    Barring finding a reasonably priced replacement, I'm interested in hand making a replacement bellows for a Fuji GS 645 medium format rangefinder. I need to know where to find the raw material/what materials to use for the new bellows. This is a compact folding camera and the bellows are quite compressed when closed, so the material can't be too thick or bulky.

    Thanks!

    If you decide to just have it repaired, you might try Camera Wiz. They replaced mine awhile back and the bill was reasonable plus they did a very nice job on it. The contact info is part way down this discussion page:
