I have a question regearding my Linhof 5x7 Technika camera. I want to add a Linhof hand grip to the camera, and see quite a few for sale on the used market. Do I need to find a hand grip that is made specifically for the 5x7 Technika, or are all hand grips compatible with both the 4x5 and 5x7 cameras? Thanks for the help.

All grips are the same except for the length of the cable release and the length of the mounting bracket. Providing they are the same generation. The current series of grips (past 30 years) do not fit the earlier mounting brackets. And the current cable releases do not fit the hole on the earlier grips unless you enlarge the hole.
