Construction of a Square Camera Bellows The references I have seen to making camera bellows were all helpful to some degree, but all modern information concerned constructing a tapering bellows. Such a bellows allows for a larger compression (i.e., minimum extension), but that was not one of my primary design parameters for a portrait camera. (And the finished bellows I made compresses to under 2" anyways.) For others making more traditional landscape field cameras where weight and size are more of a concern, a tapering bellows may be more desirable.
