About the Linhof Kardan Master GTL

Most sophisticated and technically advanced monorail system in the LINHOF line, a superbly engineered heavy duty studio camera with all the proven advantages of the KARDAN design principle and the added convenience of yaw-free indirect displacements. The modular KARDAN GTL combines maximum stability with extended adjustment facilities and extremely smooth movements with solid brass micro drives offering the greatest amount of corrective control of any camera system available today. It utilizes direct displacements to their greatest extent and allows yaw-free indirect displacements with inclined monorail, especially advantageous for close-up table top work, so that each user has total freedom of choice and can select his specific displacement technique, including the optional use of freely adjustable asymmetrical (floating axis) swings and tilts on the rear standard. Built-in depth-of-field optimizer.
