    I sent Custom Bellows a spare set of the bellows frames for my 45S and they made, and affixed, a bag bellows to the frames - perfect service. ....

    Re: Technikardan 45 S

    Are the standard bellows made by Custom Bellows similar to the OEM ones?
    Could some of you show me some pictures?

    Thanks,
    Gabriele

    @Bob thanks, I downloaded the instruction as soon I got the camera. It is indeed pretty simple to open and close it.
    Still I have question, am I supposed to lock all the levers when I put the camera in storage or is it better to keep them in the
    unlocked position?

    My understanding is that Custom Bellows supplies the bellows to Linhof in the first place, so the replacement bellows should be identical.

    Doesn’t make any difference stowed. But I would lock them all, as long as you remember to unlock the green ones when you open it.

    Even following the instructions, folding the TK45 is tricky. I unlatch the front bellows to make it easier.

    How is it tricky? You move everything to zero. Unlock the green locks, lock the red locks and rotate the focus knob to close or open the camera. A large arrow on the focusing knob indicates direction!

    If you have the TKs then you also need to depress the swing detent to start closing.

    For the record, the green levers for vertical shift and tilt need to be locked and all of the red levers unlocked for either opening or closing the camera.
