    Stop with the catalog stuff. The subject is the L/R grips on my camera, which are perfectly mirrored.

    Oh, and I do have a right-hand grip on my Super Technika V. It was shown in my earlier post. My Linhof right-hand grip fits almost any camera that has a side-mounted rangefinder which includes more than Linhof brands.

    A Linhof right grip fits anything with an E clip mount. It doesnít need a rangefinder to mount it.

    Jac,

    Thanks for the pics. I assume that the grip on the right, is for the right hand, and that metal groove is what slides onto the matching piece on the rangefinder housing? I've never seen a right-hand grip (but I have 3 LH grips, one each that came with my Tech IV, Master Tech, and Linhof 70). I considered looking for a RH grip, but after I discovered that the RH grip slipped onto the RF housing, I realized that would move the center of mass of the camera even further away from the hand - correct? I like the Linhof grip but a typical setup is so heavy that it's definitely a chore/workout to use, and my wrists are in pain after a day of shooting. A grip another inch or so away from the body would cause even more torque on my hand/wrist, though of course your double grips fix that just fine .

    I have got a right hand grip that came with my master technika. I have never actually used it and have so far only used the left grip. I notice that the right grips are no longer available. The previous owner of the camera used it for aerial photography for which I presume it was helpful to have both grips.

    Right grip is still in the latest Linhof factory price list. 002552 is the code.

    Jac thanks for posting. Nice home-made camera! Did you machine all that? Impressive work, no doubt. Is that a 75 biogon? Looks like some heavy parts on there (are those columns and front piece solid aluminum?) Good to know about the right grips, they are hard to find on the used market. I kinda want one to put on my Cambo TWR if I can find one. (I Have a left grip on there already, it works well)

    thanks
    -Ed

    And I'll bet is so expensive that it may as well be obsolete for the rest of us.

    I have no idea, I havenít been involved with Linhof for over 3 years.

    Yes, 75mm Biogon. The material is Dupont Derlin rod & blocks machined to fit. Quite light and strong. No anodizing required to be black. Oh, I got this camera in unfinished condition, no finder, no grips, no tripod mount, etc. I suspect it was designed to be put into a gimbal orienting frame. Dunno.

    Keep looking, Ed! Right-hand grips do show up occasionally! Good luck!

    I like RH grips because I have gross left-hand injuries.

    ASIDE: Here is an oddball left-hand grip. Pretty sure Linhof made it. Two photos.
    There is also an exceedingly rare right-hand version of this grip.

    (for the rare enthusiast of the Plaubel 6x10cm Veriwide camera, it was made to use the Rollei TLR grip and strap. I have not yet seen one other than mine using it. Photos available.)
