    Hi, I am new to this site in the UK. If anyone hears of a really nice 7 x 5 camera, esp Linhof (late model) or original Gandolfi do let me know... Dennis

    Dennis,
    I didn't want you to think everyone is ignoring you. I know of a New York dealer who has a 5x7 Technica which seems to be in good shape. I think the price was $1,500, though I'm not certain. Contact me if you're interested.

    Technika 5x7's are often Tech. IIIs. I bought mine (witha a Tech IV back) locally from a used-Leica-dealer, and paid NOK 5000 (about $650) for it, including a 300mm/f:4.5 Xenar in exellent condition. I would hesitate to pay $1,500 for one, although they often reach this price on ebay.

    Thanks for the replies folks. I think I need one in the UK. Does anyone have info on the Canham all-metal versions? DennisDennis.
