View Full Version : What's the difference between Linhof revolving backs?

12-Jul-2001, 23:15
I bought a used Linhof kardan color without revolving back, I want buying another with back on ebay. Are those revolving backs fitting Technika, Kardan color S, Kardan Bi... the same thing, or they are not? Any information is welcome, thanks.

Assuming you have a camera made within the last 30 years and it has the Kardan back with the snap connector on top you would have to buy a Technika to Kardan adapter and then a complete Technika 45 back.

These would cost several times the value of your camera.

Why do you need a revolving back? The Kardan back is just as quick, if not quicker, to change from vertical to horizontal position.
