    Well, the interest in the shade is too low for me to proceed with this. Actually, the interest in DIY camera anything is much, much lower then I anticipated. I might have to cut my losses and move on.

    That's very strange. I thought that you would probably do well with the bellows kit.

    That's what I thought. The demand is just not there. I'll go on at least until my current stock of material is depleted, then I'll re-evaluate.

    Dont give up, there have been other businesses started that catered to the analogue crown that did very well. Satin snow, camerabellows.com, camera leather, interslice seal replacements.
    I think it will take some time to gain trust and find a niche. Remember that many here are pessimistic old farts.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    That's too bad, Sorin. You are providing a real resource.

    Thank you guys for support, if I can make it work, I'll stick around, it just doesn't seem like that's the case right know, at least not in this format (price structure, amount of support, etc). Oh well, I didn't mean to whine, it was just a small business idea.
