I cant, but if you post your query in the "Linhof serial Numbers" thread then Bob Salomon (who I think is Linhof's US sales rep) may be able to. You might also make his task easier by telling him the size (eg 6x9, 4x5 etc).

Cheers

That serial number is for a 1967/68 Super Technika V 5x7 camera.

Thank you Bob and Carey.
How late did Linhof make 5x7 Technikas?

Thank you Bob and Carey.
How late did Linhof make 5x7 Technikas?

Till 1986. Today they make no 57 cameras of any type.

Hi Bob.

What year for a 5x7 Linhof Technika number 140529 ?

Is a 5x7 model more or less sought after than a 4x5 ?

Thanks.

1962/63 Technika IV.

Far, far, far less demand. If the demand for the 23 and the 57 was near the 45 they would not have been discontinued.

Greetings Bob,

I have an older Technika III 4x5, serial number 32649. It has a rotating Linhof spring back and I was wondering if conversion to a Graflok back is possible or not. I would like to shoot 120/220 roll film backs and with my present back only the Calumet C type of back can be used.

Thanks,

1953 Technika III. The slip-in Linhof Rapid Rollex backs fit this model. They are 6x7 format. There are no parts or accessories for this camera to change the type of back you have but the Rapid Rollex will work.

Hi guys,
I'll try to express my self correctly ( but English is not my best friend)
anyway
the point is, 2 years ago I bought a Linhof TEchnika in Belgium with the SN 32716
I think this a technika III, am I right ? how can we know the date of the model ?

could someone help me, I would like to know if I can find a knuckle/ "bail pivot" to replace the one that i broke (sorry I'm not sur for the term than I 've found an image to show what piece it is http://www.galerie-photo.com/images/decentrement-arriere-sur-te.jpg (http://www.galerie-photo.com/images/decentrement-arriere-sur-te.jpg)
it the same time I would like to know if it's possible to replace the 4 originals knuckles by 4 new longer, to allow the camera to be more "flexible"
I also need to change the ground glass, i've found this on ebay does it fit perfectly on a linhof technika III ?

Bob,
My father-in-law has a Linhof Technika he bought in Rhodesia in the early 1960's. He has the whole kit(suit case) with all the bells & whistles( lens, grip, filters etc etc). Can you help with the identification of the version. I believe the SN # is 81404. Can you tell me if it is a IV or V as it has the tan leather on the camera.
Many Thanks
Wallace

Hi Bob,
Would you identify year of manufacture of two Linhof Press 70's?

older one is 9740
newer one is 1841072 has strange horizontal wind handle on side.

Parts look compatible and I hope to make one working example out of the two.

My copy of "The Linhof Camera Story" says the Press 70 was made from 1963 to 1979.

Thanks.

9740 = 1964
1841072 = 1968

Hi Bob

I know this is a place for Linhof serial numbers but I'm desperate. I want to replace the bellows on my Linhof Technika III Version 5, S/N 55487 and I'm asked if it's bellows with an off centre front (no clue what that means) and they also also need front and rear sizes just confirm correct model. What sizes and how do I measure these ? I'm a new user of the Linhof and actually a newcomer to large format photography.
I hope I didn't upset anyone by posting this here. Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks
Alan
