    That's a linhof technika. Probably a V or a master

    A Linhof Technica III or IV. The front standard doesn't look thick enough to be a V.

    I concur, it's definitely not a V (we would have seen the little arm to "jack up" the lens standard (for lens rise) from this position) and it doesn't look like a III (which is usually festooned with a bit more chrome) so I'm 99% sure it's a Linhof Technika IV.

    It's a Technika IV. So I moved the thread to "Large Format Cameras and Accessories". The Technika III had plate holders and a thinner back in the beginning, the Technika IV was always made for film.
