Just bought a Toyo 4x5 and need a loupe. Square corners, glass instead of plastic, 3.6-6 magnification, something to protect the GG, a method to wear it around my neck, low cost. All of these things have been recom as I read a variety of web-sites. Toyo 3.6 was strongly recom. I guess it is no longer made. What does the forum think is a good loupe? Esp for a newbie.
Also, I am going to make my own hood. What material do you recom? Heavy cuts out the light, but very uncomfortable. How heavy/thick does it need to be?
