    Which lens hood for pre-war Bessa 6x9 RF folder?

    Hi all,

    I would like to purchase an original (or 3rd party - doesn't matter as long as its a good quality piece) push-on lens hood for a pre-war Bessa 6x9 RF folder.

    My camera is one of these:

    (Page URL: http://www.retrography.com/bessa.htm)

    What's the part number for the hood suitable for this camera?

    What other options for improvising a hood? (I mean by doing "small" modifications to a more readily available product...)

    TIA,
    Loris.

    These usually took push on hoods, so the outside diameter is important. Also if there's a filter thread that's a possibility.

    There are threads on the lens but I don't know their exact size. I purchased a cheap (but nice!) 37mm generic lens hood but (unfortunately) it's large (by - maybe - 1mm margin) for the threads.

    Try asking Jurgen Kreckel jurgen@certo6.com. I just bought a 1939 6x9 Welta Weltur from him with a push on lens hood and a set of filters. He also sells Bessa range finders and may have a hood available.

    Loris, I may have some filters that fit I'll check the size when I'm back in Kusdasi in about 2 weeks. What is the lens though I can get the size from some adverts I have for the cameras. I have some push on lens hoods in storage here at my mothers, no idea where they came from, I'll go & look for them over the weekend they don't fit any of my cameras.

    John, I have an eye on Jurgen's (and other ebay sellers') pages, thanks for reminding.

    Ian, it's the pre-war uncoated Skopar. I think all the lenses (Vaskar, Skopar, Heliar ...) had the same diameter. The opposite isn't feasible from an engineering point of view... Thanks for checking.

    Regards,
    Loris.
