    There are plenty of easy DIY lens cap instruction on the 'net. Check 'em out.

    Three good holders minimum will get you going, six is better but three will work.

    All the cameras I saw on Looney Tunes andThe Three Stooges had bellows.
    I naturally thought that was how all cameras were supposed to be :rolleyes:

    Re: LED darkroom bulbs?

    I use a short string of red LED Christmas lights I bought on clearance a few years ago.
    I tested them of course, and no problems presented themselves.

    The widest I have is a 159mm Wollensak Yellow Dot. A 10" WA Ektar and 240mm G Claron see more use however.

    Re: Large format aerial photography...anyone?

    Pretty much. Prop wash and wind don't like bellows.
    My current aerial camera (I parted with the K-17 after the hernia repair:( ) is a Gowland. Pretty much an aluminum 8x10 box camera.
