    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    Good part of the reason is because EPOI and then Sinar Bron were very free in long time demo loans to studios. I was one of those EPOI that did some of these.

    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    Not to forget that the movements are silky smooth, without lubricants, each movement has separate locks and tilts, on the S version, has a removable detent.

    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    No, more gearing man’s more weight.
    A LInhof TK 45S will do everything you want, and then more, but with no geared movements othe then focus.
  7. Re: 8x10" at which length, is an auxiliary bellows support necessary?

    Made of aluminum.
  8. Re: Official length of Linhof Kardan TL 8x10" bellows?

    Where?
  9. Re: 8x10" at which length, is an auxiliary bellows support necessary?

    Shouldn’t be necessary. If the bellows develops sag just take it off and rotate it 90°. If you want, since the rail is flat on top just put a paper cup under the bellows.
  10. Re: Official length of Linhof Kardan TL 8x10" bellows?

    As long as you aren’t using the longer rail accessory. Longest one I sold was a meter long.

    Re: Using filters on LF lenses

    Focus shift is focus shift. If you place a filter behind the lens, and that lens was not designed for a rear filter, then you have created a focus shift.

    Re: Using filters on LF lenses

    Any dirt, dust smudges, etc will effect the lens from behind much more then in front. And there will be a focus shift.

    Hi Bob,
    I've recently become the owner of a 5x7 Super Technika, serial n. 2411208
    Could you please confirm it's a version "V" or otherwise? Which year?
    Thanks in advance,
    best

    But if you had gotten the Rodenstock one it would also work with 3 size shutters. This one doesn’t.

    Re: Linhof Technika III vs later models

    You should have told that to Mary Ellen Mark. She used her Master Technika hand held using the rangefinder.
    If it is properly cammed it can’t drift off.
  32. Re: There is a weird little screw on my Schneider SA XL 5,6/58

    Get a rubber stamp pad. Rub the pad over the screw head. Put the shutter in the lens board hole and press down. You will have a mark where to drill or file out.

    Since one is newer then the other you can not assume that they did not undergo other changes.

    No, we used 5 and 9” roll film and occasionally some sheet film.
