Tech Cameras with Doug Peterson!

Tech Cams are Back and Better Than Ever!
Technical cameras (aka Tech Cams) are a category of camera that provide rise, fall, shift, tilt, and swing with every lens. They come in two main types: view cameras that are well suited to tabletop/macro/product photography and pancake cameras that are well suited to landscape, architecture, and street photography. During the 1990s and aughts technical cameras fell out of favor because the digital backs they worked best with were cumbersome to use – lots of cables, color cast issues, and sliding ground glass. Now with the advent of the Phase One IQ4 all the hassle is gone; no cables, no color cast, and no sliding ground glass. That means all the advantages that technical cameras have always carried (precision, movements, lens quality, flexibility) can be used fast and fluidly.

Presentation
Our Head of R+D and tech cam enthusiast Doug Peterson will be on hand to present on technical cameras. The presentation will cover both the basics (in case you've not used a tech camera) as well as the advanced (in case you're using them every day). He'll discuss the technical advantages, aesthetic impact, and use cases of technical cameras, and how, after years of fading out of common use, the tech camera is roaring back in popularity.

Hands On
We'll have a variety of technical cameras such as the Arca Swiss RM3Di, Cambo Wide RS1600, Cambo Actus, and Arca Swiss Factum with an array of lenses. We'll have digital backs such as the IQ4 150mp and the IQ3 100mp Achromatic available for you to try on these platforms.

Whether you are an experienced digital tech or new to the field we look forward to seeing you!


Featuring out sponsors at:

Known for being the first studio camera manufacturer to produce an all-metal large format camera, Cambo has since built a reputation for high quality, precision engineered cameras, stands and other studio equipment.
