UPDATE: the Linhof Technorama is sold!
The time has come for me to sell my Linhof Technorama 617s III panoramic camera. I have often compared it to a piece of agricultural machinery, mostly because of the over-engineered way its built, but it is a an agricultural machine that does its job extremely well. The Linhof Technorama 617s III really is built like a tank and designed to perform in all conditions. It has no batteries, full manual wind on, mechanical shutters and manual focus. It shoots 4 exposures on a roll of 120 film (or 8 on a roll of 220), thats 4 exposures of 6cm wide by 17cm long, thats 11 times the area of a 35mm negative, imagine the potential of that!

The Linhof Technorama 617s III is the benchmark of all panoramic cameras, it’s the one all others are compared to, usually something like… “This camera is nearly as good as the Linhof Technorama 617s III”. Well this camera isn’t nearly as good, its every bit as good, it’s the real thing. For more information about it you can download the Linhof Technorama 617s III pdf from HERE>
So why sell it? because I’m moving onto a Hasselblad medium format digital, more on this later. Read the rest of this entry »
