    Mamiya Auto Bellows N anyone?

    I've been looking into the Auto bellows N as a way to turn my Mamiya 645 into a view camera. Does anyone has any experience with this accessory? My main concern is that it will be able to focus at infinity, and if so is it still capable of movements? Other comments are welcome as well.

    Thanks!

    The Mamiya site shows magnification with an 80mm lens to be 0.60 to 2.23 so you're not going to be able to focus on infinity.

    Here's a link to a page, the bellows is near the bottom of the page.
