    Bellows for 5*4

    I am making up a 5*4 view camera and need to know the dimensions required for the bellows so I can get one made. I don't have one to copy from.
    Can some kind person out there post me the same.
    I need 1 Internal and external dimensions...big end.
    2 Internal and external....small end
    3 Number of folds.
    This would be to accommodate lens from 60 to 150mm.

    You need to construct some bellows frames...for front and back standards. Then decide how long you want the bellows. Send the frames to a bellows maker, and tell them the length you want. They should be able to make one from this.

    .....or just get a new-old stock type bellows from one of the established brands. That way you have always a starting point should things go not as planned . There's plenty out there and cheaper than gettting one custom made, too.
