Pentax 6x7 Auto Bellows with Accessories Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax 6x7 Auto Bellows with Accessories

Asking Price
325.00 USD

Item Location
Coquitlam, BC (Canada)

Item Description
This bellows unit is cosmetically in “excellent” condition overall, and the pleated bellows itself, which is contained in a separate metal frame, is light tight and in excellent condition. All controls function smoothly. This bellows is a viable alternative for 645 photographers, using the Adapter 645 for 67 Lenses, as the Pentax 645 Auto Bellows Unit is almost impossible to find used. It can be also used with any K mount camera utilizing the Pentax 67 Lens Adaptor K, and you will gain more than twice the extension capability over using any of the Asahi Pentax Auto Bellows (35mm) (170mm v/s 352mm). You can use 6x7 or 67 lenses, which at present are extremely well priced used, or with the Pentax 6x7 Reverse Adaptors 67mm or 49mm you can use 6x7, 67, 645 or even “35mm” lenses in reverse mode, which do not vignette, and with step down or step up adapter rings you can mount almost any lens in reverse.

Package price for the Bellows with all accessories is $325.00, or I will sell any or all of the items separately.
Pentax 6x7 Auto Bellows with Double Cable release: $ 225.00 USD

Pentax 6x7 Reverse Adaptor 67mm $ 35.00 USD
This allows mounting of any 6x7 lens in reverse, increasing magnification
Pentax 6x7 Auto Extension Tube #1 $ 19.00 USD
Allows additional extension, but more importantly allows the mounting of
the SMC Pentax 67 55mm F4.0 and the SMC Pentax 67 75mm F2.8 AL lenses which have a slightly protruding rear element not allowing them to be mounted directly.

Pentax 6x7 Outer Bayonet Extension Tube #1 $ 75.00 USD
This gives additional stand-off from the rear mounting board and allows the use of the 67 camera body with the prism finder. It also allows shorter focusing distance with some 6x7 telephoto lenses.

Canon T3 Cable Release Adaptor (New) $ 10.00 USD
When converted to a 2.5mm male stereo plug, current Pentax DSLR bodies can be triggered from a manual cable release, making the dual cable release usable for auto diaphragm operation.

Total: $ 364.00 USD

The Pentax 6x7 Auto Bellows can be as old as forty years, or slightly less than 10 years old, as they were available over a very long period of time (1969 to 2009). The amazing thing is that you can still have a replacement bellows built by a company in the UK. Interestingly Custom Bellows Ltd., UK, designed and built the bellows for the Kodak Folding Brownie Camera in 1936, they have been in business for over 120 years!

The original box is not available and there is no hard copy manual, but I am including full color Hi-Res digital manuals, suitable for printing. Included with the bellows is the Pentax Double Cable Release, the Magnification/Extension Scale (metal ruler) is not included. Supplied on a memory stick, are high-res full color PDF manuals for all the peripheral equipment that can be used with 6x7 Auto Bellows along with a PDF copy of “The Pentax Bellows” eBook (in all 75mb of files).

You may wonder why I am selling this beautiful piece of equipment, but while writing the bellows ebook, mentioned above, I acquired three of them and am keeping one that is “67” era and is indistinguishable from new.

More images are available and I would be happy to send a copy of the manuals to any potential buyer, or to any Pentax Forum member who sends me a PM. They would be sent by and I would require an email address.
