  8. Re: Justify the acquiring of a new Linhof Technika?

    LInhof only made one press camera in 45 and that was the Standard Press that Berkey wanted to compete against the Graphics in the USA. Since it was made to be a press camera it did not have back...

    On my first business trip to the LInhof factory they gave me a tour before lunch.

  12. Re: Review of Linhof Heavy Duty Tripod, comments welcome.

    It does have spikes, you screw the rubber feet up to expose them.

    But you probably not buy something for a heck of a lot less then a good, used Super Technika IV. Maybe for not much less then a 50 year old Master Technika. And both would outlast that heck of a lot...
  16. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    Not as common but Rodenstock also made a 120 and a 150 Imagon. The most recent ones were made for and sold by Schmactenburg. We were both the Rodenstock and the Schmactenburg distributor in the USA...
  17. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    You misunderstood me. If you use a 4x loupe on 45 you are seeing what to expect on a 16x20Ē print.
    If you are having 810 prints made from a section of a large print you may easily be looking at more...

    Re: An extra pane on my Tachihara

    LInhof used to with old models but stopped doing that decades ago. I think that the inside position had more to do with how easily old fresnel screens could scratch compared to modern ones.

  21. Re: Linhof Kardan Master TL/GTL - can parts be interchanged?

    There are other differences but that should not effect how you use the camera. The biggest difference is that the back of the GTL/Master GTL had continuously variable assymetric movement plus the...

    Re: An extra pane on my Tachihara

    Not if it is closest to your eye. Itís just a protective glass. If it was under the gg, and the gg has not been adjusted for it, then it will displace the gg plane.

    Re: An extra pane on my Tachihara

    Normal gg positioning is the ground side faces the lens. Are you saying that yours faces the film.
    If so you are probably always out of focus by the thickness of your gg unless your cameraís gg...
  24. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    Much simpler is that you can not increase sharpness if your lens canít deliver it. But any lens can be made softer.
  25. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    To test it take shots of what you will use it for. If you will use it for copy work shooting a flat page from a newspaper is fine. If for landscapes test it on a landscape, etc..

    No but people sometimes removed it.

  29. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    You use it to take pictures of what you want to use it for. Stop down 2 stops and then take additional shots down to f22.
    Pick the best. Is that result make you happy? Make sure what you shoot has...

    Re: How does rear tilt affect front tilt?

    A simpler answer is that rear tilts and swings control image shape and Scheimpflug.
    Front tilts and swings only change Scheimpflug.
