Linhof Master Technika 3000 overview

  • 1Description

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.
Revolving back with locks for horizontal/vertical images.
