    Red Bellows Society - New Facebook Group

    Hello:

    Just for fun, we've started a Facebook group called "Red Bellows Society."

    The only requirement to join the group is that you own a camera with red bellows.

    It's all very informal, and membership is on the honor system. After joining, please post a picture of your camera (or better yet, you with your camera.)

    So those of you with red-belows Kodak 2Ds, B&Js, Wisners, Folding Kodaks, and every other red bellows cameras are encouraged to join.

    Just go to Facebook and type "Red Bellows Society" in the search engine. You'll find us.

    Cordially,

    William

    I never thought I would have anything to do with Facebook, but the red bellows on my Wisner made me do it.

    .... this sounds bigoted and exclusionary.


    How about if you have a red 4x5 pinhole camera? It has interchagable focal lengths which is like a bellows.

    Me either. Then my kids wanted to play on Farmtown! I joined and am now in touch with people I have not talked to in many, many years!

    All my bellows are black though.

    Sounds like a case of Red Bellows envy!

    My Wisner 7x17 has red bellows. Never could warm up to that annoying red mass. It's just wrong and a stupid color for bellows if you ask me... Say, do you tips in your group on how to paint the thing black?
