I have got a few questions concerning the Linhof Technikardan 6x9:

1. What is the shortest lens that can be used on a flat lensboard?

2. What is the longest lens that can be used on a flat lensboard?

3. What is the size of the lensboards?

4. Does it take Horseman 6x9 rollfilmholders? If not, which RFHs does it accept?

Thank you very much in advance!

Kind regards

You can get most of this info off the B&H website.

Hello Aender,

Here´s my limited experience with the TK23 (Excellent camera, but i went for an Arca 4x5):

1. I used a 65mm Grandagon as shortest lens on a flat board (and a 45mm Grandagon on a recessed board)

2. I had a 210mm as longest lens, but you might be able to use longer lenses - max. camera extension (lens to film plane) is 355mm

3. Linhof Technika boards (96x99mm)

4. No, it does not. You will need to get the Linhof Super Rollex backs (available as 6x6, 6x7, 6X9) or a Rapid Rollex 6x7 back (slip-in type as Calumet/Cambo rollfilm backs). Super Rollex backs are excellent, but expensive: about USD/EUR 200-300 for a 6x7 (used!), about USD/EUR 350-450 for a 6x9 back (also used). New they are unaffordable (> USD/EUR 1000,-!)

You can also use Hasselblad backs on the TK.
