I recently purchased a focusing bellows for my Ebony camera and have been wonderfully pleased with the ease of use. The more familiar I become with using the focusing bellows the better it seems. For those that are curious, this is the Robert White version of the bellows with the focusing eyepiece.
The only problem that I am running into is the pleats on the bellows. I usually extend the bellows almost fully to be able to easily focus into the corners of the ground glass. As such I am now finding that when I fold up the bellows some of the pleats seem to be not folding in correctly.
This requires that I remove the hood from the camera and use my hand inside to make sure the pleats all fall into the proper place. I am hoping that perhaps somebody with a history of using a bellows camera might suggest a method by which I might properly "break-in" my focsuing hood. Hopefully after a few weeks of performing such a procedure the hood would then by default fold in correctly.
