Linhof Super Technika 4x5 inch Operating Manual
“Before you start using your new camera . . .
“... please take the time to get acquainted with its many unique features and smooth operations described in the following pages. Your SUPER TECHNIKA is ruggedly built in the best Linhof tradition. Yet, it is a precision instrument, and you should treat it as such. Make it a habit to protect your camera from dust, sand, or spray, and avoid rough handling. This will insure readiness, consistantly reliable performance, and lasting service. All movable parts are free from the necessity of continuous servicing. Keep gliding parts, such as upper track, always absolutely clean. You may apply a very thin film of chemically pure vaseline to the upper track. Under no circumstances should oil be used! After continuous intensive use, periodic inspection and servicing is as important for your camera as it is for your car. Your Linhof dealer or the nearest Linhof service department are always ready to serve you in every possible way.
“Please make sure that you receive together with your outfit the camera passport. The guarantee registration card contained therein should be filled in and mailed to Linhof immediately to validate the guarantee.
“Upon receipt of the registration card, a free sample copy of the famous quarterly magazine INTERNATIONAL PHOTO TECHNIK (GrossbildTechnik) will be mailed to you. In addition, our customer service department will send you information on new Linhof equipment etc. from time to time. We would also like to draw your attention to such specialized publications as the LINHOF PRACTICE, TECHNIQUES OF ADVERTISING PHOTOGRAPHY, and APPLIED PHOTOGRAPHY. Further information on the complete range of publications of large format photography may be obtained from VERLAG GROSSBILD-TECHNIK GMBH, 8 München 25, RupertMayer-Straße 45.”
