After connecting the camera to the PB-6 there are a few issues to
remember when using the two:

*Some bulier cameras !such as the F"# D1-series# D$-series# D%&# an' D%(
will re)uire the attachment of a P*-1$ or P*-1% e+tension ring !tube( as a
s,acer before the PB-6 can be attache'- .ithout the e+tension ring# the
bellows unit will bin' on the bottom on the camera# ,re/enting it from
rotating into a usable# loce' ,osition- Smaller DS01s allow enough
clearance at the bottom 'ue to the location of the batter2 ,ac an' an
e+tension ring is not necessar2- A''ing an 3D-D100 or other t2,e batter2
,ac to the bottom of the smaller DS01 maes them almost the same si4e
as the larger DS01s# thus re)uiring the nee' for an e+tension ring-
