Thanks Doug and Steve; it is now rather clear how much of a step forward this is.

The reality is probably that the only real winner here is Cambo.
Cambo certainly has the first-mover advantage; maybe what happens next depends on whether any of the other tech camera makers can produce something that is "all of the above, plus tilt"!

Tilt is the fourth leg of the chair. Amazing especially with this cameras focus only on wider lenses where tilt can have a big advantage, it was over looked. Cambo only offers it with their TS mounts which add extra cost but a way should have been found of incorporating it in the design.

There is certainly going to be a XTTilt in a few months of next year. ;)

And I bet it's going to offer also more than 12mm of shift and a solution for longer lenses that will require some form of back side spacer.

Cheers,

It would appear that the opinion on this matter is strongly impacted by what tech camera brand is distributed by each of you guys. ;)

Doug sells Arca and predicts a bright future for the Arca-P1 relationship...
Steve sells Alpa and predicts a bright future for the Alpa-P1 relationship...

The reality is probably that the only real winner here is Cambo.

Arca will most definitely survive thanks to their heads and wide range of products for non backs. As far as Alpa goes, they have been trying to diversify recently, probably knowing what was coming from P1, but...

Cheers,
Bernard


I can comment on Alpa, Cambo, and Arca Swiss, as well, since we distribute all three of them.

We are factually aware of the conversations with Alpa and Phase One. What will come of them - time will tell.

Cambo certainly has a leg up, as the WRS mount naturally plays right into their eco system. But their is ample talent on board with all three of these companies, and they're not large companies, not over extended. Survival is a likelihood with all of them.
