    Tripod Suitable for Linhof 5x7

    Hello. Can anyone recommend a tripod and tripod head suitable for a Linhof Super Technika IV 5x7? The Manfrotto 055XDB that I have always used for 35mm and medium format cameras holds my Intrepid 4x5 securely enough, but I'm guessing that the Linhof will require something more sturdy.

    Years ago a friend of mine used a Linhof Twin-Shank Profile tripod with his 5x7 and loved it. I borrowed it once and also loved it. A lot lighter that a Linhof Heavy Duty tripod. Think it had a Linhof Professional Pan Head II RPM on it, but that's from a 10+ year old memory.

    17lb capacity.

    It is the Expert, not the profile.

    Catalog #001317 with the sliding column. Different number for the model with the pneumatic center column.
    Small,geared center column was made for the 003317.

    With my Linhof Super Technika V - 5x7 - I rely on an older Gitzo Tele-Studex 4 with the aluminum legs. It has a the R4 head and the combination holds the Linhof rock solid. It is heavy and not meant for backpacking.

    I was thinking an old set of Studex 3 legs would do.

    The Studex 3 should allow for at least a weight of 20lbs which would be ample for your Tecknica. The Pro Studex will allow for the legs to be adjusted in various angled positions.
