I recently picked this up at a garage sale for less the 100$. Would love to hear some information about this camera. It came with lots of attachments and gadgets. Does anyone have experience with this? I cant tell what version it is. What are these worth? And why is mine red?

Definitely worth quite a bit more than $100. Try the large format forum for a better idea, I would assume that the red covering was a special edition as all tithe ones I've seen had been black.

Nice find. The Technika was the Rolls Royce of the 'technical field cameras'.

I think yours is a Super Technika III from the early 1950's.
Someone on one of the large format forums could probably give you a more
definitive ID on it - it's been a long time since I've seen one.

If you've any interest in large format film, it's definitely worth spending a little time/money on any necessary bellows or shutter repairs.

(The original bellows on those camera were leather which often develops pinholes with age. They're not hard to repair or replace. You might be lucky - the red leather on the body is probably a replacement for the original black covering, and maybe the original bellows were replaced or refurbished as well.)

You have no idea what you got your hands on

I've been ogling a technika since years but have never bitten due to 1000+ prices...

A new Linhof bellow costs much more than what you paid for the whole system
