Automatic Bellows for MFT

Came across this automatic bellows from Novoflex for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and lenses. It transfers all functions between the camera and lens. Matching lenses can also be used in a reverse position on the bellows unit using an optional reduction ring.

Full details here

Pleased to see a macro bellows unit for Micro Four Thirds as I didn't know this existed. Maybe be of interest to keen Olympus macro photographers.

Was very interested until I got to the price - I’ll stick to extension tubes!

Re: Automatic Bellows for MFT

I still have OM Bellows and have never needed any “auto” functions.

I can however see how it could be very useful if you use them a lot.

Cut a cheap extension tube in half, couple the connections on the two halves with flex, and stick the halves onto a cheap pair of bellows.
