Linhof 70 Camera Complete 3 Lenses With Cams Rollex Backs. Complete Linhof 70 medium format commercial camera. Includes three lenses, Linhof Rollex 6x9mm film holder, Super Rollex 56x72mm film holder, dedicated grip, Linhof cable release. The lenses are Schneider Super Angulon 65mm f8.0, Schneider Xenar 100mm f3.5, and Tele-Technikon 180mm f4.5.
All of these lenses are Linhof select optics, which means they were all tested, and passed by Linhof for best quality. Also important is these lenses are all serial number matched to the three position cam. The cams are very hard to find since they almost always part from the camera body and lenses over the years. This camera was previously owned and used by a newspaper photographer who worked in Texas during the 1960's. We think it was a one owner camera, but it shows a lot of use.
We will detail all the repairs needed below in this copy. Linhof Schneider Super Angulon 65mm F8.0, Synchro-Compur shutter MXV settings. Mounted on recessed Technika 70 lens board, plastic Schneider rear lens cap. This lens was made in 1963. Speeds were erratic and slow.
Flash MXV do work, although self timer (V setting) was sticky. No defects noted to glass. Linhof Schneider Xenar 100mm F3.5 Synchro-Compur shutter MX settings.
Mounted on Technika 70 lens board. F-stops f/3.5 to f/32. MX flash settings work correctly.
Shutter speeds are slow and erratic. The front plate is loose. Linhof Tele-Technikon lens, 180mm f4.5, in Synchro-Compur shutter. Mounted on Technika 70 lens board, includes metal rear lens cap.
F-stops f/4.5 to f/45. This is a scarce lens, which was made by Rodenstock for Linhof cameras.Shutter was sticky, and could not be tested. TECHNICAL NOTES: We tested this camera extensively. The track is stiff, but working. The rangefinder was tested and that did work. The built in light meter is a selenium cell, and read three stops overexposure. Camera movements work, but all need lubrication. The extension back does function, but a locking spring is missing or broken, so it takes some effort to open and close it. The Rollex camera backs both worked in our tests, but they show a lot of cosmetic wear. Checked bellows integrity for light leaks, none found. Just from previous use, there is rub to the paint, such as on the back of the top viewfinder. The viewfinder windows need cleaning.
The camera needs cleaning, and new lubrication. Leather handle broken, grip worn. See details above about the lens conditions, etc.
