    How much for these technika's?

    Some one is offering a Technika for Euro 950. (1295 USD)
    Is that a reasonable price for a, according to Bob Salomon a 1964 V version?
    The seller says its well used and well serviced.

    And what about this offer http://www.fotoapparatuur.nl/Linhof/.../Ad131036.html


    Please give me your opinion

    Greetings

    You need to double-check the plastic front lift gears on the V. I have a V and a Master and *both* have trouble in this regard. The gear teeth get sheared off in use (misuse?) of that front lever. Not cheap to fix and easily missed when examining a camera to sell.

    Don't really know about the price. Others will chime in tomorrow USA-time with more informed thoughts in that regard.

    Hallo Peter,

    That V seems to be priced sharp, IF the lever is ok as Darin pointed out. The TechIV seems over priced to me. The 90mm SA looks to be mounted in a Compur00, which was nothing but trouble on mine (but that could be that specific one), a nuisance with a Compur 00 is that there is no pre-view lever, so for composing you have to put the lens on B and hold it there with a cable release.

    Did you check out Marktplaats, there were a couple of Technika's recently,

    good luck,

    Cor

    @Bill - thanks

    @Cor- good to know about these compurs. I checked marktplaats.
    Foto abro sells master technika's as good as new (Euro 1995) is that reasonable?

    Peter,

    I do not know if it is your first entry into LF. If so consider that you also need a lens (and quickly want more), lens boards, a tripod, a loupe, film holders etc..it adds up quickly.

    To get started there are cheaper alternatives, depending on what you exactly want to do with the camera. I started out with a Calumet c400 (for sale right now on Marktplaats ), that I got a Tech III which I have used for more than 10 years, and I recently ""upgraded" to a Linhof Color which didn't broke the bank..;-)..


    (don't ask about my other camera's though.. ..)

    Good luck,

    Cor

    @ Cor- Its not my first entry into LF, I own a cambo SC with a 210mm. Its ok but its not realy portable and i don't realy need extreme movements. Most of the gear, I already have, except for the lensboard.
    It might be a good idea to have a closer look at the V.

    A Technika is a wonderful camera BUT for field use it's heavy and somewhat clunky to use (and costs a fortune to have lenses coupled to the rangefinder). Since you already have a monorail you might consider a much less expensive and lighter camera for field use, (such as a Crown or Super Graphic, or Busch Pressman).
