    APUG Benefit Auction - Rolleiflex Viewing Hood Extension

    For the benefit of APUG we are pleased to present an extension hood for Rolleiflex, Rolleicord and other period TLR's. Amazingly, it really works, especially on the older TLR's without a Fresnel screen. As the second photo shows, the rear section is scalloped to allow the hood to sit snugly against the face. Cosmetically it is pleasing - I'd say it shows better in person than in the photos. Includes original sleeve. Functional, collectible, and a benefit to APUG - what more could we ask for?

    The auction format has been successful to date so let's try it again. If folks don't care for it just let me know and we can switch to another method. Here are the rules. We will leave the hood up for sale until 10PM Eastern US time on Thursday May 6th. If you are interested in it just post a response with your 'bid'. Opening bid is $5 just to keep it interesting. Minimum advance is $1. Bids must be time stamped 10:00 PM or earlier on the 6th. Good luck! Just post if any questions. Bananas and camera not included, although the bananas are in fact negotiable.

    Thanks everyone for the interest!

    For some reason, I cannot get out of my head a surreal picture of Sanders McNew using this accessory while shooting photographs for his book.

    Could this be considered a "heads up"?

    I've always been curious about this device (and annoyed by flare from time to time) so I'll bid $10
