After the weekend my next project is to photograph, price and offer my
Linhof Techikardan 45 kit For Sale. If you think you might be interested I can show you the gear in person rather than have you just look at pictures. Items will be priced so that a lens or the whole kit can be bought.

This has been an excellent kit for my needs, but I have pretty much moved to 8x10 and 7x17 leaving this gear unused in the closet. Everything is in very good condition. All shutters have been exercised periodically. Here is a list.

Linhof Techikardan 45 serial# 0851129
Standard bellows replacement made by Camera Bellows
Wide Angle bag bellows
Folding focusing hood 45 001612
Right angle reflex attachment 45 002628
Tele/macro bracket for TK 45 002741
Bosscreen
Standard Linhof ground glass. This has small right angle Sharpy marks for the area covered by a 6x7cm roll film back that used the camera before I could develop 4x5 film. RF back has been sold.

Copy Linhof operator’s manual for TK45S which covers all aspects of this camera.

Lenses: All metal and paint in very good shape. Glass is in excellent condition. There are no scratches, haze, fungus, separation. Shutters in good working order, functioning properly at each speed. Always stored in an open zip lock bag to provide abrasion & dirt protection without condensation.

90mm f8 Schneider Technika (select) Super Angulon f8-64 1-500 serial# 11 508 711 (1970-72) Front factory cap. Rear replacement cap, retaining ring mounted on Technika style board.

135mm f/5.6 Rodenstock Apo-Sironar-S MC Lens with Copal #0 Shutter f5.6-64
Serial # 11659441. Both factory caps, retaining ring mounted on Technika style board.

180mm Rodenstock Apo-Macro Sironar f5.6 MC f5.6-64 Suitable for both straight and macro shooting, Apo-Macro-Sironar Lens with Copal #1 Shutter Serial # 11236122
Recommended film size 5”x7” Both factory caps, retaining ring mounted on Linhof Technika board.

210mm Schneider APO-Symmar f5.6 F5.6-64, 1-400 serial# 14 322 066 (1988-1991)
Both factory caps, retaining ring mounted on Linhof Technika board. Two small screw holes were drilled in this board by the prior owner. Both are covered by one piece of black tape and are light tight.

300mm EBC Fujinon C f8.5. Copal 1 f8.5-64 serial# 632976
Both factory caps, retaining ring mounted on Technika style board.


Spare Linhof Technika board drilled for Copal 1 shutter
Spare recessed Technika board drilled for Copal 1 shutter. The recess appears to be about 1cm. There are two small screw holes drilled for a cable release holder. These can be covered with black tape or used as the prior owner planned.

There is enough bellows draw for my 450mm Nikon f9 M, but that is now being used on the larger formats.

Many light tested film holders.

Here is a link to Linhof’s page on the current camera with specs. http://www.linhof.de/technikardan_e.html Mine is the generation before (TK45, no S), but most is the same. Note that at the bottom center of the page there is a link to a pdf with additional details.

As of Thursday morning Weather.com says it is going to be a pretty good weekend in Bath, Ohio.

Friday: Widely scattered showers early. Chance of rain 30%. Partly cloudy, high 70 degrees F, low 50 degrees F.

Saturday: Mostly sun then clouds. Chance of rain 0 %. High 62, low 45.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain 10 %. High 64, low 54.

I think it will be tolerable.

There has been a lot of rain this week so plan on mud, wet grass and bush in the woods.

John

Hmmm.... staying only one night and everything is wet.... maybe sleeping in the Escort is in order again, proved surprisingly tolerable last time. Of course I was a bit envious of Lee, stretched out in that mini-van! =)

Savannah is a bit of a cougar. She has always liked younger men. If you would like to curl up with a good looking blond she says she is available. I should warn you however that not only does she snore, she also groans with joint pain. On the other hand she is an inexpensive dinner date. She has been known to find her own meals. If you like possum Cindy may be a better choice as she is a proven huntress.

Anyone attending have some Fuji Acros in 4x5? Or maybe 120? I plan on using it for night photography and would like to try it before ordering in bulk. It's expensive so let me know what you need for it.

Shawn, I have some in 120, I think. I'm not shooting much lately, so I'd rather it get used than sit in my freezer. I'll have to check and see how much I have.

Speaking of equipment. jameswilliamjones is looking for a lensboard to mount a big f4.5 Nikkor SW 90mm to his Graphic view or Grundlach. Or perhaps even a modern view camera to fit the lens!

We will probably be able to make it to John's house Friday PM and then go out to dinner with the group.

Excellent! Let me know. Thanks, Bethe! And looking forward to meeting the little guy!

so if you were a bag of tent poles.......... where would you hide? :mad:

Found 'em! :p

ok so if you were a bag of tent poles.......... where would you hide? :mad:
I would turn myself inside out and pin myself to the mantle in plain sight. :) Barring that, I'd have stayed in the back of the jeep where you left me after the last trip, hoping you'd forget me. How about stuffed into the same bag as the tent? Was jbannow looking hungry when you were breaking down the tent on the last trip? Do the tent poles in any way resemble bacon? Did they get botox injections and convert into a tripod like the one you're always giving more attention to, and running off with every morning?

Good luck finding them, and I also have a tent to lend if you need one. I may even be able to find the poles given a little notice.

I have some 120 Acros, but not sure how many rolls. No 4x5 Acros. Will bring what I have. Spent 6 hours in doctors' offices, imaging rooms, and travel back and forth today, so I'll arrive less well prepared than I'd hoped. Meaning about the same as always. (Everyone's OK here, negative on the injuries we were ruling out.) Saxophone recital this evening.

Looking forward to seeing everyone, including the new folks, young and old.

So I guess I gotta delete my post now ...

Glad you'll be dry and have a higher ceiling.

Shawn, I have 4 rolls and could give up 2 to a better cause than sitting in the cold and dark as they are now.
I also have a stash of expired but frozen color film if anyone is interested. I'll try to remember to bring this stuff!

Awesome! Thanks, Bethe.

A housekeeping request. Please avoid parking on the grass on the east edge of the driveway. We have had so much rain that my lawn mower started to sink there last night. Parking cars there would give us a real mud track mess for the rest of the summer. Remember that three people live further down the driveway and need to come and go. Parking is going to be difficult. Please help as much as you can.

From Posts and PMs it looks like at least half of you will arrive this afternoon (Friday). Fantastic! We are starting off with enthusiasm.

Thanks,

John & Dolly

Friday AM.

The rain has stopped.
The sun is out.
The Porta Potty has arrived.
We must be going to have a party.

No Acros 120 on the first pass. Did I actually shoot it all? Will check more thoroughly as I pack. May throw in some TMX and TMY-1 in 4x5 if that helps you Shawn. And I have some TMY-1 in 120 (frozen) that I'll bring.

I may need to borrow John's darkroom to load holders, as I spent yesterday in unplanned endeavors which pushed mowing for a lawn party (here at the ranch tomorrow) to this morning. I was invited to the party here as well, but it's nice to have options.

Thanks for checking, Lee! Bethe is bringing a couple rolls of 120 for me to try. I'll be using it at night so the reciprocity characteristics are what I'm after. TMX has that darn UV blocker built in so I can't use it to print on silver chloride...

All the best. Shawn

As always the 11' x 13' darkroom is available for camera emergencies and film holder loading/unloading.

Thank you Lee for choosing this party.

Looks like jameswilliamjones and I are off today. When are you expecting folks? Do you need any help getting ready?
