    While there is a compendium available for the Master Technika there was only the discontinued rigid Sytem Lens Shade which doesn't work together with camera movements.

    So I'm looking for an adjustable bellows lens shade that allows to work with camera movements.

    Is there a thirdparty system able for use with the Technika V 6x9cm?

    I think that the Linhof compendium shade is usable with the 2x3" Technika, but the bracket to attach it is not easy to find. On my Tech V 23b (the latest version), there is a screw hole on top of the front standard, which I am fairly sure is where the compendium shade would connect. I don't know if they made a smaller shade for the smaller camera, or if it is just the 4x5" shade with a different bracket. You might ask on lfphoto.info, and Bob Salomon, the US rep for Linhof, is likely to have an answer.

    Other possibilities would by systems like the Lee shade system that attach to the lens, though with normal-wide lenses there could be mechanical issues with the shade bumping against the focus rail.

    David,

    thank you for this Information. I own a Linhof catalogue from the 1980s. There is no device to attach the Master compendium in front of the V 6x9 (2x3"). So I fear the bracket if it ever existed is discontinued now for a long time. My Technika also owns this screw hole but I think (while I'm not sure:whistling:) it is for adjustment of the shift mechanism.

    Isn't the Master compendium much to huge for this tiny camera?

    A Lee shade would be nice, but there are some 'conflict areas' at the base board (for example the release buttons of the camera front).

    Over on lfphoto.info, someone posted instructions for making a very nice barndoor shade, which is a good solution, in lieu of a compendium.
