    lens hood recommendations?

    For my 8x10, can anyone recommend a screw in lens hood for the Fuji 240A and 450c? I use 82mm stepup rings for the filters to cover my butt for the future when I get larger filter size lenses. I want to eliminate the bellows flare that I'm getting with the 450c.

    thanks

    How about this (I've bought quite a few hoods from these people):

    The hood should be fine for the 450 on 8x10 with movements, probably too big for the 240. I think the only answer for one hood to fit both lenses would be a Hama roll-up rubber type:

    I use one of those Hama 3-position hoods with my Super-8 kit and with zoom lenses for 35mm, and it's great (compact, easy to use, no problem with lenses that have a rotating front ring), but I don't think it comes larger than 77mm. Hoya makes one too, but I think it also only goes to 77mm

    There are bellows hoods that screw into the lens. Ambico made one that I have (again maximum size is 77mm), and there are some larger ones from Cokin, Lee, and I think Calumet. Check the Calumet website, and they should all come up.

    It might not be too hard to adapt the Sinar or Linhof shade to a wooden camera like the Tachihara. The Linhof compendium takes 4" filters on the rear standard. Sinar has a filter holder that swings away (180-degrees--very handy for using a polarizer).

    My only concern would be tht an 82mm stepup ring on a 240A is a huge size change from the lens filter size .... some, probably small, possible weight/instability issues

    You can find some very large filter holders, matte boxes, or lens hoods by looking at video gear. The prices might be quite a bit higher than what you are use to seeing in still camera gear on some items. Matte boxes are ideal, but normally require a separate mount system, and these can be very expensive. The larger squared off rubber lens hoods for big video cameras can be found to fit 82 mm threading; you could try one of those and cut to fit as needed.

    A while back KEH was having a sale on lenshoods. Lindahl. I assume after the sale they just cut the normal price to match the sale price. I got a couple of different ones for not much more then a rubber hood would have cost new. One mounts with set screws. The other with adapters. Odds are they can handle 82mm easily. But I don't remember right now.

    You'd need the wideangle one for 240mm I guess and a normal one for the 450. Or look for the one that's two pieces.
