    Does anyone know if there were special lens hood to fit 1930's Voigtlander Bessa RF 6x9 cameras with the swing yellow filter?
    I have one with a Heliar lens and it has the yellow filter that swings out. My no-name 37mm hood does not fit it because of the yellow filter hinge. Did Voigtlander make specific hoods for these models. I have googled a lot, but to no avail......

    I had a hood that fit. It had the slotted tabs all around the attachment area. I broke two or three tabs away to clear the hinge. That was my solution. You could grind a section away if the attachment ring is solid on your hood.

    I have no idea if Voigtlander ever made a specific hood for this.
