Anyone using the Cambo Wide DS ?? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Any feedback on the new version of the cambo wide. It is a multiformat 4x5, 6x12cm, 6x9cm system with several lenses avail.

The back can rotate horizontal/vertical.

Hi Jesse, I have the old cambo wide with 47xl and 150mm lenses. I have seen the DS version and it looks great. Its main advantage is its simultaneous dual shift ie ability to move diagonally. However, with the 47xl lens it is pretty useless because of the optical limitation. So it might be more useful with lesser wide lens/es. I was hoping that the DS mechanism is on the panel so I can buy just the new lens/panel and use my old body but not to be........
