Erratum: An Unfortunate Oversight
We regret that we left out the Linhof line of large-format
cameras, in the August 2000 feature on large-format cameras.
Since 1887, Linhof, based in Munich, Germany, has been serving photographers with a quality line of large-format equipment.
Linhof recently released the Linhof M 679 for digital application. A dual system designed for both digital workflow and classic film photography, the M 679 is a new compact camera with logical technique for control of perspective, correction of converging verticals, depth-of-field control, and creative movements. A complete range of accessories permits easy handling and offers compatibility with commonly used medium-format systems as well as to digital scanning backs via an adapter.
Linhof is distributed in the U.S. by HP Marketing and Shriro.
