The Arca-Swiss M-Line Two has scales for swing, shift, rise and fall.  But I don't see any scales for tilt.

Am I missing something?

If not, any suggestions on how I might accurately dial in, say, 3 of tilt?

Many thanks,

The AS M-line 2 has tilt and swing on the front standard and rise/fall and left/right sift on the rear standard, for digital this is more than you need.

Hi, issa,

Perhaps I can clarify.

I'm looking for the *scales* for tilt--a reading of the current tilt setting or a way to set a particular amount of tilt.  All the other movements have scales, but I don't see one for tilt.

I don't know if you own the camera or not, but mine appears to lack a reading for the tilt.  Based on the design of the camera, I assume the scale should be on the tilt knob.  Can anyone confirm?

Hope that helps clarify.

Brad -

One of the restrictions of the M2 camera vs the M. See attached jpg with M vs M2 (our M is without the Orbix tilt). You may have to create your own scale with etched marks on the base the knob turns against with a marker.

Generally the tilt on a view camera with ground glass is used without a scale as the photographer would set tilt visually.
This is also true as Rodenstock and Schneider use different design philosophies.
This means that the curvature of field will vary between brands and so any formulas generally available would probably not be accurate.
The monolith has both base tilt and Microorbix.  Both types are used by the same method.  Focus far and tilt near.
Because of the lack of base front tilt on the MF2 it has only Microorbix.
Still operates visually, so no scales.  Also means lower cost to the user.
Hope this helps.
