The Cambo ACTUS Actar-24mm Lens is a 24mm wide angle with a manual aperture ranging from f3.5-22 with half click stops, making it ideal for landscape and architectural photography. The lens is fixed in a lens panel that slots into the front of the Actus making it easy to set up and quickly pack away. Those die-hard landscape photographers that are conscious of carrying a lot of kit in the field will be delighted to know it only weighs-in at 660grams.
The optical design is 16 elements in 11 groups, all lenses are multi-coated to achieve the best contrast range. There is also an 82mm filter thread to add a UV for protection or you can enhance your creative flair by adding a filter kit.
There is almost no geometrical distortion. The Cambo ACTUS Actar-24mm Lens has a 60mm image circle, which enables optical horizontal shift of 10mm left and right. So when using a full frame sensor (24×36) the maximum horizontal stitched area is 24mm x 56mm. The rise/fall is 12mm up and down, a total stitched area of 48mm x 56mm with 9 images.
The Cambo ACTUS-XCD is derived from the ACTUS-Mini camera system, designed for mirrorless cameras, such as the Sony Alpha 7 series & Fuji-X camera bodies. It combines traditional view camera techniques with the latest capture technology.
