    FS: Contax auto bellow (shift/swivel), Yashica bellow lens

    I collected a large number of shift/swivel bellows from Nikon, Minolta, Contax and various of bellows lenses/accessories. I am selling some redundant gears. Besides this Contax Auto Bellows, I have Nikon PB-4, Minolta listed as well, with large number of bellow accessaries, lenses, etc. for trade/sale: (http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/975045/0#9241630). Bellows can use any lens on any camera with cheap adapters.

    Contax Auto Bellows (shift, swivel head), Contax shutter release cables - $350

    Yashica lens 100mm F1:4 ML Bellows - $250

    Shipping is from MN 55129, and I can bring to NYC since I am traveling on business every week. Local deal is preferred. Ship to US/Canada only. Accept return if you are not 100% satisfied (and that's why I insist buyer pay the shipping to avoid abuse).

    Hi,

    I have read elsewhere on the internet that the bellows is intended for macro use only but some wise guy says he has managed to use it for portraits with a LF lens. I am interested to hear your opinion on if and how this could be done?

    Sorry for the late reply...just saw your message...

    Yes, many lenses can focus to infinity on be bellow, and you can use it for portrait/landscape if you wish. The reason tilt/shift bellow is attractive is mainly because it makes tilt/shift lenses. I don't know about LF lens, and couldn't comment on that. Bellow lens produce GREAT bokeh, I assume people use it for portrait for that particular reason.

    The following shot was taken by Nikon 105mm P bellow lens. You can see the bokeh
