    Re: Arg!!

    Well, my fuji PA-145 fits fine on the 4x5 reducing back I have for my 5x7 tech. There is a bulge on the fuji back, but it might not be as prominent as the 405?
    There is definitely a fair amount of...
  2. Re: Technika owners -- do you use the rear movements?

    I DO use them, but I use them more on my 5x7 Tech IV, which does NOT have the side locks, just the 4 knobs to unscrew. It's much more convenient- those locks are a pain!

    Re: Linhof Technika for Medium Format Film

    The Horseman is a nice little camera, I used to own a VH. And it Will handle a 65mm. But unless you have a recessed board, the bellows will be compressed enough that you won't get too much rise out...

    It's a great combination.

    Re: Linhof Serial Numbers

    Info on the IV's is rather tough to find, that's for sure!

    I should measure the degree of movements some time,
    and see if there's any change from a III.

    Thanks Bob-

    I think @ the 100$ price point I'd probably buy whichever you put out first (although I'd push for the 65), and you should pretty easily be able to hit your 500 mark. Simple is good.
