FotodioX MACRO-BELLOWS-PK Reviews

Works

Build quality isn't great. It tends to stick when being put on and taken off. Focus adjustment is rough and catches on occasion. For the price it works and I won't complain too much. Nice and cheap which is great for those that don't do macro work often.

NON-FUNCTIONAL

The bellows would not attach to the camera, rendering the unit non-functional. �The bellows mount was slightly too thick, preventing it from screwing on to the camera mount. �Another customer experienced the same problem and was able to remedy it by filing the mount. �B&H should discontinue selling this product until the manufacturer can demonstrate that it can produce a bellows that acts like one.

Mount too thick to fit on camera.

It is cheap, knew that when I ordered it so did not have high expectations. I did expect it to at least mount on the camera but that was not the case. Put it on, started to turn to lock it in place and it got extremely tight after only few degrees of rotation. After fiddling with it some, came to the conclusion that the K-mount ears were couple of thousands of an inch too thick. Since it was pretty inexpensive I decided not to return it and just file the ears down till it did fit. After about 10 minutes of filing, we were good to go. The front lens mount did not have an issue, operates very smooth and precise. Bought it to give macro a try without spending a lot of money, it is great for that, if I decide to advance then I will invest in something of higher quality.

Excellent item.

With very little preparation I was ready to take very close shots

Great results for the price

I purchased this to expand on my macro photography and wasnt disappointed.  Admittedly the build quality is not the greatest, the camera mount is a little stiff,  but a bit of a test gave me a x3.7 magnification with a fifty mm prime lens.

Is there any provision for setting the f/stop if this is used with current lenses without f/stop ring?
Asked by: Andrew
Unfortunately, a Pentax K mount lens would need to have an aperture ring in order to use the Fotodiox Macro Bellows properly.
