The movements are driven by accellerated spindle gears, operated by XL size stainless steel driveknobs with excellent grip.

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.

An integrated weight compensation for the digital back equalises the movements for rise and fall to the same effortless feeling. 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 or intentionally selective sharpness where needed.

Like the other Cambo Wide models, the WRS-5000 features interchangeable interfaces for Hasselblad, Leaf, Phase One and Sinar digital backs. Mounts are available for Hasselblad V, Hasselblad-H, PhaseOneXF/Mamiya 645DF and Contax 645AF compatible camerabacks. A dedicated interface plate hosting both 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 HR Digaron lenses. Choose from focal lengths ranging from 23mm up to 180mm and more on request.
