The built-in wide-angle focusing track can now comfortably be used by a turning knob which is placed at the outer right side of the camera body. For extremely short focal lengths 38, 47 and 58 mm one infinity stop is provided for all 3 focal lengths thanks to individual lensboard adjustments. The baseboard can now be dropped to a forth notch enabling vertical images without vignetting.
Linhof has refreshed their 4x5 metal field camera with the release of the Linhof Master Technika 3000 Camera. It improves upon the older Master Tech 2000 by adding a fourth drop position to the drop bed, thus allowing for more movements and less vignetting. Also, the focusing track for extreme wide-angle lenses has been moved from the inside of the camera body to an easily-accessed knob positioned on the side of the body. Now, the Master Technika 3000 can utilize superwide lenses with new infinity stops at the 38mm, 47mm, and 58mm positions to accommodate these lenses.

The Master Technika 3000 is a more compact, non-rangefinder version of the classic Linhof Master Technika. It comes with a wrist strap, a folding focusing hood and a ground-glass grid screen. It does not include the lens, lensboard, grip, fresnel lens or viewfinder. It is a technical baseboard camera of the highest quality with a sturdy die-cast body that closes to compact dimensions. It features: a triple-extension drop bed, ratcheting lift lever for front standard rise, an international Graflock spring back with revolving swing frame, a lift-up flap on top of the camera housing for increased wide-angle efficiency, a built-in wide-angle focusing track for extreme wide-angle lenses 38-72mm (movements with bed in fourth notch dropped position), and a removable accessory cold shoe mount that reveals a hidden tripod thread. This tripod socket can come in handy when a photographer wants to position the camera upside-down for more optical variances and movements.

Front rise can be used as drop when camera in mounted upside-down, and some drop can be generated with the camera in the normal position by dropping the bed and bringing the front standard back to vertical.
Built-in triple extension allows 15.7" of extension.
Extra tripod socket (hidden beneath top shoe) allows the camera to mount upside-down, simplifying lens-drop.
Built-in wide-angle focusing device for lenses 38-72mm—primarily for use with optional rollfilm adapters (i.e. 6x6, 6x7, 6x9 and 6x12cm) or digital backs.
When using the built-in wide-angle focusing device on the Technika 3000, Linhof recommends a specially spaced lensboard (#001159) for focal lengths of 55, 58, 65, and 72mm. Lenses from 38-47mm will work on a standard flat lensboard.
Omni-directional swing back for extension of swing/tilt movements and perspective corrections.

    Reviews: Re: Linhof 4X5 Master Technika V (nt)

    Now we're talking...

    I have an S3 which i have used for landscapes. Shoot RAW if you like ... do a little photoshop work and you can churn out some great stuff. It's quick and easy and the job's done.

    Or you can shoot with a Linhof (drum roll please)... slow, clunky, heavy, inverted images, dark slides ... a lot of pain and then finally you take that photo ... wrrrrrrr 'Click' from those beautiful Schneider lenses.... wind on the film and do it again (or change the double dark).

    I'm away on holidays at the moment and I've taken both my S3 and my Linhof Master Technika V. I use the best nikon glass on my S3 (17-35 2.8, 28-70 2.8, 80-200 2.8 AFS lenses) and the quality doesn't even come close to what i can get from my Linhof.

    To those of us who can remember ... there is nothing more satisfying and simply breathtaking than looking at a perfectly exposed 120 tranny on a lightbox ... scrunching down over the loupe and checking out the minute detail in a landscape for example - digital just doesn't come close.

    I'm not bragging and you're welcome to your opinions but I don't think i'm alone when I say that you/I can get more detail out of a $10 roll of transparency film than a $10 000 digital camera.

    I've been in a position where I had to shoot an ad campaign for a client and shot it in both digital (raw) and 120 transparency. In both cases, 90 x 60cm prints were made ... the digital prints were nice but when compared side by side to the drum scanned images from film ... no way.

    So to the original poster - buy whatever digital film camera you can afford or whichever feels better in your hands. If you're just starting out, don't worry about the technical details ... sharpness, noise, fps, etc etc ... all red herrings. Learn to take photographs ... sit in the same spot all day and observe the light change and don't worry too much about buttons, dials and flashing lights.

    Your camera will give you perfectly acceptable results for the type of camera that it is but it's not in the big league. I don't know what type of quality a MF digital back will give you. I'd really love to try out a Leaf back or something like that but I haven't had the chance so I just have to read the propaganda and look at the sample photos... (sigh)

    Anyway, tomorrow is meant to be stormy so i'll be at the beach with my Linhof and a bag of Velvia and Agfa APX25- trying to keep the whole lot dry while I get soaking wet ...

    enjoy! (and everyone - get out there and take some photos)


    ps: the terms "Hassie" and "RB67" refer to two medium format cameras. Hassie is a Hasselblad which shoots 6x6cm square format images and RB67 is a Mamiya Revolving Back camera that shoots 6x7cm images.
