I've used velcro to attach a dark cloth to my cameras, but are there any better ways to attach a dark cloth?
I have a speed graphic and a busch pressman. I cant stand the focussing hoods they come with. They let in too much light, and they dont allow me to use a loupe. I made my own dark cloth and I used velcro to attach the cloth. I am curious though how photographers used to attach them before velcro. I've never seen any tabs on old woodies (or new ones) nor have I seen dark cloths advertized to fit only certain make cameras.
So how do YOU attach a dark cloth, and how did earlier photographers do it?
