I don’t know how many of you knew that Novoflex made a dual track rack and pinion AF bellows for Sony/Minolta camera and lenses! I found one of those for sale on eBay (Click here). It has all the electrical contacts for the automation of the camera/lens/bellows system. The description says: “It’s a great accessory for close-up, macro, stereographic, and panoramic photography. It’s also perfectly suited for slide/negative & photo copying. It excels in hand-held indoor/outdoor, nature and macro photography, due to it’s automation, compact size and light weight. Other non auto bellows are generally too bulky and heavy for hand-held use. The precise rack and pinion gear allows very minute fore and aft movement of your camera for very accurate framing focusing. It will not slip when pointed up or down. It has a very secure locking mechanism. It can accommodate heavy lenses. It is of all metal construction, steel and aluminum.”
Novofles is a German company well known for their high quality adapters. But I didn’t know they make bellows too!
