Re: Fixing Agfa bellows

Sandeha's bellows are great for MF cameras, but for the tiny solinette he doesn't have one Solinette bellows can be removed from the "outside", the screws are behind the shutter/lens assembly; but that is a long stretch for my abilities I'll have to breathe for a few days before going to the store a...
