Linhof Technikardan Questions : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have a two questions for Linhof Technikardan users. Probably dumb and/or compulsive questions at that. 1) Does the compendium lens shade for this camera flip out of the way somehow? The B&H salesman said it does but I cannot see how. 2) The directions say that to close the camera all the red suitcases need to be lined up on right. I cannot see any value to making the middle suitcase (the focusing gear) line up. Seems like a wasted step. Am I missing something?

Perhaps you should talk to me at 800 735 4373 since we are the linhof distributor.

To open or close the camera all red locks must be unlocked and all green ones locked. All controls placed on 0.

The Compendium does not flip up. It is on a square rail so it can slide off or you can slide it off the accessory shoe.
