View Full Version : 4x5 Burke & James Press camera Bellows

I just received a 4x5 Burke & James Press camera. It came with no bellows. Is anyone making a replacement bellows? Can I adapt a bellows from another 4x5 press camera? Could I use a bag bellows, instead of a normal bellows?

There are no new replacements out there unless you are very lucky to stumble on someone who has one from old stock. I've never seen one anywhere. You can adapt anything to anything if you have enough imagination. If I were planning on using the camera, I would have a new one made. Western Bellows and other souces are mentioned in numerous posts here. Be aware that the cost is as much or more than the worth of the camera, though. Ebay seller canyonlandgraphics has used Speed Graphic bellows available regularly. You might contact them for measurements to see if you could adapt one.
