    Don't forget that you may also be able to reverse your lens board before you fold your camera.
    That usually gives you a bit more room.
    Of course you'll have to re-reverse your lens board before using
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I wonder which lenses will fold up or close up
    inside most field cameras.

    Thank you, kind regards!

    I had a Crown Graphic and a Caltar version of the Rodenstock Geronar 210mm f/6.8 lens. The lens would just fold up into the camera. I had a short Gepe cloth cable release that could stay attached when folded. You could try one on your Linhof. They make nice portrait lenses and are pretty inexpensive in either Caltar or Rodenstock versions.

    I can close my Master Technika with a 150mm Apo-Sironar-S on a regular lensboard albeit I had to change the OEM cap for a smaller one.
    It's extremely convenient!

    Someone has a Rodenstock Grandagon 6.8 90mm and a Master Technika? I'm curious and interested to know if it would work!

    Fujinon/Fujinar 150mm f6.3
    Xenar 150mm f5.6 (Copal 0)
    Fujinon 135mm f5.6
    Ektar 203mm f7.7
    (Haven't tried it, but the Sironar 150mm f5.6 is pretty tiny.)
