    I’d like to sell my 5x7 Linhof Tech III. This camera is in excellent condition. The leather is nice and not peeling anywhere. All movements function beautifully. No missing knobs or screws. The bellows are excellent. I’ve installed a new Hopf borosilicate ground glass and have an identical spare. The ground glass cover/viewing hood is missing. Includes one original lensboard and three homemade aluminum lensboards. I’d like $1050 shipped/paypal’d for this (conus).

    I have some beads that I would willingly trade for it. My entire collection even!

    Thanks for the sighs guys. It is a darn nice camera. Heavy, but bullet proof and the movements are so smooth. This one does not tilt forward on the front, just backwards. The bed drops though, which, along with rise, allows for pseudo front tilt (see attached photo). The back has some swing & tilt. All four back corners move independently. The lensboards are just flat aluminum squares. I work for a sheet metal shop and cut them myself. I could do a few more for the buyer if they need them.

    Siiiiiiigh...So sad that anyone who ever owned a camera of this quality and beauty would lose parts for it. If it had the back door, a rangefinder, and an original lens or two, I'd be all over it! (Or was it originally a Technika and not a Super Technika? I'd think the latter, as you can see the RF mounting plate and the holes.)

    It was in this condition when I bought it. I've been looking everywhere for the "back door", but have had no luck. I have no interest in a rangefinder for it, but I can see how that would appeal to others.
