Monorail camera

Monorail cameras got their name because older bellows camera constructions use the "folding bed", two rails on the folding bed, or just two rails as means along which the camera front and maybe also camera back can be moved forward and backward. One strong rail as base can make view cameras more versatile. If the rail is profiled round movements are possible that can't be achieved with a conventional view camera. But monorail cameras with square profiled rail like the Super Cambo already offer the whole range of possible shift and tilt movements. The monorail cameras are as versatile as the optical bench of an optical laboratory.
