    Before I spend $200 on a film holder, for which i have the Fuji 100B45 film, can someone advise me if the PA-45 film holder will fit the Linhof? Thanks in advance!

    It won't fit a tech V which I believe is basically the same thing as the master.

    OP,

    do you have a camera rental facility near where you live? Might want to check to see if they rent those out...

    I'd like to see if it would work, cause the M.T. 2000/3000 is my dream camera :smile:. so I'm interested as well.

    Are you sure about that? I haven't tried it myself yet, but it is supposed to work with any back that has Graflok-type slides, as the Technika backs have.

    If it works on the IV it should work on the Master as well. I'm going to order one from Amazon ($204) and give it a whirl. Thanks for the info....

    take off the gg panel, use Graflok, PA-45 works great on my Tech IV.

    I will also confirm that the PA-45 fits the last Linhof 13x18cm to 9x12cm reducing back.

    But then don't you have to put the ground glass on and off for every shot where you recompose the image or refocus? Swapping the ground glass and the PA-45 must get very tiresome.

    Then you focus and compose with range finder, instead of the ground glass, if you feel tiresome.
