    Help identifying Linhof Technika Large format camera

    Hi there,


    I am trying to identify Linhof Technika Large format camera in order to help a friend ind a good home for it. I know a bit about cameras but absolutely nothing about LF gear.

    I have a attached an image that I hope this esteemed forum can help me identify which Master Technika it may be.

    Thank you in advance,

    David

    Yup, what Bill said. Not a Master Technika at all, it's a Super Technika V.

    Super Technika V I can tell you when it was made from the serial number which is on the accessory shoe.

    +1 to a Tech V
    bought a similar one used this summer - outstanding machine! your specimen looks like it is in great shape and if the bellows is free of pinholes, it should easily bring in $1000 or more. Everyone should try owning a Technika!

    Yes, it is a Super Technika model V. Check that auction site for completed, sold auctions for values.

    One thing that effects value is whether it has the proper lens cam. The rangefinder is not useful
    unless the cam matches the camera and lens. If you wish we can find pictures to show you how
    to check it and what to look for.

    Bob S? Care to explain for the 1000th time the cam, lens, camera issue?

    Looks like it does have a cam (you can just see the image of a piece of a shiny thing through the big hole on the front track).

    For the V model, the focusing cam should have a number on it which matches the serial number of the lens.

    Extend the bed till it clears the cam. The cam is stamped with the focal length and the serial number of the lens that it was cut for. If it was cut for the V or later then there will not be a serial number on the bottom of the cam. If there is a serial number on the bottom, or if the top number does not match your lens or the focal length on the cam is different then the focal length of your lens then the cam will not work properly with your camera.

    On the focusing rail of your camera there should be pop-up infinity stops. That is the point that you have to pull the front standard out to to properly reach infinity with a cam coupled lens. Your cam probably has a colored number for the focal length. If so you use the infinity stop that is the same color.
