    Not to forget the rarest 18x24 Technika from 1938/39, only a few manufactured. Huge compared to he standard Technika 9x12.
    weight is 10,1 kilograms without lens.

    Putting this weight in perspective, the Calumet C-1, when made of aluminum (vs. magnesium) was 18 pounds or 8.2 kg. Yet this Linhof was equipt with a "frame finder and rear sight." Anyone up for hand holding that weight?

    Since only about 10 were made you may have pointed out one reason why.

    Thanks for putting together a lot of great information. I seem to have become a Linhof fan-boy of sorts - I have seven of them at the moment. 2 x 3 to 8 x 10 Kardan Bi. I keep thinking of adding a 70, but my wife thinks I should be thinning the herd rather than adding to it. She's probably right - at 81 they're getting hard to carry.

    Hi Jim, you can never have too many Linhof's. They have been my passion for about 10 years now since getting a beat up 4x5 III. I too have several cameras and if there is any culling to be done it will be of the non-Linhof cameras. The 70 is a favorite of mine I have both the Press70 and Technika70 and yes both are very heavy for medium format cameras, not something for an all day out kind of event.

    The best thing about my old beater Tek III is for me, that as a shooter, it automatically narrows my "camera for the day" decision as it's a folder, packs well in backpack, ugly enough to not baby around worrying, and we developed a "relationship/understanding" what we can do together...

    The consideration that does come up is camera seems not unreasonably heavy by itself, but in the backpack with holders and usual accessories, suddenly feels like there's a cinderblock in there...

    I might prefer a Graflex for long walks, but hooked on triple extension bellows and more movements available on it...

    rangefinder focusing was central to Linhof designs along the way. To what extent did the designers view the Technica to be a tripod camera that offered movements, versus a handheld, rangefinder based camera. techzpod mobdro download

    I prefer my Pre War 5X7 LINHOF all metal folding camera

    It is very lightweight, the leather bellows exquisite and perfect
