This is an item that does not come up for sale often. I have one, excellent build, bellows is totally enclosed when collapsed, which is a nice feature in the field.

Item for Sale
Pentax Auto Bellows A and Macro Stand

Asking Price
250.00 USD

Item Location
Coquitlam (Canada)

Item Description
This Pentax Auto Bellows A is the newest of the Pentax bellows units and is in excellent condition. The bellows itself is light tight with no apparent wear. This bellows has a three function cable release on the front lens board; (1) Cable release, (2) Manual lens stop-down, (3) Locking lens stop-down. It can be used with a dual cable release (not supplied)

The original User Manual (hard copy) and will be supplied with a memory stick containing a digital PDF copy of the User Manual, along with PDF copies of the manuals for other peripheral equipment and accessories that can be used with this bellows.

Pentax digital camera bodies require spacing out from the camera bellows mount board and also included is a #1 (13mm) Aico Manual Extension Tube K.

Supplied with this bellows is a macro photographic stand. The Pentax Macro Stand is seldom, if ever, seen for sale, the staging table does not rotate, and for focusing uses the Pentax Macro Focusing Rail III, which has a very coarse rail focusing mechanism and in my opinion not suitable for precise macro work.

This macro stand is manufactured by Soligor and sold under a number of brand names, Contax, Minolta, Yashica and others. It has a 360 degree rotatable stage table with specimen clips. It is mated with an 11.81 inch (300 mm) upright rail/column made by Sunwayphoto (DPG3016). The bellows is attached with a Really Right Stuff Clamp (B2-MAS). This combination allows two height adjustments, the RRS clamp will position the bellows focusing rail up and down on the rail and the integral Pentax bellows focusing rail will allow fine up and down adjustment of the bellows unit, leaving the two bellows lens/body adjustments for fine focus. It is very stable even with a large full frame body.

Because the upright rail (support column) has Arca-Swiss QR grooves on both sides, the entire unit can be mounted horizontally on a tripod with an Arca-Swiss compatible clamp
.
This combination unit would be ideal for photographing small items such as stamps, coins, insects, mineral samples, small flowers, etc. the optimal lens for use with the macro stand would be 50mm or less and a macro lens would be a good choice.

Components:
(1) Pentax Auto Bellows A
(2) Pentax Auto Bellows A User Manual
(3) Aico #1 (13mm) Manual Extension Tube K
(4) Sunwayphoto Multi-Purpose Rail (DPG3016)
(5) RRS Clamp (B2-MAS)
(6) Hejnar Index Stop Bar
(7) 1gb Memory Stick (Digital User Manual PDFs)

Item for Sale
Soligor Multiflex Bellows: Pentax K Body/M42 Lens (original Konica AR) w/Macro Stand

Asking Price
209.00 USD

Item Location
Coquitlam, BC (Canada)

Item Description
The pleated bellows is in excellent condition; one of the strong features of the Soligor bellows is that when the bellows is collapsed the bellows itself is protected. The lower Multiflex Focus Track is a separate accessory and is not always available with the bellows. In this case the focus rail is a “Contax” branded one (made by Soligor) and is in “like new” condition. Soligor bellows units were made to fit Canon, Nikon and M42 Mounts. The units also were “branded”, for instance the Konica Auto Bellows 3 AR, and for others; Contax, Yashica, Minolta, Fujica, Miranda, and Mamiya/Sekor.

This bellows unit is originally a Konica Flange mount and has been fitted with a Photodiox Pro AR to PK camera mount adaptor, and a Konica/Praktica Lens Adaptor 2 AR (M42). This allows the attachment of a Pentax DSLR with sufficient clearance from the rear standard and allows the use of screw mount lenses of which there are many excellent ones available. Obviously Konica lenses can also be used and the Konica/Minolta 50mm Macro lens is an excellent performer. The Pentax SMC Super Macro-Takumar 50mm F4.0 (M42) is rated 9.9 out of 10 for sharpness and would be my choice.

The Soligor Multiflex Auto Bellows is an excellent bellows in that it is robust with excellent build quality comparable to the Asahi Pentax Auto Bellows, which says a lot. This Bellows has a two piece “X” rail, but I would more accurately describe it as two “V” rails jointed together. They are aligned with two locator pins on the front and use a single ¼-20 screw at the rear to hold them together.

The two piece rail system is very versatile in that the bottom rail component can be removed quickly w/o tools, and replaced by an 8” Arca-Swiss quick release rail (Hejnar Photo), as illustrated with a Pentax K-1 Mk.II and an SMC Bellows-Takumar 100mm F4 lens. This lowers the profile and makes it easy to mount on multi-directional micro-adjusting focus rails using QR, or on automatic rails such as the Cognisys Stack Shot with a quick release.

The Macro Stand is a high quality stand, easily attached w/o tools, with a rotatable stage and is an excellent additional accessory that allows vertical (or horizontal) macro with a solid or illuminated stage for smaller objects such as insects, coins, stamps, mineral samples etc. I believe this is far superior to the Asahi Pentax Macrophoto Stand which is nearly impossible to find used.

This Soligor Multiflex Auto Bellows (Pentax K & M42) Set is comprised of these components:

(1) Multiflex Auto Bellows
(2) Multiflex Focus Track (Contax branded)
(3) Photodiox Pro AR to PK (Pentax K) Adaptor
(4) Konica/Praktica Lens Adaptor 2 AR (M42)
(5) Unbranded Soligor/Contax/Konica/Yashica/Vivitar Macro Stand (made by Soligor)
(6) Multiflex User Manual (PDF Copy) Note: Hard copy not available.

This one is incredibly rare and is only the second one I have ever seen for sale in the past 10 years.

PENTAX 645 AUTO BELLOWS | eBay

I bought a new one and still have it. This one and it appears "all there" except for the manual and the "wired" camera connection, It does not use a dual cable release and does not come with magnification scales like other Pentax bellows units. The camera is triggered by single cable release and an "wired" cable back to the 645 body. If you are using a 645D or Z not an issue. You can still wire these but it takes some work.

Murray

PS: I can supply a hi-res PDF Manual if anyone is interested.

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax Bellows 100mm F4.0 Lens (K Mount)

Asking Price
119.00 USD

Item Location
Coquitlam (Canada)

Item Description
The K mount SMC Pentax Bellows 100mm F4.0 lens was made from 1975 until 1998; it has six aperture blades and accepts a 52mm filter. It has a minimum aperture of F32 and a maximum aperture of F4.0.

It is not as commonly seen for sale as the Pentax Bellows Takumar 100mm (M42), and like the earlier Takumar bellows lenses it has no focusing mechanism and can only be used with a bellows unit. However unlike the earlier Takumar bellows lenses it is not a pre-set lens and the aperture can be stopped down with a cable release at the time of exposure.

It is sharp, compact, and light weight at 185 grams, and without extension tubes will focus to infinity.

The lens is in excellent condition, as is the case, and comes with original front and rear caps and the original (snap-on) lens hood.

Included on a memory stick is a PDF copy of one of the first Pentax Lenses & Accessories brochures it was featured in, as well as a PDF copy of The Pentax Bellows eBook.
