My newest prototype for a folding hood. Sometimes (say, in some neighborhoods) it doesn't feel wise to stick my head under a black cloth... This should greatly assist with composition, as it blocks most of the reflected light on the GG surface. It also extends enough that one should be able to easily focus his/her eyes on the GG while the eyes are right at the opening. The hood collapses almost flat, that one can use a short loupe on the ground glass for critical focusing and of course for ease of transport. The hood still needs some sort of device to hold it flat, probably a flexible strap with a velcro at the end. The hood mounts to the camera with 4 semi-transparent velcro dots. They are very easy to install, they are not very obtrusive and should it be necessary or desired, they can be removed and the the residue cleaned with glue remover. Thoughts?
