    Will Arca Swiss B bellows fit a F with 171 frames????

    Dear alle, tried to find an answer to this through the search function of the forum, but did't find a comprehensive answer.

    Yes or no? Will the older Arca B bellows fit a 171mm Arca Swiss F?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Heinrich,

    This post explains it very clearly: http://www.largeformatphotography.in...le-with-F-line

    The older bellows of the A, B and C (Oschwald) model cameras will not fit F-line camera.

    Kumar is correct as the frames of the A,B, and C models, are of a polycarbonite material and have a totally different latching mechanism than the F line and also M line from 1984 forward.The Fline and Mline of 1984 forward used Metal bellows frames.

    Thanks to both of you. I was reading this: http://www.largeformatphotography.in...-Swiss-Model-B

    and got confused, because someone was saying it would be possible to adapt to the 171
