As Weegee has shown us, flash is a very useful addition to hand held 4X5 photogr aphy.
Is there an easy way to attach a flash to a current production Linhof Master Tec hnika using the bracket now used for the right hand grip? The bracket mount to the right of the rangefinder was originally designed for the attachment of a fla shgun (the Star Wars handle type). Is there a specific type of adaptable older flashgun whose handle slides and locks into this bracket? Is there some kind of adaptor available to mate a handle or grip to the bracket mount on the Technika ?
Alternatively, one could canabalize the attachment bracket of an expensive Linho f right handed grip and mate that to a machined aluminium cylinder shaped like t he handle of a flashgun. On the top of the cylinder you could attach a Quantum Q-flash, resulting in a compact handle mounted flash system.
Imagine, a hand-held 4X5 camera with auto-exposure...
