    Compendium Shade for C-1

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a compensium shade for my C-1, and saw a calumet/cambo on ebay. So I was wondering if anyone knows whether it'll work on the c-1. Thanks,

    G. You can make a more effective, lighter and more compact lens shade than a compendium. Attached is my article on the barn door shade which appeared in the March/April issue of Photo Techniques. Please take a very close look at the comparison negatives! The difference you see is simply a result of using this shade. The source for the parts is at the end of the article.

    LTM is headquartered in France and has distributors all over the world as I understand it. Their US office is in Van Nuys CA, but they also have offices in Canada and Germany. I hope that helps. B&H carries their stuff, btw.

    You could certainly use cinefoil to make a shade, but it is not in itself a shade. The barndoor shade screws onto the lens and adjusts to block out practically all non-image forming light resulting in negatives with a greater range of density. Many times, non-image forming light comes from areas below and to the sides of the image. The barn door shade is not just a sunshade! It allows you to exclude bright reflective and contrast-damaging culprits like sand and snow and open skies. If you look at the two sample negatives, you will see the difference. The source of the non-image forming light in this example was sand that was below and in front of the camera. The sun was behind the camera.
