This is a totally different view camera. The studio on the go. The Technikardan S45 perfectly combines the compactness of the classic Linhof Technika drop bed design and the optical bench versatility of the Kardan series. It is a compact and mobile camera system designed for the demanding pro who needs to travel light but also wants to exploit all the possibilities of a fully adjustable viewcamera system whether with film or digital. The click-stops assure positive zero settings for faster operation. The patented concept of the rotating standards allows to fold the camera to extremely compact dimensions.
The Technikardan S45 offers full format flexibility from the standard rollfilm sizes up to 4×5 in. cutfilm, including the remarkable 6×12 wide-field images and all the appropriate Polaroid film formats. By changing from normal to wide-angle bellows the Technikardan permits adjustments with extreme wide-angle lenses to 35 mm. Fully compatible within the Linhof system.
