    September 12, It isn't necessary to duplicate the connected strips. If there are any holes you will see little dots of light. With these steps I'll show you how to make one yourself. Did you make this project? This helps prevent the bellows from sliding off the end. Fold the horizontal lines like an accordion, folding the top towards you to begin.

    As already stated, a bellows has three layers: 1. a thin black cloth with a paper backing (bookbinder's cloth) 2. gr/m2 black cardboard in the middle 3. leather, leatherette or canvas on the outside, as thin as possible, but light tight.You don't need to make the "ladder" of stiffeners.

    The bellows themselves were sometimes made of a lightweight close weave material treated to make it light proof, but this was only on the cheapest models and.Move the flashlight around a bit since some light-leaks can hide in the folds.

    In photography, a bellows is the accordion-like, pleated expandable part of a camera, usually a large or medium format camera, to allow the lens to be moved.This is exactly what I needed, thanks a lot.

    Position the sheet of paper length wise facing you. Use the ruler to make tick marks every 1/2 inches up the paper. Once this is done take the drafting triangle.Namespaces Article Talk.

    then I made this simple paper template. (I will add a proper pattern with measurements later). Camera bellows stiffeners. Under construction! First.Later cameras, such as the Isolette and Ikonta, are the "self-erecting" type with a fixed lens board and a front cell focusing lens.

    As it turns out, folding the bellows is not that difficult, although it does take some practice to make nice looking folds.

    Use black for the inside of the bellows and use whatever color you want for the outside with the light-proof material in between.

    There is a good reason they are that way and you should duplicate this on your own bellows.

    The gaps between the stiffener strips allow the cloth to easily fold around the stiffener strips.

    The only real challenge is to insure the bellows is square to the frame and camera body.

    In between the liner and covering there is a series of thin fiber stiffener strips with a small space in between each strip.

    Be sure to allow the glue to dry before attempting to fold the bellows.

    I eventually stopped using the cover stock since it tends to make the bellows too thick.

    For the seams of the bellows, and to attach the bellows to the frames, use contact cement.

    Extend the bellows to its comfortable full length, not putting stress on the folds.

    The plastic material may not stand up well to being repeatedly folded and unfolded, but it looks fairly durable and should work for many rolls of film and possibly for several years.

    I first applied glue to the inside fabric and put a piece of scrap paper underneath while doing it so the glue would not leak to the inside.
