The Linhof Master Technika 2000 is the latest variation of the classic Master Technika. It is supplied with either a chrome plated body housing or a black finished body housing.
In place of the Master Technika's built-in rangefinder a wide angle focusing system has been built into the camera housing. The wide angle focusing system on the 2000 accommodates lenses from 35mm to 65mm without the need for other accessories. Lenses longer then 65mm are used on the extension bed tracks. The 2000 can be used handheld with the Multi-Focus Finder which zooms from 75 to 360mm and comes with a rotating 4x5" mask. Masks for smaller formats are readily available. The optional Anatomical Grip for the left side features a comfortable adjustable strap, a cable release and the grip easily adjusts to the most comfortable position. Also available is a Right Hand Anatomical Grip without strap or cable release. Focsing Scales and Infinity Stops are available from service to aid in hand held use.
The Master Technika 2000 has geared front rise as well as front tilt and swing plus shift. The back is equipped with the Linhof Folding Focusing Hood and has tilts and swings. The front drop bed has 3 positions and the camera has a triple extension bed.
With its ultra-compact housing measuring only 18x18 x 11 cm / 7x7x4.5 in. the Master Technika can easily be carried and set up on location. Its rugged, yet lightweight die-cast aluminum body perfectly protects all vital parts including lens, bellows, groundglass and the sophisticated adjustment mechanism.
