Novoflex BAL-NEX fully automatic bellows ($999) was specially developed for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and lenses and it transfers all functions between camera and lens. Matching lenses can even be used in a retro position on the bellows unit using an optional reduction ring.
The BAL-NEX automatic bellows unit is, of course, fully integrated into the NOVOFLEX adapter system and can also be used with other lenses for special applications. Bellows extension is the classic way to macro and photomicrography.
It offers automatic bellows functions with all electronic E-mount lenses. But if you’re looking for the best possible picture quality, FLEX-APO-DIGI90 is a high-resolution and apochromatically corrected lens head, which is available as an option. In addition to the excellent image quality, this lens offers a surprisingly large focusing range that extends from magnification 1:1 to infinity.
Even those who prefer to work with manual lenses do not need to forego the NOVOFLEX automatic bellows unit, because, as usual with NOVOFLEX, the automatic bellows fits into the large NOVOFLEX modular system and can be combined with all kinds of NOVOFLEX accessories.
• Stepless extension extension = distance between sensor plane and lens (= image width); thereby a continuous approach to small objects to be able to take pictures of them.
• Telephoto lenses are much closer than their next adjustment distance to focus (without bellows); thereby tele-perspective in the close range and especially large working distance (no disturbance of the object and room for additional lighting).
• With the standard and especially wide-angle lenses (from the camera range) enlarged pictures = macro shots; over 1: 1 to about 7: 1
• On the tripod: an optionally available adjustment slide is used for focusing without moving the bellows extension (= image distance) or the tripod allowing the plane of focus to be relocated, while the magnification remains constant.
