    Also, all Technikas at least from the Tech II forward, and probably the earliest ones, since this idea was central to the concept of a technical camera, have rear swings and tilts, so it is possible to get indirect front tilt by tilting the rear standard, then tilting the camera on the tripod head so the rear standard is plumb, and using front rise to recompose.

    With a strong tripod and head, another option is to tilt the camera on its side and use the front swing as tilt, since the back can rotate 360 degrees.

    There are focus knobs on both sides of the camera (IV and later--not sure about the IIIs), so you can focus left or right handed with the camera right side up or upside down.

    I haven't seen the film for a while, but I think Burtynski uses a Tech V or Master or maybe Tech 2000.

    I use a Linhof MT3000. Most likely it was that a front fall was required. However you can drop the front bed and rack the front standard out onto it. You then would most likely need to do some correction with the front tilt. It might just be easier though to turn the camera upside and use the front rise as a fall. Both methods work.

    On the MT3000 the front tilt works in both directions. And if you need some rear tilt correction the back loosens and extends at the four corners allowing some rear standard tilt and swing. However this is limited with short lenses.
