    Lens Plate 4 Linhof

    I gave myself another headache: I bought what I thought was a genieric lens oplate to use on my Linhof 4x5 [I think is a 3 or 4 model ] serial # 61233 build 1957 !
    It turns out the plate is larger than my other lens plates that came with the camera ?
    what is the correct lens plate for my camera?????
    here is the info I went by to get this lens board [Wista Lens Board Linhof Lens Board Copal 0 - Brand New]

    Thank you very much for help on the info for me:

    The serial number from that page implies III. The build date IV. Hell if I know.

    The Wista type board should be 96mmx98mm. That's what most people mean when they say Linhof style board. If that doesn't fit I guess you have a III. If you do you need a III type board.

    You can tell whether you have a III or a IV by checking the front standard to see if the lens can be tilted forward. If it can be then you have a IV. If it can't then you have a III (front forward tilt came in with the IV and of course all subsequent Technikas).
