FS: Linhof Technikardan 45 - very complete MINT 4x5 camera kit - $2300
For sale is my near-mint condition Linhof Technikardan 45 camera set. Included are:
- Technikardan 45 camera; original model (not the later "S" version) but completely overhauled by Kindermann in August 2011 (dated receipt showing serial number will be provided to the purchaser). Kindermann are the authorized Linhof factory service centre for Canada. This camera is like new at this point. It has had very little use since then. The camera features a Beattie Intenscreen ground glass and a NEW aftermarket folding focusing hood. The Beattie screen is a miracle and allows for very easy focusing even in low light. There is one superficial ding on one of the standards, which is the only thing that is not "as new" about this camera. But it is strictly cosmetic and in no way affects the performance of the camera. Two of the plastic lever tips have since fallen off and just need to be clipped in. I have them and they will be included.
- NEW bellows custom made by Camera Bellows in the UK, who also make the OEM Linhof bellows.
- NEW wide-angle bag bellows (aftermarket).
- Really Right Stuff 6" arca-style plate (custom fit for this model of camera).
- Original Linhof macro rail...a long custom-fitted aluminum accessory rail that provides for maximum stability when the camera is fully extended. You can use your longest and heaviest lenses with this kit and not have to worry about vibration.
- large Novoflex neoprene wrap with velcro closure, which completely encloses the camera when folded.
If you are reading this then you probably know about this camera already. If not, do a Google search and see what comes up. This is one of the most flexible and versatile large format cameras ever produced. It is a fully-featured Linhof monorail that folds down to the size of the smallest field camera. It is exceedingly light and compact for the level of functionality that it provides. It is a precision instrument engineered by some of the best camera designers in the world, and it is highly durable despite being capable of extremely fine adjustments.
$2300 to me, shipping at your expense fully insured for sale value.
For $2300 CAD (total) by Paypal I will include shipping (fully insured with proof of delivery) to anywhere in North America.
