I lost my lenshood but found a site that produces a template for a cardboard one, http://www.lenshoods.co.uk/custom.php, but I need dimensions of the hood, which I don't have, 'cos I lost it:rolleyes:
Anyone kind enough to measure their hood and let me know the relevant dims? I would be very grateful.
Yeh I know I am a cheapskate but 39 +pp opposed to a bit of black card, no contest:)

Not sure what dimensions you need but the internal diameter (camera end) appears to be 77mm. Let me know if you need any other dimensions

Edit I have now clicked onto you link and I think the sizes are:

base diameter 77mm
End diameter 86mm (this one is difficult to measure so I am not sure)
Hood length 14mm
petal size 29mm
Petal crop size - really not sure but try 0mm

I lost mine too while on holiday in France last summer. We were having lunch at the Puy du Fou historical theme park and shared a table with a family from Paris. Fortunately, they saw it had been left behind and it was eventually re-patriated :)

Maybe you could make it out of black plastic instead of card?

Thanks for this.
It just might say me making one.

But for the 300mm f2.8 (599) the price would drive me to make one myself.

Thanks for this Roger, I will give it a go and report back.

just an idea, if you make it on card why not laminate it for extra strength

I will probably make it out of stiff black card. I have to subscribe to the site before I can make one though. I am waiting to hear from the owner how to subscribe. It may be easier to get one from ebay.

Hi Dave.

Did you ever get access to the site?

Hi Dave.

No, when I looked closer at the site the author said that he would not be updating the site after a certain date, cannot remember the date but it was prior to me finding it.
