the ACTUS-DB, with an extension of 50mm (one fold).
ACDB-254Bellows to be used optionally with the ACTUS-DB, with a longer extension of 250mm, supporting the AC-330 monorail 300mm.
AC-315sThe Standard Monorail for the ACTUS camera system is already premounted in the ACTUS as well as the ACTUS-DB, but can be replaced with a longer monorail by choice.
AC-330sThe Longer Monorail for the ACTUS camera system can optionally be mounted to the ACTUS as well as the ACTUS-DB. The use of a longer bellows ACDB-254 is needed when the total length of the monorail will be used.
AC-345sThe Macro Monorail for the ACTUS camera system can optionally be mounted to the ACTUS as well as the ACTUS-DB. The use of a Macro bellows ACDB-256 (length can be specified) is needed when the total length of the monorail will be used.
ACB-ALPsThis lensplate allows you to mount lenses fitted on an ALPA lens panel, in combination with the ACTUS-DB view camera. The finish of the ACB-ALP plate matches the ACTUS-DB version. The useability of the ACB-ALP is depending on the total setup for setting at infinity and movements. Best option is the short barrel 34mm version, second best option the short barrel 17mm version.
ACT-WRSsThis lensplate allows you to mount lenses fitted on a Cambo WRS lens panel, in combination with the ACTUS-DB view camera. The finish of the ACB-WRS plate matches the ACTUS-DB version. The useability of the ACB-WRS is depending on the total setup for setting at infinity. Best option is the short barrel versions of the 90, 120 and 150mm will have full movements on the Actus-DB, while the normal lens WRS-panels will mount but not focus at infinity.
