    The Technika III is a fine camera, but has been replaced by the IV, V, & MT with increasingly better features and usability. The Technika III is about half the price of a similarly outfitted IV.

    At some point the 4x5 Technika was available with a black paint exterior finish rather that the traditional chrome.
