"The most sophisticated and technically perfect monorail system in the Linhof line, a superbly engineered heavy duty studio camera with all the proven advantages of the Kardan design principle and the added convenience of yaw-free indirect displacements.  The modular Kardan Master GTL combines maximum stability with solid brass micro drives offering the greatest amount of corrective control of any camera system when produced.  It utilizes direct displacements to their greatest extent and allows yaw-free indirect displacements with inclined monorail, especially advantageous for close-up table top work, so that each user has total freedom of choice and can select the specific displacement technique, including the optional use of freed adjustable asymmetrical (floating axis) swings and tilts on the rear standard."
