This portable, multiformat camera system is the product of Cambo's 60-plus years of camera design experience. A favorite among architectural and landscape photographers for decades, the Cambo Wide's newest model represents the latest generation of this popular style and incorporates many exciting innovations.
This compact 4x5 camera accepts a variety of wide angle Schneider lenses and now provides double shift movements, rise-and-fall and lateral shifts. Compared to other large format cameras, the Cambo Wide DS is extremely compact, portable and easy to operate. In addition to accepting 4x5 sheet film holders, the Wide DS takes 120 roll film holders, which open up your shooting options to 6x4.5, 6x7, 6x9 and 6x12cm formats. A new, optional rotating back makes it easy to switch formats from horizontal to vertical.
For plenty of wide angle versatility, the Wide DS system offers a choice of four different focal length Schneider lenses, each with its own coverage characteristics. The Wide DS also accepts a wide variety of Cambo accessories.
The Cambo Wide DS is made of a high-quality aluminum alloy for maximum stability, smooth and precise movements and lightweight portability. All movements are calibrated for precise repeatability and referencing. The convenient hand grip is made of handsome wood with rounded corners for a secure and safe grip and includes a built-in cable release. Three spirit levels make it easy to level the camera for horizontal and vertical alignment. Aluminum parts are either anodized to protect against corrosion or patined with a black metallic paint for protection from the elements.
Requires fixed back with 38mm lens panel or rotating back with 47mm lens panel and above.
