General Linhof 45 Color Kardan 5x4 Information

The Linhof Color 4x5 was a monorail bellows camera made by Linhof since 1959. It was a very versatile camera with turnable plate holder on the back. Special metal alloys were used so that its weight was kept as low as 4 1/2 lbs. Of course it was prepared for all kinds of lens board movements. It was advertised as precision camera for professional applications.

This camera can use lenses from 90mm to 360mm on flat lensboards with the standard bellows. It is compact enough to be used as a field camera. Movements of the rear standard are done in a somewhat unusual manner; four knurled,chrome-plated locking knobs are unscrewed and four long metal "posts" are pressed with your fingers to move each of the four corners of the camera, each of which can be independently moved and adjusted. Normally, if you loosen the top two locking screws, it's easy enough to pull the rear standard "back" and toward the groundglass side of the camera, and then lock the screws once you've adjusted the back to your satisfaction. An alternate method is to unscrew all four locks and pull the entire back and all four corners fully out, and then press forward to adjust the back as needed to get the rear standard adjusted as you want it to be. Since all four corners can be adjusted independently, it is possible to set the camera back up "out of whack" or "off-kilter", so to speak. The security and ease of locking with the thumb screws is surprising; the quality of materials, design,and assembly is high.

Looking after your camera

Use a Camera Bag

A camera bag does more than just protect the camera against scratches and dust: It keeps it safe from rain because many are waterproof on the outside.

Be Very Careful Around the LCD Screen and Camera Lens

Use only special equipment to clean your camera’s LCD screen and camera lens. Buy a special cleaning kit that includes liquid solutions, microfiber cloths and brushes that have been specially designed to clean your camera lens.

Never Leave Your Batteries in Your Camera for Too Long
Many camera batteries are now alkaline or lithium formats. If you keep your camera with the batteries inside of it in a moist area, then the batteries can get corrosive. So if you’re thinking about just putting your camera on the shelf for several months, do yourself a favor and remove them.

Turn Your Camera Off Prior to Doing Anything

Before you do anything to your camera, always keep in mind that it should be turned off first. No matter what it is—swapping lenses, changing memory cards or disconnecting or attaching cables—your camera should be turned off.

Cold and Wet Weather Can Wreak Havoc on Your Camera Body
Take your camera out only in a waterproof bag. If the weather’s unusually cold, just wrap your camera in a plastic bag that has silica desiccant packets for the reduction of moisture. It’s also a smart idea to have a soft towel with you to wipe off any moisture, just in case it should get on your camera.

Good Memory Card Care Is Good Camera Care

Only transport your memory cards inside of a protective caseMake sure the memory cards stay dust-free at all times. When removing memory cards, make sure you do so indoors or in non-dusty situations.
Make sure that you keep memory cards only in cool places. Never keep them in places where they may heat up, like dashboards or glove compartments.
Never place your memory cards close to magnetic sources. Examples of magnetic sources are things such as audio speakers, TV monitors and actual magnets.

Use a Filter to Protect Your Camera Lens

The lens of your camera is naturally fragile. As such, it’s susceptible to scratches, cracks, dents…you name it. A UV filter will not only will you give your lens a fighting chance, but you’ll also enhance the quality of your pictures.

Condensation Can Be Controlled

Condensation normally happens when you move your camera between different temperatures.
Allow your camera a chance to naturally get used to the hotter environment. Don’t place it inside a closed plastic bag when transporting it between different temperatures! Just let the camera sit in the humid temperature for a while, until condensation disappears.
If this still doesn’t get rid of all of it, you can utilize a soft cloth to wipe away any remaining moisture and marks left behind from the condensation.
