The Linhof Master Technika classic offers hand-held large format images without groundglass control when combined with the coupled range finder system and the Multifocus Optical Viewfinder. The Multifocus Optical Viewfinder is a precision accessory of highly functional design. It is attached to the Technika for the purpose of conveniently and accurately setting the desired image field. It allows for all the various focal lengths commonly ­required and automatically corrects parallax and loss of image field. All the requisite settings for focal length and distance are carried out from the rear, i.e. the ­customary viewing direction, by means of milled rings. This optical device produces a­ ­practically distortion-free image from edge to edge. ­­
The built-in coupling cams and tracers are made of hard anodized steel and are therefore not subject to any wear and tear. In order to facilitate viewing with the ­negative holders inserted, the eye-piece was placed as far as possible to the rear. Neither the insertion nor the removal of the holders is encumbered by the viewfinder as this can be rotated to the side if necessary. When swinging back the viewfinder it engages in the original working position. The viewfinder should also be in this position when the ­camera is put into a eveready case. It is moved back into place for operation. Viewfinder masks which are attached to the front lens are available for reduced formats.
