    Master Technika IV 5x4

    Dear Forum

    A very dear friend of mine would like to buy me an "enduring photographic gift" to further my love of mainly landscape photography. So I thought It cant get any more enduring than a good used Master Technika can it! I have never seen let alone used such a camera and know next to nothing about them except their reputation for precision and build quality, but the thought of working with a camera that will likely last a life time is very appealing indeed. I know there are many opinions about cameras but what do think about this..... a very fine and enduring friendship embodied in a very fine and enduring view camera.

    Any thoughts shared would be most welcome.
    Best kev

    Ps: If I was hiking a long way I would use my 5x4 Tachi.

    Also would it be an easy matter to remove the anatomical hand grip from a Master VI not a Master IV as the heading suggests without being left with something unsightly once removed?

    Well you can't buy a Master Technika IV. The IV was an earlier model discontinued in the 1950s and replaced by the V which was discontinued in the 70s and that was replaced by the MAster Technika. There are three Master Technika models. The Master Technika Classic; the Master Technika 2000 and the recently released Master Technika 3000. But there never was a Master Technika IV or a Master Technika V.

    Hello Kev,

    Think we're both looking at the same camera.

    Hi Kev,

    it's the same with Intel's microprocessors, after the 486 they named the 586 Pentium. Linhof named the Technika VI "Master Technika". This is the camera on your pictures.

    There is an instruction for older Technika's http://www.largeformatphotography.in.../technika.html

    The Master is much more versatile, specially with wide-angle lenses.
