Cambo Wide DS Technical Camera with Schneider Apo-Digitar XL lenses (with P45 digital back, 39 Megapixels resolution)


Likes: Lenses, simply the best. Jaw-dropping quality. Fantastic detail. Great camera with plenty of shift movement. Dislikes: Completely spoiled my ability to like the Mamiya 35mm lens! Lenses easily flare, and are slow because of the centre filters. Big.Lenses: - Schneider Digitar XL 24mm, 35mm & 47mm. Great lenses, but would have liked a 24mm with movements!
