Camber Snowboards Help

I'm looking through snowboards at a local shop (Their Cheaper in the summer ) and i was wondering something. I've never ridden a camber snowboard before, and when i layed one board on the ground, their was about 3mm cleavage coming in between the feet. is this still considered a camber board or not? I've been wanting to try one out, but I've never even seen one before so i don't really know how far up they go in between the feet.
Thanks in advance

You're saying you've only ridden reverse camber before then?

And ya that elevated area between your feet is about normal with a cambered board

Well it depends on the board/company as far as the actual cambered height goes

What boards were you looking at? I can honestly say that Never Summer has killed it with their R/C and puts little to no need for a regular cambered board anymore

Head i believe, it wasn't that of a board brand i remember, not sure if it was head.

And explain this R/C, I've ridden the same style of board for the past 3-4 years, but i wanna experiment this winter
