    Looks like a 5x7 tailboard camera. There is an identifying plate at the top. The lens usually has some kind of engraving on it. You would need to get a closer look at those markings to identify the...
  3. Re: Linhof lens board does not fit to Linhof Master Technika!

  9. Re: New LF camera: what about a Plaubel Peco Profia PL1?

    The camera you are thinking of is a very recent model in the Plaubel Peco Profia series of monorail view cameras. It's probably the most recent, not much more than ten years old. Most models in the...
