    I'd love to help organise something in July. And perhaps an organiser's meet up earlier if need be. :-) Ideally we could get a few people who do LF or who even are interested in getting into it...

    Hello again Rafal! I'd love to meet up with you and anyone else to do some LF photography - as long as the tolerance threshold is high for a certain lack of expertise on my part...

    This would be fun.

    I think it would be great, especially with the eye for getting other people more interested in LF in Ireland. Ideally having some LF kit with you for the meet would help, but I am sure we could try working around that too.

    How about we have a general get together but you guys who do LF can demo to us guys who don't? Seeing as the December Apug gathering is slowly fading into the background we are overdue another outing (I know Paddy's and Easter have kind of scuppered march but maybe sometime not too long after?). On another note the Cork Chapter (ie me and fluffy) is thriving and if ever you guys are down this way and want to go shooting give us a buzz...plans are afoot for our own Paddy's day street photography (seeing as we are both restricted to Cork this time round).

    That sounds like fun! Would you be thinking of an in-pub etc. demo or an outing in the open? I would love to share the fun of LF with others. I'm not sure when would be best - as you've done the get-togethers before you would have a better feel for that.

    I've never been to Cork. No doubt it would be a great place to drag my kit to. :-)

    pub good... as long as they are serving decent guinness (and I'm not driving!) btu we could do a bit of both (pub and outdoors) if people are up for it.

    Well Fintan-
    your leaky bellows tempted me out into the open-

    I remembered a post on the LFF,
    where somebody recommended Dow Corning Silastic Gasket 100% silicone rubber Plastic Putty.
    And he recommends applying it on the outside-

    Strangely enough, he was replying to a post that was 8 years old-
    full thread is here-

    It would be good if you managed an easy repair-
    I hate to think of that T55 expiring for no good reason-

    Btw, although that compound sounds plausible,
    I haven't any experience of it myself-
    My own bellows are holding up quite nicely, thank you very much-

    Failing that, there's a seller on ebay that makes replacement bellows-
    though I don't know if he does Linhof-
    and it would require a bit of DIY to fit them-

    Go on- get it fixed...
