    Linhoff: Please identify

    Greetings, new to this forum and 4x5 photography (mainly a 35mm and med. format shooter). A relative is going to give me this machine and sent a photo of it. Wondering if anyone has an idea of what it is. Thanks for your expertise!Click image for larger version.

    It looks similar to a Perka 9x12, sometimes badged as Silar (proto-Linhof). There are a few variants with small differences. 9x12cm is a metric format slightly smaller than 4x5. Film is available, though you'll need to find the correct holders and film sheaths (septums) if they don't come with the camera.

    If you can find one, there are RADA 120 backs that fit this camera. With a rotating back and removable lensboards it's quite a handy camera.
