    Rolleiflex sl66 bellows not extending fully

    Hi

    I have a bit of an odd problem with my sl66.

    Half way through a shooting session, the bellows seemed to stop going out the whole way.

    They retract the whole way, and they go out to about 2/3rds of the normal extension, but at that point there is suddenly a lot of resistance and I dare not push it harder.

    I've compared with my spare sl66 and I'm not loosing it. Its definitely only 2/3rds.

    Any thoughts on repair?

    Thanks all

    Hiya,

    Yes, Jurgen did a great job overhauling the shutter which had been jamming a lot in october.

    I don't really want to have to pay to ship it over to germany and back again, let alone what it might cost to fix

    The left side of the camera looks considerably less complex than the right side. I have a backup rollei which I can use as a donor for any parts which are broken, so I'm considering doing the work myself.

    Steve
