    Cambo SC and similar cameras utilize 6x6 bellows, you might find a camera or bellows uber-cheap on auction sites.

    I have one here. It wouldn't be worth posting the whole body to you but if I can work out how to remove them, I could send the inner bellows to you.
    Are the bellows you mention square? I need bellows that are around 2.5x2.5 - 3x3 inches with reasonable extension (haven't figured out exactly how long yet).

    Since I'm pretty specific about the size and dimensions I need, I'll probably just end up making a set. I'll go either the Gaffers tape route or maybe put a little more effort into it and do as Ian has sugested.

    As I have plans to use the outer, rectangular bellows myself, I might have a go at taking the body apart tomorrow. I will let you know what I find. I suspect that the internal dimensions are at least 2.25" square.

    Haha no worries. I like making stuff anyway so I'm kind of looking forward to making them.

    Definitely let me know when you get it all taken apart. Thanks!

    Bad news unfortunately. As the bellows does not go as far as the film plane, it doesn't need to be full width/height.

    These bellows have an internal dimension of 40mm or about 1.6" so I think the DIY approach is your best option now. Sorry.

    This probably also means that the outer bellows is too small for what I had planned!

    Have you considered scavenging the bellows from a Polaroid?

    I'm going to see what polaroids i have stored away tonight to see if any have square bellows. Beign square is important for the purposes of this project. It'll be a nice surprise if I have acceptable bellows in a box somewhere

    The bellows on my 110a are rectangular, but I'm sure there must be a couple of models that utilized square ones.
