I've stumbled across an older camera in my local shop, and wanted to know if any body out there is familiar with the design or knows its market value; It's a Lin hof Color Kardan. It apears to consist of Technikardan III-like standards on a c ircular monorail. The particular sample I'm looking at has been modified (by a V ERY good machinist from all indications) such that the monorail splits into 2 se gments, which means that the camera folds to ~5" thick. Maximum extention is ~16 ".

Originally there was the Linhof Kardan with the front and rear of the Technika IV (there was no camera named a Technikardan III) that camera was replaced by the Kardan Color which had a split monorail and rear rise.

If you want me to verify which model specifically this is you can post the serial number. It does not sound like this camera has been modified at all.
