    This might not be helpful, but my Super Technika set is entirely satisfied with three lenses, each with its cam numbers matched to the lens and camera serial number. I hope you have the same good luck, although it is highly unlikely given my set was an original first order.

    Using a recessed Linhof adapter, I can fold either a 210mm f/6.8 Graphic Kowa or a 159mm f/12.5 Wollensak Extreme Wide Angle up into my Intrepid 8x10. Both make very light and appealing field options.

    My Linhof 3000 is stored folded with a Nikon 150/5.6 attached on a standard board. Like Bob said, the lens/lens cap diameter must fit the circle in the bed. When I first tried to fold the 3000 with the 150/5.6, the diameter of the original lens cap was too wide. I tried a different cap and it works. I use the 150 more than other lenses. Before the 150 Nikon, my Docter 240/9 stored with the camera folded. Below are some quick phone snaps.



    Kind regards,

    Is this limited to 4X5?

    I have a Linhof Standard 5x7 which easily folds most 210mm lenses mit shutter.

    The ones that fit...

    Take the back and lens off camera and measure the space between the lensboard and closed cover... Then ask sellers to measure height of the front, to the shutter mounting seat...

    Also remember that filters, lens caps add to this height, so factor them in...

    Rulers rule...

    Not a technika, but:

    Crown Graphic - closes with a 135/3.5 Xenotar no problem.
    Speed Graphic - closes with a 150/2.8 Xenotar in barrel on a custom recessed lensboard.

    I have the following lenses which I use with my Technika (they all fit with the camera folded closed):

    120mm Schneider Apo-Symmar L f/5.6
    135mm Rodenstock Apo-Sironar S f/5.6
    210mm G-Claron f/9
    240mm G-Claron f/9
    300mm Nikkor-M

    They are mounted on the Linhof Lensboard with the Quick release Shutter Adapter:

    I leave my Horseman FA open all the time. Folding it does not make it any lighter. Having mentioned that, I might try folding it with a lens and putting it in a smaller bag to see how that works. Of course I still have a heavy tripod and film holders to contend with. I have a Horseman branded 150, I wonder if that fits.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your messages : ) !!!

    It seems to me that fuji and Nikon
    have a larger number of compact
    lenses.

    It is a shame that information about
    lenses' length is very limited or not
    out there at all.

    Here is the Rodenstock 150mm. Apologetics's Sironar S:
    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...ar_S_Lens.html
    The overall length is mentioned under
    the specifications.

    Fuji and Nikon seem to have a good
    number of lenses one may be able
    to close up inside almost any field
    camera, as the rear element of each
    lens does not seem to protrude much,
    but there is no place to find out the
    length of the lenses.

    Thank you again, kind regards,

    Ig

    Most of those “compact” lenses are process lenses. Rodenstock also made them, Apo Ronar, Apo Geragon. Schneider also made them. They were originally designed for copying flat field objects.
