Thread: unusual Linhof Technika III?

  1. #1

    unusual Linhof Technika III?

    I have a Linhof Technika III 4x5 which I believe is a bit unusual. According to the research I have done it is a late model III (angled front door, focus wheels on both sides of the bed, serial number 53xxx.) However it is a dark red in col or. That is the leather and the metal parts of the camera are red instead of the traditional black. Because of the quality of the work on the leather and the me tal, it appears to have been done at the factory and not by an individual as a m odification.

    Any information or comments would be greatly appreciated

    Not that this helps but.....

    I have seen two photographs of two different photographers, an Australian and an American, from Maryland - both with Red Linhofs, no idea what vintage, model or size though, I'm very ignorant on Linhof- lore. The American was featured in "Annapolis" or "Baltimore" magazine sometime in the early 90's and I can't remember where I saw the Aussie, possibly in a book on Australian Akubra hats...

    Hi guys, a friend of mine bought this at a flea market last weekend.
    Anybody knows anything about this specific model?

    For sure not a Tech III, at least a Tech IV or more recent, real experts should be able to define..

    best,

    I have owned and seen a few factory red Linhofs - but not that RED. The front standard of your camera is Tech lV. The front bed looks later, maybe a Tech V due to the focusing knobs and paint finish.

    Looks like the 150-year Jubillee version of the Technika 3000 sold in limited quantities in 2007 forward. The Linhof crest should indicater so if it is this model.

    Thanks for all replies.

    it does look a lot like the anniversary 3000 on this page : http://www.linhof.de/history_e.html

    I'll ask my friend to check the linhof crest for proof. Do you know what it should say?
