  2. Re: Which lenses fold up into your field camera? Linhof Tecnika, Horseman, etc. quest

    On my Horseman HF, i have a 135 mm on a no. 0 shutter that folds up. A old 90 mm (f 6.8?) Wollensak lens also folds up. Nothing on a #1 shutter will fold up. Only the smallest lenses.

    Just be careful when you release the lock on the vertical shaft and keep your head back from it when doing so. It has enough punch to knock out a heavyweight fighter.
