M-Line View Cameras
ARCA-SWISS M-Line view cameras are designed for photographers who demand the highest level of precision and control in their work. With a variety of models to choose from, including the M-Monolith, M-Two MF, and M-Two DSLR, each camera offers unique features and advantages to suit the needs of professional photographers.
These cameras are built to last with the finest materials and expert craftsmanship, and are compatible with most ARCA-SWISS camera accessories, allowing photographers to customize an M-Line view camera to their specific needs.
In a unique design feature of the M-Line, all camera movements are located on the front and rear function carriers, instead of the front and rear frames. This innovative design shifts all camera controls to the function carrier of each standard. The strategic placement of these controls not only increases user convenience but also optimizes the camera’s weight distribution. By positioning most of the weight closer to the monorail and away from the standards, it enhances the camera’s stability, making it even more user-friendly.
M-Line cameras offer telescoping control knobs, micro-metric geared controls, and Micro-Orbix® gear-driven tilt as standard features. M-Line cameras are designed for format conversions, up to 8x10 for the M-Monolith, and up to 4x5 for the M-Two, making them versatile and adaptable to the needs of any professional photographer.
With leather or synthetic bellows options, and a variety of lens boards for technical or internal focusing lenses, these cameras offer the flexibility and convenience that photographers need to create the perfectly refined photograph. The M-Line camera comparison chart below provides information for each model, allowing photographers to choose the best option for their needs.
