I've noticed in a few images (actually, unfortunately, more than a few) that the black paint just inside the rear wooden frame of my shen hao is actually a little too glossy, and that I tend to get nasty flare with bright objects (not even necessarily extremely bright light sources like the sun or anything) when the image cast by the lens lands just on the frame and bounces onto the film.
I hadn't been paying much attention to this until a rash of recent negatives where I can see it in sevearl cases, and now I've noticed that's it's actually quite noticable on the ground glass.
I'm thinking about two options. The first is the compendium shade; I consider that to be a huge pain in the ass though, and I'd like to avoid it. The other is obviously repainting the interior with a more flat black finish or flocking it with the kind of stuff you can get from astronomical supply stores and such.
Have any of you done this to your shen hao, and what would you recommend? I'm asking just to try to save spending too much money on different solutions that may or may not work, and like I've said I'm not keen on the hassle of a compendium shade.
