    A compendium is adjustable for maximum protection from lens flare while accommodating view camera movements while still avoiding vignetting.

    Nice designs, like the Horseman to which she linked, have a hinge so that you can flip them up out of the for easy access to the lens, shutter, etc.
    Most large format compendiums mount to the camera body, medium format, like the Hasselblad one suggested mount to the lens and can not adjust for camera movements.

    Re: Lens hoods for barrel lenses

    Thanks everyone, some good ideas.

    A compendium is probably the proper way to do it but I like Ted R's low tech idea of black pvc plumbing tubing, maybe with some fairly dense foam inside to size appropriately to each lens.

    Or maybe a piece of the plumbing tubing attached to one of those snake-like sections you see on adjustable desk lights., one size could fit all in that case.

    Unless you use movements and end up vignetting!

    If you use movements on a view camera a compendium is the answer.
