View Full Version : Shen Hao 4x5 lens hood, how does it mount?

30-Dec-2011, 10:21
I just got my first photographs back and scanned in from my Shen Hao 617B and I noticed some lens flaring so now I'm looking for a hood :(

I'm looking at the Shen Hao 4x5 lens hood but I can't figure out how it attaches to the front of the camera, anybody have experience with one?

Hi, Sam

Actually, this is very simple, but you need some care and the right tools to do it.

The Shen Hao lens hood comes in 3 pieces, the shade or bellows, the articulated arm and a little metal plate wich must be attached to the camera with 2 small screws wich need you drill 2 small holes in the camera. You will need to drill another hole a little larger to allow the main screw on the articulated arm to have room to screw to the metal plate.

This lens hood is very well made, nice finished and extremelly cheap compared to other brands. I bought mine in Robert White, UK, for about 100.

I wish you good luck, if you gonna install it yourself, on the camera.
