I've seen postings talking about the older hugh and heavy 8x10 Linhof Kardan Color Triplex camera. What does the triplex part mean? Format change ability or what? Also, did these have two different length rails or extensions? And, is anybody actually using one of these?
I was thinking about getting one, mostly for portraits with those big fat brass lenses and can't find much information on them.
Would the later Karand Bi be a better choice?
