    lens shade for toko 4x5 field camera

    Im getting a lot of solar flares on my negatives when I use my super angulon 90mm on my toko 4x5 field camera. Could anyone suggest a lens shade that would work with field cameras of this style. (its similar to the toyo 4x5 and almost an identical copy of the NAGAOKA 4x5 field cameras). Many thanks in advance!

    You could use the darkslide (that's what I do).

    How about this weird and wonderful (and functional!) gizmo from BadgerGraphic?

    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    The Badger Graphic device is perfect if a bit pricey. Chernobylda, any lens shade designed for the 90 should work, but I expect you want to leave it on the lens when you collapse the camera, yes?

    You need a few of these:

    Adorama has them as should B&H. Search for "multi clip," they're about $8.

    You clip one part to some part of your camera and the other clip holds a piece of coroplast, or a darkslide. I have all kinds of options at work for cutting light off the lens and 90% of the time I just use one or two of these. They're even better if you prepare a couple pieces of coroplast by threading some heavy copper or aluminum wire through the corrugations at 2 or 3 places. That lets you bend the coroplast and have it stay put in addition to placing it where you want it in the double clip.

    Know what, I think my school has some of these sitting around somewhere. I never had any idea what they were for, as I am the last LF format photographer in the program and much of the equipment just gets misplaced and ends up sitting in a desk or a closet doing nothing. Thanks!
