  1. Re: Seeking a newer 4x5 camera for mostly landscape

    I agree that it makes sense to get a V onwards (after 1963). If you really need the extra movements (architecture etc) then look at a Master from 1972 onwards. That’s still a multi decade window of...
  2. Re: Seeking a newer 4x5 camera for mostly landscape

    One way to get a ‘new’ Technika at a small fraction of the current list price is to buy a serviced camera from a Linhof dealer. If the bellows and ground glass are replaced and all of the mechanical...
  3. Re: Metal vs Wood cameras - advantages/disadvantages

    I went through the decision earlier this year. I see the pros and cons as follows:

    Wooden folder:
    - lighter to carry
    - less durable
    - slower to set up
    - can buy one brand new for a reasonable...

    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    I recently picked up this 1968 Super Technika V from Linhof Studio. It has been fully serviced and has new bellows and ground glass. Product shot by Linhof Studio.

    Re: tools to remove anatomical grip on Technika V

    Thanks. I appreciate good quality tools, so will likely pick up a set.
    I am sure there will be other applications in the future where I will need these.

    Re: tools to remove anatomical grip on Technika V

    I ended up installing the ProtonVPN app on my ipad so I could click on your link.
    Just confirming that it is the same product as noted above. Expensive, but looks like the quality is top notch.

    Thanks. Annoyingly the link doesn’t work because I am not in USA. It just sends me to the local home page and there are 80,000 products on the site!

    It would be much appreciated if you could...

    Re: tools to remove anatomical grip on Technika V

    Apart from being large the grip does add significant weight. I weighed mine at 275 grams without mounting plate, whereas the hand strap with mounting plate and screws is 47g. I suspect that the...

    Is that the 18-piece thin-tip bit set for ~$80? The link diverted to the home page of Brownells uk site.

    Re: Technika folded with lens attached

    It’s not the current board. I am guessing the lens and board are about 30 years old. The new board alone costs more than a nice used lens including board.

    Edit, the lens is ~40 years old. Serial...

    Re: Technika folded with lens attached

    My Technika came with a coupled Schneider Symmar S 150mm f5.6 on a recessed board. The incremental price was not much and I thought it would be interesting to try using the rangefinder. The cost to...

    Re: Technika folded with lens attached

    It almost certainly would mount in the reverse position since the rear element is quite small. But the convenience of using a different lens cap and not having to reverse the lens far outweighs the...

    Re: Technika folded with lens attached

    I have just purchased a Super Technika V and have just tested my Nikkor W 150mm f5.6 on a flat lens board.
    I can confirm that this lens folds into the camera with no lens cap or with a centre-pinch...

    Re: Linhof Master Technika Question

    I find this a bit surprising. The triple extension bellows on a Technika should have a maximum extension of 430mm. Playing around on this calculator

    Another feature I thought of is an image display mode to help utilise the zone system for choosing exposure. The grey scale tonal range would be...

    Re: iPhone Viewfinder app

    Hi Adam,

    Awesome app!
    I haven’t read the whole thread so sorry if this has already been asked. Could I request a function to quickly visualise the effect of standard B/W filters? Ideally...
