Cambo is expanding the ACTUS series with an optional BASE TILT Function. Often our more experienced view camera users ask how to get the most movements out of the Actus system. Previously we would have recommended the Actus XL for those who needed more control, but that option resulted in a much larger camera system. We are happy to announce that these movements are now achievable on a standard Actus for those who need them.

Cambo has designed a tilting unit that can be mounted between the existing standard and the monorail. The tilt unit offers up to 15 degrees of forward and backward tilt, in increments of 5 degrees, while keeping both standards exactly parallel.

Once the desired amount of tilt has been achieved these adaptors lock into place to stop any unintended movements.

Customers have three different options to choose from when wanting to add these movements:

 

AC-371  – Rear Base Tilt:

The AC-371 kit consists of a rear base tilt unit and a dedicated spacer under the front assembly to match the correct height change.
The rear base unit can be set each 5 degrees up-to 15 degrees to each side. The lock is applied in a grid pattern, so the standard is locked into position.
Additional weight:          0,26 kg
Additional height:          20 mm
Additional focus draw: 42 mm
Rear base tilt:        +15 / -15 degrees
Increments:        each 5 degrees.

AC-373 Dual Base Tilt:   

AC-373 adds an extra base tilt adjustment to your Actus camera’s front and rear standards. The rear base tilt unit mounts between the rear standard focusing unit and the monorail, and in addition to the added tilt allows for an extra layer of sliding focus too.
The front base tilt unit mounts with 4 screws between the front standard and the monorail.
AC-373 gives you additional freedom of movements in applying technical camera settings. next to that, you can set indirect vertical movements by applying base tilt to both standard, increasing more vertical shift when your optics allow for that. The AC-373 kit consists of a rear base tilt unit and a front base tilt unit under the front assembly to match the correct height change
Additional weight:          0,28 kg
Additional height:          20 mm
Additional focus draw: 42 mm
Rear base tilt:        +15 / -15 degrees
Front base tilt:        +15 / -15 degrees
Increments:        each 5 degrees.

 

AC-375 Full Base Tilt:    

AC-375 adds an extra base tilt adjustment to your Actus camera’s front and rear standards, as well as to the Tripod Mount.

The rear base tilt unit mounts between the rear standard focussing unit and the monorail, and makes an extra layer of sliding focus too.
The front base tilt unit mounts with 4 screws between the front standard and the monorail.
The tripod base tilt unit mounts to the bottom of the monorail and can slide along the full monorail length.
AC-375 gives you additional freedom of movements in applying technical camera settings. Next to that, you can set indirect vertical movements by applying base tilt to both standard, increasing more vertical shift when your optics allow for that. By simultaneously applying tilt to the tripod mount, you can keep your standards parallel and perpendicular with an inclined monorail. Ideal for yaw-free swing applications.
Additional weight AC-375:             0,48 kg
Additional height front and rear : 20 mm
Additional height tripod mount:  35 mm
Additional focus draw rear unit:    42 mm
Rear base tilt:        +15 / -15 degrees
Front base tilt:        +15 / -15 degrees
Tripod base tilt:        +15 / -15 degrees
Increments:        each 5 degrees.
