This exciting addition to the Cambo Wide family features both lateral and vertical shift movements of the rear standard, hence the name RS.

The movements are driven by accelerated spindle gears, these precision-geared controls provide architectural photographers with many of the image-placement movements they require, while giving digital photographers the ability to create amazing vertical and horizontal panoramic images through stitching several exposures together.

Additionally many of the Lenspanels can optionally be acquired with a Tilt-Swing possibility, to add Scheimpflug settings for increased depth of field, in both horizontal as vertical plane.

Like the other Cambo Wide models, the RS features interchangeable interfaces for Hasselblad, Leaf, Phase One and Sinar digital backs. Mounts are available for Hasselblad V, Hasselblad-H, PhaseOne/Mamiya 645DF and Contax 645AF compatible camerabacks. A dedicated interface plate hosting the Leaf AFi and Sinar HY6 backs is also available.

In order to accomplish nearly any architectural or landscape assignment, the Wide RS accepts the full range of WDS lens panels that incorporate the Schneider Digitar and Rodenstock Digital lenses. Choose from focal lengths ranging from 23mm up to 150mm and more on request.

The Wide RS 1200 body weighs just 1.0 kg (2.2 lbs.) and is as compact as 160mm (6.3") x 165mm (6.5"). It comes with a double anodised aluminium for steady shooting, and built-in spirit levels for fast and accurate setups. The removable tripod mount is 3/8" thread.

Removing the tripod mount block reduces the height of the camera to only 140mm. To increase the comfort you can add the WRS-333 tripod block with built-in levelling base, rotating mount and accessory spigot mount. A removable cable release is included with the camera and can be placed either through the left or right handgrip by choice for hand-held shooting.

Whether you use it on a tripod or hand-held for more spontaneous shooting, the Wide RS camera will open up new photographic possibilities for you.
