The Linhof 3D Micro is a new levellng head developed by Linhof guaranteeing extremely precise camera adjustments. The concept of the 3D Micro came from the proven integrated leveling system of the bench holder of the Linhof M 679. This levelling segment has been duplicated and turned through 90 degrees resulting in two precise segment guides for tilt and lateral levellng. Via rubber coated turning knobs, self-aligning micro movements of 12 degrees are possible on both sides as well as front and rear.

An additional panoramic plate placed above the movement axis permits exact individual exposures for composed panoramic images. All adjustments can be controlled and repeated with precision. Two spirit levels serve for the control of the vertical positioning of the camera to assist in crucial architectural alignment.
