    Deformed bellows (Horseman 45FA), repairable?

    Hello,
    I have a Horseman 45FA and the bellows is somewhat deformed on the bottom, causing a vignetting. Wondering if it is fixable. See attached photos, third one is taken through the front standard.

    Appreciate knowledgeable input.
    Regards, Thorir

    One simple trick is to put a round tab of Velcro near on the outside of the susceptible point, and keep it taught with a connector strip of the furrier Velcro complement, connected at the other end to the camera body itself. Carefully done, this should not impede normally folding the camera back up.

    Thanks. Hadn't thought of that.
