I’ve collected all the parts together in this one wish Cambo Mini View Camera wish list at B&H Photo.
A few months back I wrote about the Cambo Actus Mini View Camera for Sony Mirrorless or Fujifilm/Olympus/Nikon/ Canon with a follow-up note. See that post along with comments from Michael Erlewine who has used it extensively.
Now Cambo has announced the CAMBO ACTUS-GFX VIEW CAMERA for the Fujifilm GFX a first proof of why Fujifilm’s shutter approach is more versatile than the lens leaf shutter approach of the Hasselblad X1D.
As per the Cambo web site:
The Cambo ACTUS-GFX 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. This ACTUS-GFX version features a bayonet for use of the Fujifilm GFX-50s, Fuji's new medium format mirrorless camera body.
Using view camera movements the photographer will be able to be more versatile, be more creative and will be getting more professional results much faster than before.
Mirrorless system camera bodies can be used as digital back, while the Cambo ACTUS will function as tilt-shift and swing adapter with view camera movements for each lens that is being used with this combination!!
Size matters, the Cambo ACTUS has been designed to give maximum functionality with minimal dimensions to support portability at ease.
The Cambo ACTUS-Mini series is small and lightweight and fits easily in a small case.

The basic configuration of a Cambo ACTUS-GFX consists of a monorail, front assembly without lensplate, a rear frame with GFX camera bayonet and a detachable standard bellows which is part of the ACTUS configuration.

I did find out more about the new Actus. It is not a new whole rig, but some replacement parts, one for the front and one for the rear. There is also a $200+ bayonet for Nikon, so you now can switch between GFX and Nikon with no screw removal, just a switch. That sounds good to me.
DIGLLOYD: more convenient than ever before.
