    large Format Bellows

    If there is anyone out there that needs bellows for their large format cameras i can strongly recommend Custom Bellows Ltd over in England, i have used them numerous times and found them to be excellent quality, they were previously called Camera Bellows as far as i know its is the same company but on a smaller scale after they were closed down and restarted

    Welcome to the asylum...

    You might want to use the search function (e.g. search "custom bellows"), as there have been a few threads regarding bellows making. If we keep the comments together it makes it easier for someone to search for threads with the information in it rather than it being in multiple threads.

    I do agree with your recommendation, as I used them to make bellows for my Korona Panoramic View 8x20 camera, including mounting it on the bellow frames. Great work, done on timely basis, and well priced.

    Would also suggest that you take a look at the home page if you have not already done so as there is a large amount of information.

    Enjoy your time here.

    How odd. Your business is manufacturing bellows.

    let me guess, you're from England and make bellows?
    I'd be happy with Custom Bellows if I was representing them too.

    Yeah, hate stuff like this, is Custom Bellows that hard up for business that the have to resort to this. The Chinese bellows for my Eastman 2D are looking better and better. Maybe the OP can fill us in on exactly what is going on here.

    I ain't a shareholder but I had Custom Bellows make me a set of red bellows for my 1926/7 Ansco and I can highly recommend the company. The bellows are superb and the service was the same. The supposition that they might be "hard up for buisness" is what it says, just a pathetic supposition. They don't just work for photographers, they have a secure foot in the door of industry in this country.
    Go to China and try returning them if there is a problem.................

    Pete, your right I'm making "suppositions" I really shouldn't be making. I really hope that Custom Bellow has nothing to do with this as they have always had such a good reputation.

    "calibre61 has not made any friends yet "

    Seems true from the discussion so far and I hope this changes, but no matter... welcome to the forum!
