Cheap Bellows – Camera Macro Bellow for Minolta and Canon EOS Reviews

posted by Saeeka on 07/19/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
-Easy and smooth to adjust
-mostly metal construction
-cloth bellows
-the price
Cons:
-inside cloth is cracked, can see metal mesh in behind
-Plastic tripod mount/feet
-lens tips forward ever so slightly
-Could use EF-S (white square) orientation mark
Other:
When I received mine the box was mangled but there was no physical damage.
Inside the bellows I could see the cloth or what ever material its made from was cracked and metal mesh could be seen.
The ball and pinion became loose and needed tightening. I intend to replace the plastic tripod mount/feet with aluminium.
Stick on scale on rail comes up easy. Have to keep smoothing it out.
Bottomline:
Its a good bellows for the price. Solid construction. For the price a few flaws are to be expected.
