    New WP Camera! Can I Iron The Bellows?

    Just picked up this beauty for a song (Ob-La-Di). All it needs is a bit of bellows work. Do you think I can just iron them back into coherent pleatedness? Please click on the thumb nail!

    It's the spontaneous and unrehearsed look.

    (Hmm, maybe it would fit with the "destruction" theme...)

    No need; just run over your lens with the car a few times and you'll adjust the optical path to match the bellows...

    Fill 'em with helium--they'll puff out and the camera will be lighter.
