The Technikardan perfectly combines the compactness of the classic Linhof Technika dropbed 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. The disengageable 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. There are two formats available: 6x9 and 4x5/9x12. The Technikardan 45 offered full format flexibility from the standard Rollfilm sizes up to 4x5 in. cutfilm, including the remarkable 6x12 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.
