Item Description
Minolta “Tilt / Shift” Auto Bellows III (Complete Outfit for Pentax K):
This is a unique and innovative bellows system that allows tilt-shift functions on the lens carrier, similar to a large format view camera enabling control of depth of field. This outfit is in like new condition, complete with all components and original packaging. This bellows uses Minolta MD camera and lens mounts, but is easily adaptable to many other camera systems, including; Pentax K & Q, Sony A & E Mounts, Nikon F & Z, Canon EOS & RF, Pentax K & Q, Leica M, Olympus 4/3, Micro Four Thirds, Fuji X & G, and Cine & CCTV “C” Mount.

On the lens board; the Minolta P Adapter (M42) is included, as well as the Minolta L Adapter (M39.) This allows the mounting of all screw mount (M42) lenses as well as Leica and photographic enlarging lenses. The Minolta MD Reverse Adapter (55mm) is also included and will facilitate the mounting of many lenses in reverse, other than Minolta, with step-down or step-up rings.
With the inclusion of the Contax Focusing rail you are able to couple directly with the, Soligor designed, Macro Stand, which provides a 360-degree rotating subject stage table with microscope style specimen clips. The original Minolta Focusing Rail provides a “cold shoe” for off-camera flash.

This Minolta bellows was designed by Soligor, who sold other non-tilt-shift bellows units directly under the Soligor name, as well as branding the non-tilt-shift bellows units for Contax, Konica, Fujica, Yashica, Mamiya/Sekor and others. Soligor also made the fullest featured, bellows integrated, macro stands that are also readily adaptable to non-bellows configuration using common, readily available hardware and Macro Focusing Rails such as those made by Hejnar Photo.

This bellows is also well suited for “field” work, as when the bellows is collapsed, the pleated bellows itself is completely enclosed within the camera/lens mounting carriers/housings.

This is the “ultimate” macro bellows kit!
