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.

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…

Cambo Actus open box

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…

CamboActusSizeFront

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

CamboActusSize2

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…
