Up for sale is a late model Linhof Kardan 45s view camera with black square style focusing knobs, built in 1974, in excellent used condition and fully functional, with an full Linhof CLA service just completed.   

This 45s camera is in nice vintage condition with normal light wear as pictured.  Includes original Linhof new replacement bellows just installed. 

The Kardan 45s features a full range of movements, geared focusing with self tension stopping, some of the smoothest dovetail shifts of any camera, it's light weight enough to take in the field and has great range of movements for studio use.  Folds up nicely to fit in a case or bag.

This camera just received an extensive overhaul service, nothing was overlooked or left undone during the 10 hours of bench service!

All movements, all locks, the graflok back and focusing mechanism were all serviced completely. 

All bearings were removed, fully cleaned, restacked and relubricated, all old lubrication was removed, properly cleaned and the camera now operates perfectly smooth.  

All locks are working properly, all tension was adjusted to be spot on, bubble level working properly.  The film and lens plane were realigned for perfect registration.  

Focus travel is perfect and smooth, swing/tilt/shift/rise/fall movements all CLA'd and perfectly smooth with correct amount of tension. 

New film holder light seals just installed, the camera has original Linhof Ground Glass installed in good used condition.  The ground glass back is the same type used on Technika V and Master cameras, it is zero'd out GG registration, so can be switched between a Technika V/ Master camera with cammed lenses and will focus perfectly. 

Includes a Copal #1 lens board.

This camera represents a turn key, ready to shoot camera.  99% of the Linhof cameras out there all need this extensive service to be functioning in optimal condition.
