    Why? The difference between 3 and 4 is much less with 13x18 than in the 9x12 cameras. I'm not really sure what the difference is, to be honest - and in practical use I don't think there is any.

    I would agree with Ole on the tech 3 vs tech 4. The change in features with the 5x7/13x18 was a gentle evolution, rather than anything revolutionary.

    If you compare the picture you have with the photos I uploaded of my tech 4 here, you will see that, even if the Technika for sale is technically a 3 (from its serial number), it is almost identical to my 4.

    Point taken.

    Steve - from the pictures, it looks exactly like your 5x7 tech.

    Believe i worried a little of the bellows of the Tech 3 - the one I got is spattered with holes - but i fixed that with black gaffertape.

    Went out to take the first pictures, and it worked like a charm. Soon she will have a younger sister ;-)

    I believe the one I had was a III, with a IV back: http://www.bruraholo.no/Cameras/Linh...nhof_Tech.html

    Yes, I'm sure that was a III. The one big difference during the evolution of the III, was the replacement of the bail back for loading film holders (as shown in this photo), with a spring back. I remember talking about this with Paula at Linhof & Studio in the UK.

    But the bail back is great - it adds a little weight, but it makes loading film holders without moving the whole thing, tripod included, a lot easier!

    I agree. I sometimes look at Richard Ritters site, and wonder whether it would be worth seeing if he could convert it. Or find a poor, dead III on the auction site, and use the back off that!
