Linhof III (or often known online as the inferior sibling to the Linhof IV)
I have been trudging my monorail around and wanted something that would fit in a large backpack. I believe this is a Linhof III. I liked that the camera has a recently replaced set of bellows. Good purchase? Foolish purchase?:)
First off I'm thinking of removing the rangefinder. I wasn't planning on using that anyway. Anyone have experience doing that?
Second I was thinking of stripping the leather and applying a new set from cameraleather.com. Any tips?
Last, any tips on cleaning the camera metal up in general? Obviously I was thinking of having a bit of fun with this. Thanks.
