Actually, for the lenses on my 11x14 I use a Kodak Polycontrast Filter Kit box. My hat of choice lately is an old felt fedora -- but it has a hole in it (other than where I stick my head in), so I need to tape up the hole if I want to use it for a shutter!

There's two types, front mounted and between lens and camera (just the way the casing's made).
