On the first glance the MPP is a look alike of the Pacemaker Speed Graphic. However the fine metal finishing and the sturdy controls of the standard movements are the top of design and without doubt comparable or even better than the Linhoff Technica. The MPP 4x5 is a fantastic well made camera of the highest standards.
