    Hi all,

    I was hoping someone with the above hood could do me a quick favour and measure its depth and width. I just want to make a cheap card copy and the original dimensions would save me some trial and error.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Tom - I have one, but not at hand. I'll check back tomorrow and if no one has beaten me to it, I'll take done measurements.

    Glad you're sorted. Curious about your plan to make a cardboard cut-out copy! Can you elaborate? It's not a particularly deep hood so I'm not convinced it's terribly effective TBH.

    I'll update the thread when I get around to doing it, hopefully next week some time. I just figured I'd try a card/foam version to see if it was worthwhile for dealing with the odd stray bit of light. Should be pretty easy to assemble in the style of these - http://www.lenshoods.co.uk/ - although being square it might need two-part construction.
