Using the Cambo Loupe – Peter Jordan-Turner

Peter Jordan-Turner of PJT Photoservices, uses the Cambo CS loupe with a Nikon DSLR camera system.

“Recently I was commissioned to work for Trovit who install cleanroom surfaces, in this case in a new hospital theatre suite in Crewe.”

Cambo Loupe PJT1

“One objective of the shoot was to illustrate the almost seamless joints in wall and floor materials. As they are mostly white-on-white they are really hard to focus and frame correctly, so the loupe was invaluable today in ensuring the correct focus point and checking depth of field.”

“Because the optics is high quality Schneider Kreuznach glass, with a magnification of 3x, its very easy to identify tiny dirt and surface marks.  This means I’ll spend less time with the Photoshop clone tool later on.”

Thanks for the feedback Peter, its good to see you in action and hear the advantages of using the Cambo CS-Loupe. Most of the time we only think about checking focus with a loupe, your points are useful to know about. Saving valuable time editing in Photoshop is always a bonus!

The Photography Show, NEC, Birmingham UK – Thank you for visiting us!

Thank you for visiting us at The Photography Show. We’re recovering from hoarse voices! As you may already know I do like to talk – and it was great opportunity to see so many of our existing customers and the chance to chat to some new one’s.

CamboStand

We ran some specials during the show and if you would like an overview of these please send me an email and I will post them directly. These are strictly for the UK and are limited between 2-4 weeks after the show.

There was a lot of interest in the new Wide RS600 camera, I expect this will be a hit with many customers that require an architectural camera with a built-in sliding back. It was another success for the Cambo Wide series cameras.

During the show Jonathan Taylor of Cloud9 launched his Cuba Car book and as you can see he produced some fantastic images – captured using the Cambo Wide RS5005 – we will add another blog soon about Jonathan’s work.

We will publish the winners of the Cambo CS loupes – the hat is pretty full, the names will be picked by the end of this week – sign up to the blog and see if you’re a winner!

New Cambo Wide RS600 camera system at The Photography Show, NEC, UK

Cambo Fotografische BV introduces the Wide RS600 camera at The Photography Show, NEC, Birmingham 4th March 2014.

The Wides RS600 is designed for architectural and landscape photographers that wish to use a digital back without removing and exchanging it with the focussing screen, enabling the photographer to compose, focus, slide the digital back in place and shoot immediately.

WRS-600_01

Manufactured from high grade aerospace aluminium, the camera platform is one piece unit which prevents any distortion as the camera plane is parallel and only the back is designed to shift, rise and fall. Horizontal shift 40mm, Vertical shift 60mm, Rise 40mm and Fall 20mm.

WRS-600_02

The variable locking mechanism is used to stitch images from all digital back sensors in the horizontal or vertical position.

WRS-600_03

The lenses from the Wide DS and Wide RS range of cameras are compatible with the RS600. For Tilt and Swing functionality, this is achieved by using the Cambo digital lenses with Schneider and Rodenstock optics. The T/S range have 5 degrees of Tilt and Swing.

The RS600 accepts the Cambo SLW digital camera back adapter plates for Leaf, Phase One and Hasselblad.

The CS loupe with Schneider optics is the ideal focussing aid when using a digital back without live view. The loupe kit attaches to the focussing screen, it can be positioned in each corner to check movement and sharpness. The kit is available for the RS600 and the Wide Camera range.

The Wide RS600 is available from Cambo BV now. The price is £4,650.00 excluding VAT €5,475.00 excluding Taxes.
