    37mm lens hood for Voigtlander Bessa RF 6x9 camera

    Does anyone know if there were special lens hood to fit 1930's Voigtlander Bessa RF 6x9 cameras with the swing yellow filter?
    I have one with a Heliar lens and it has the yellow filter that swings out. My no-name 37mm hood does not fit it because of the yellow filter hinge. Did Voigtlander make specific hoods for these models. I have googled a lot, but to no avail......

    I had a hood that fit. It had the slotted tabs all around the attachment area. I broke two or three tabs away to clear the hinge. That was my solution. You could grind a section away if the attachment ring is solid on your hood.

    I have no idea if Voigtlander ever made a specific hood for this.
