    Rolleiflex lens hood source

    Hi,

    I am trying to locate a lens hood for a Rolleiflex TLR. I have tried the big guns like Calumet and Adorama and a few others, but it's out of my budget to purchase what they have available.

    Anybody that might have a hint where to start looking for an antique like this?

    Thankful for help,

    - Thomas

    I have gotten several off of the auction site. Prices fluctuate wildly, but I have gotten a real Rollei lenshade with its leather case for a low-price of $12 and a high of $35. If it's the BayI lens the Yashica lens shades work just fine as well. I wish I had a spare so I could play "Let's Make A Deal" for you - I price things to move - but no such luck. I've found that patience can often reward you if you have the time to wait.

    Good Luck!

    Thomas,
    I have a lens shade for my Yashicia TLR, made by Yashicia and it works really well. I also have an off brand for the same cameras and it isn't worth owning... Doesn't fit well and isn't tight once it is fitted to the lens.
    Watch E-Bay there are shades up for bid almost weekly and the going price is about $30. I got lucky and bought a Yashica 124G for $47. and the person threw in the Yashica lens shade... That won't happen again.
    Anyway good luck

    Ebay is probably the cheapest route, last one I got there we $20 and came with a Rolleicord III! If you can't wait ritzcam.com, pacificrimcamera.com, or goodwinphotoinc.com usually have a selection of collector quality at that premium as well as users that are reasonable (I got one from Ritz for $35). Bottom line is to get one, it makes a difference with a TLR.

    Hi all,

    I checked all of these sources out. One way or another, I'll have a lens shade for a Rolleiflex shortly...

    Thank you,

    - Thomas
