SOLD OUT! Cambo Panasonic GH-4 Eyecup

The eyecup has sold so well we have already ran out of stock!!

Cambo Panasonic GH4 Eyecup

Spec wearers!

I read recently that anyone wearing spectacles have a problem using an eyecup.. fear not the cup is extremely flexible and I have used the same type of flexible material on the Cambo loupe. My specs are frameless so are more delicate than framed – this eyecup works!

The eyecup is soft and very flexible fitting comfortably for left or right eye viewing. I really like this eyecup as I can use it wearing my spectacles! Priced at €30.00 / £29.00 +TAX / VAT and post.

Availability

We will have stock during the second week of August. Keep ordering and we will send them out as soon as they are available.

Cambo ACTUS – Now in the UK!

The Cambo ACTUS has arrived…

Just as we finished blogging yesterday there was a parcel delivery. The box felt far too light to contain a camera system, to our surprise it contained the ACTUS with all of its accessories.

Cambo Actus Box

The box is huge compared to the size of the camera…

Size Matters…

If you are planning to use your camera system outdoors then you need your kit to be as light as possible. The ACTUS is small and of course the smaller the platform the lighter the camera, weighing in at only 1000g. The following shot shows the front of the ACTUS where the lens mount fits…

Here you can see the ACTUS from the rear where the camera body will be mounted…

To show you the difference in size here is a comparison with the Ultima. Of course these are two different types of cameras as the Ultima is available in 3 modular versions; DSLR, 23 and 45, but its a good indicator of how small the ACTUS is… (by the way we are showing the Ultima 23)

More to follow soon…

Cambo ACTUS – New Camera Launch

 

Cambo Fotografische BV introduces the Cambo ACTUS for Mirrorless and DSLR camera systems.

The Cambo ACTUS is a new technology camera system designed for mirror less cameras, such as the Sony Alpha 7 series & Fuji-X and available for Canon & Nikon DSLR’s.
It combines traditional view camera techniques with the latest capture technology.
Using view camera movement the photographer will be able to be more versatile, be more creative and achieve professional results much faster than before.

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

Cambo Loupe for the Sony Alpha 7 Camera

It’s the age of the mirror less cameras and the Sony Alpha 7/R is a great piece of kit for stills and video shoots. This camera system is ‘Ultra Compact’ and although lightweight reminds me of my first 35mm SLR, the feel of the camera is solid and so small!

As with all DSLR systems Cambo has a loupe for the Sony A7 and 7R.

If you’ve seen the Cambo loupe you will already know about the 3x Schneider lens, the soft eyecup and clip on frame function.

For those that have already bought a loupe, you will know the lens is sharp, no distortion, no colour shift and its truly the best you can buy on the market today – if you don’t believe me, check out the loupe at your nearest stockist – its the best!

As with all optics, the better the glass the less eyestrain. There is nothing worse than looking through a bad optic all day, spending hours editing and ruining your eyes…

Cambo Sony A7 Loupe

How does the loupe fit to the camera?

  1. Insert the frame in the baseplate and tighten the hex bolts.
  2. Offer up to the base of the camera and slide the 1/4” thread to fix.
  3. At this point you can move the frame around to make sure you can view all of the screen. The A7/7R has a 7.5cm (3.0”) TFT screen.
  4. Clip on the loupe and adjust the dioptre.

SonyLoupe2

 

Why us the loupe on a Mirror less camera?

Gareth from doodledoMOTION tried out the loupe and said “Its definitely more comfortable to hold and shooting video with the cup up against the eye feels much better” he continued “in bright sunlight you are less likely to get stray light which makes shooting easier and you can see exactly where the camera shooting area is”.

SonyLoupe4

The Sony loupe is available now from Cambo, product code 99211132.  Includes Loupe, Baseplate, Frame, Eyecup, Lanyard & Lens cap. Priced at €360.00 / £299.00 + TAX/VAT and shipping.
