M39/M42 Bellows


The m39 bellows was built by MMZ. It was also built in m42. The tripod screw is 3/8 only. You need to be very careful with this bellows as it is not marked as to which mount it is.The two M39s that I have have a white dot on the standard and the M42 has a red dot, but I would not count on this as identification. It offers extensions from 9.5 to 20 cm.
