Linhof Technikardan 23S overview

  • 1Description

The Linhof Technikardan 23S is aimed at the discriminating hobby and professional photographer using rollfilm formats only. It is a fully adjustable midsize view camera with a Linhof Quicklock 23 type groundglass back. The rear standard allows the use of any of the Linhof type 23 viewing accessories. The front standard accepts the popular Technika 45 type lensboards. Its wide-angle lens capabilities allow the use of lenses 47mm and longer without recessed lensboards. The goal of its designers was to have studio camera features in a field camera size with interchangeable bellows, center swings and tilts with zero click stops, triple extension monorail, and precision-machined dovetail fittings for all movements which are positively secured with color-coded locks for smooth, rapid operation.

Front and rear standards rotate 90 degrees, parallel to the rail, making the camera flat and more compact for easy transport

    Linhof Technikardan 23S reviews

    6x9cm Technikardan 23S Camera is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a dandy little camera I own, and have used for at least twenty eight years, several view cameras, currently I have, 6 or 7, so maybe this gives me some qualification. I have only seen three or four Technikardan Cameras, I own a 6 X 9. This camera is incredible compact folded up, and relative light, I own a lighter 4 X 5, I do not use it, and if you had a choice between the two neither would you. I carry this camera almost every where I go, in my backpack, along with two Super Rollex 6 X 9 film backs. A selection of lens, Super Symmar XL 80, Super-Angulon XLs 47,58, maybe a 72, or maybe something longer. Today I walked 21 kilometers with this kit. I only set up the camera twice today, somedays I set it up many times. The adjustments are very precise and locks in a very positively way. This is the best possible technical or view camera, one can have for lots of walking, or traveling by way of public transportation. My camera is four years old and is equipped to use sheet film or the Super Rollex backs. I truly suggest one of the focusing or viewing aids I have two different ones I use the Light measuring viewing bellows.
