    Linhof repair

    Where can I get reliable repair/servicing for my heavily-used 4x5 Linhof Master Technika?

    The "official" repair agent for Linhof in the US is:

    Martin Arndt
    Marflex Service
    117 Anchorage Rd.
    Havelock, NC 28523
    252-652-4401
    Marflex@aol.com

    Martin stocks Linhof parts and has the necessary equipment to calibrate the rangefinder and grind cams for lenses that don't come with them.

    Call Martin before you send anything - sometimes he's backed up.

    Marflex moved to NC a few years ago.

    Samy's in L.A. perhaps, but Marflex is very good to deal with. They are friendly, responsive and not bothered by little orders.
    In my case it was for a set of new feet for my Linhof tripod.

    Bob Salomon posts in the LF Forum that Nippon Photoclinic in Manhattan will now service Linhof and Wista cameras in the US, in addition to Marflex in North Carolina--
