Linhof Technikardan 45 4X5 Camera with 135mm + 210mm Lenses + Holders

$2,490.00

The Technikardan is a cross between a monorail studio camera and a folding field camera, utilizing the best of both worlds. This is one of the most versatile cameras ever made, with rigidity and stability second to none, while still retaining the ability to fold down into a tiny package, similar to any other folding field camera. The telescoping rail allows for a massive 450mm+ extension, more than any other field camera. This particular camera features the rare Linhof Superscreen, an ultra bright fresnel screen specifically calibrated for this camera. The camera can also take any Linhof viewing accessory, such as the folding hood or reflex viewer (as well as any graflock accessory).
