View Full Version : Linhof/Wista bellows dimensions

22-Feb-2007, 03:19
I have a Zone VI/Wista (DX) 4x5, in cherry, and it seems to need a bit of bellows replacing. I have found a cheap source for bellows, and they have a set of bellows for a Linhof Technica 4x5. The dimensions seem to be around 135mm (r) x 95mm (f) with around 12" of draw on my ZVI/Wista.

Does anybody have the dimensions for the Linhof Technica 4x5 bellows? Or, has anybody tried to swap bellows between these two cameras?

Marflex should be able to help you as they are the Wista Service Center. They should also have original Wista bellows in stock.

Bob's suggeston to call Marflex is no doubt the best advice but FWIW the Linhof Technika 4x5 bellows extends to 15+ inches. Your Wista extends to 12 inches I believe. The extra 3 inches might present problems when using short focal length lenses or in folding the camera.
