    A 4 min "quick review" video of the building process is available now at this link (first video). Please note that the kit is offered with a "100% money back guarantee". If did your best to make it and it didn't come out as you expected, I will refund your purchase price.

    I am interested because I want to build a 8x10 camera. I was reading this forum for a while but I don't have a camera and want one now I want to know if I should make bellows first and then build camera or first build bellows then make camera. Some people say build camera around bellows.

    I went to your website and it says parts will be available. I will need hardware. Are you selling hardware?

    Opinions are divided, you are the one that needs to decide. I will offer hardware at some point, but right now the bellows and the ground glass kits are the only items available.

    I'm assuming you are using some sort of computer program to design the bellows pattern. Is it possible to obtain just the pattern printout at a reduced cost? I already have liner material and fabric for the outer cover and have experience in building (square) bellows.

    I'm interested in a replacement for an 8x20 Korona and would like to have a bellows that extends to ~ 48." Is that possible with your system?
