I have Just made the big leap into LF (my god this thing weighs a ton...) and am a bit unsure as to what kind of dinosaur I have here in front of me. I suspect it has been made up of a few different cameras as it has just come out of the re pair shop.
The basepalate says Linhof Technika, and on the top it has the serial number 731 99, the front rise is facilitated by the three knobs as it is I beleive on the I V according to the description by Q. Tuan Luong in the article on these pages. I t also has a lift up flap to alow more front rise as on the body housing as per the "Master".
The leather is a sort of light grey-green colour.
Does anyone have any idea what this thing could be, especialy as regards to camm ing and interchanging lenses, I will eventually hope to cam an 80 and a 135.
Thanks to everyone for the help, I am a bit worried about what to do with this b ig chunk of metal!
