Linhof Technika 70 Outfit. 6×7 on 120 £300.00 ono. New bellows have now been fitted. Please contact me if you are interested in buying this camera. I would prefer the camera to be collected by the potential buyer as they will be able to inspect it before making the purchase.
The Outfit comprises the following:
Linhof Technika 70 body.
Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm f2.8.
Schneider 53mm f4 Super Angulon.
Schneider 180mm f4 Tele Arton.
2x Linhof Super Rollex 56×72 (6×7) backs.
3x Linhof 6 1/2×9 double dark slide.
Focusing screen and hood.
Hand grip/cable release.
Bonus Linhof Cine Rollex 56×72 (Bulk 70mm) untested back.
New bellows have been fitted. The body has a few issues. On both sides there is a lever to release the rear movements, the plastic tabs are broken, these have now been removed. The back comes out and is locked in place by the four back knobs so not an issue. The range finder has some fungus on the optics/mirrors. Its not bad and I have cleaned all the parts I could easily get to. The image is bright and appears to be pretty accurate. Its quite a complex camera and you need to have everything in the right place for the rangefinder to work. The rangefinder cam wheel is stuck on the 80mm position, it did rotate correctly to the other 2 positions but for some reason has stopped. You can get around this quite easily by removing the cam and setting it manually each time. Being a view camera with lots of movements I would think most people would use the ground glass screen anyway. Cosmetically the body is rough but appears the be mechanically sound.
All the lenses had fungus but I have cleaned and treated all the optics. However, there are marks on the coatings. I have serviced the slow speed trains on all 3 shutters.
The 80mm has coating marks on the rear optic, cleaning marks on the front optics and coating marks also. The shutter is working well. The 53mm lens has some haze in the rear optics but the shutter is also working well. The 180mm lens has coating marks on the front optic and the rear and a few on the rear of the front cluster, the shutter is also working well. I have serviced the slow speed trains on all 3 shutters.
The 2 Super Rollex backs seem to be working ok, I have run dummy film in both to check the frame spacing, all seems ok. There is a black one and a brown one, the brown one is quite rough but the black one is much better, it only has the chrome pealing from the wind on lever.
The meter works on the camera and is accurate. Also, I tested the lenses on the ground glass screen and they all focus on infinity when using the correct colour coded lens stops on the bed. For the 53mm lens the bed has to be dropped down and slid back to do this.
There is no warranty on this camera outfit, but it is priced accordingly. I have tried to describe it as accurately possible.
