I just bought an 8x10 Kodak Folmer & Schwing model 9a camera. It has two bellows, and enormous extension. Unfortunately, the bellows are in pretty bad condition. Does anyone know where I can get replacements? In the alternative, what materials would people recommend to patch them? Please give me a call at 415-664-9359, send me an e-mail at bigelaw@ix.netcom.com, or simply reply in this forum.

Thank you,

David Michael Bigeleisen

I have heard that replacements from camerabellows.com are very thin, flexible and strong. I don't have firsthand experience, though.

I do have firsthand experience with Camera Bellows and am very pleased with the results.

I just received a new bellows for my Toyo810M (I've been wavering back and forth for six months and finally took the leap). It is a nicer bellows than the original, and despite the fact that it had to make a round-trip to England and back, it was in and out in three weeks.
