xx cs bellows
« Thread started on: Jul 7th, 2016, 4:15pm »

Maybe I've asked here before, but asking again for good measure.

has anyone ever seen one of these CS Bellows for sale?

https://p2.liveauctioneers.com/364/8902/1715457_1_l.jpg

I'd be interested, just because its a nice piece of engineering and would fit well with my CS/NC1000 collection.

Thanks!

Just wanted to let you know I'm not ignoring you; I just haven't seen any of these in recent years.

I have seen several M42 and Minolta SR (MC) macro bellows, and even a ZE (ridiculously over-priced), but nothing specific to the NC that I can recall.

It might actually be easier and less expensive to find a used technical camera and mount the appropriate adapters on lens boards. There would be the added benefit of movements, if desired.

M645 and 645AF mount bellows also come up every several months on the Evil Bay, typically around half the price that seller was asking for the ZE version.

Ebay has a bellows listed as NC.
.Asking about $250 when you add shipping or best offer.

When I searched, I kept getting only "NC401" in my results, which is the model number for the 645 AF version, and typically at least $100.00 more expensive.

If I am not mistaken, this is the item you meant: "361722222133". It looks to be either X (ES series) or NC (CS series) compatible, possibly both since I can't see any linkage to the aperture control in the pictures.

There's currently another one less than half the price, "332102293324", that looks like it's M42, but the description is a copy-paste from a commercial web site for another model shocked

I have compared with a ZE-bellows which I own, and it looks like it really is a CS-bellows in that sale.

BTW. The first bellow among the pictures is a XTL-bellows and the other one is a M42 bellows.

Many regards Per Malare

Also, I strongly suspect that the macro stand would be more useful if it were attached in front of the lens instead of behind the camera wink
