The Linhof Camera Story

Day and night inquiries are reaching Linhof in Munich from all over the world – by e-mail, fax, phone: What’s the year of production of my camera? What’s the difference in my Linhof compared to later models of the same type? Can I use modern accessories including digital backs? These are some of the questions raised by professionals, discriminating amateurs, photo dealers and camera collectors. The Linhof history is dating back more than 128 years now. Thousands of photographers worldwide are presently using new or previously owned Linhof cameras. Thousands of collectors are still storing their “old” cameras in show cases. This second edition of the Linhof Camera Book is complimented by new developments and tailor-made products of the last decade thus combining a long history with the technique of the new millenium. This publication will show in many pictures and comments the development of Linhof cameras starting with the first Technika up to our today’s designs. A “must” for all Linhof-photographers, collectors or people generally interested in photography. (english/german, 144 pages, printed in multi-colour and duplex, hardcover).
