Anyone in Los Angeles/Orange/San Bernardino County use a Linhof Technikardan 45/45s?
I am looking at shooting just 4x5 for my LF needs going forward, and my two current cameras, a 5x7 Technika V, and a Panfield 4x5, I'd like to combine into one, single camera. The Technikardan seems to fit that bill perfectly. However, I don't want to put out money into ANOTHER camera, simply to try and resell it because it doesn't work.
Does anyone here in the LA/OC/SanBernardino area happen to have a Technikardan I could look at/put my hands on/etc for a half hour or so, just so I could get a feel for it before deciding whether to invest into one or not?
I'd happily buy you a cup of coffee, lunch, etc in trade, or just talk photography if you'd like
