    The hood in the att looks great. Linhof made them I believe, but whether that one would fit a 6.8/360mm

    360mm is about a 55-58mm on 35mm, so you can do with a rather standard hood, don't forget your movements and IC, so you will need a slightly wider hood.
    Several TC's take copendicums, hoods that are adjustable, with a bit of trial and error you will get your propper settings: look at the clipped corners of your GG and watch for vignetting and adjust accordingly.

    Hope this helps a bit,

    Get a compendium for your camera / lens system.

    I have one for my 4x5 and my 8x10 systems. One compendium will fit your entire lens line-up.

    That lens takes a 105mm filter IIRC. I doubt many standard hoods will fit. Compendium or a well placed dark slide might be easier to find.

    I haven't even bothered about trying to find a hood for any of my LF lenses.
    Shading is the perfect job for the darkslide that you have in your hand when you expose the image.

    I'm with Jesper on the dark slide thing, too many lenses, etc to keep track of hoods. Just hold the slide above and out of the frame when you make the exposure. With sheet film, you're probably using a cable release, so it' easy to get used to.
    Some people have suggested that other bright objects around the edges of the image area may also create some lens flare issues, could be, but I have never worried about that.

    Sinar has a great solution for the hood: one 6 sided bar in 2 sizes (I believe) and 2 holders to click the standard bellows in.
    As I work with the bag bellows mostly, I didn't need to buy an extra bellows.

    I too just Flag the lens with my darkslide

    1) it shades the lens

    2) it makes sure I don't have the darkslide still in the film holder when i expose (yup been there and done that ???times)
