    Schiansky vs Linhof... Were they partners or just neighbors in Munich?

    I thought Schiansky was just the tripods but I saw my first Schianskycamera today:

    https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item...iansky-1948-50
    "Universal Atelierkamera" by Schiansky, 1948-50
    Schiansky, München. All-metal camera, plate size 18 x 24 cm, Voigtländer Heliar 4,5/360 mm (no. 2745722), Luc shutter US10 No. 38235. - Only 12 cameras in this series are believed to have been produced. - Very rare!

    I dont believe this Schiansky is a camera fabricated at the Kamerawerke München. Very different architecture. Copare that to the Perka, or Silar or Staeble cameras, all almost identical to the early Linhofs.
    stay healthy!

    Yes I agree it does not have any of the hallmarks of a linhof camera. They did make rather similar looking tripod heads though..
