    Focusing cloth ?

    I love my 1980's vintage Calumet dark cloth, but would like to find another similar. Most I find on Ebay are the velcro types or very lightweight. I am not against the velcro types, but it should be substantial and not crap! Any favorites out there? Thanks!

    I'm a big fan of the Wanderer dark cloths. Hand made, weight-y but breathable and available in several sizes and styles. They're a little pricey but worth it.

    I have one, love it... I want to build some kind of lightweight aluminum frame for the inside. There are times with wind where I'm constantly trying to pull the inside off my face!

    I just looked at the wanderer photo site. No info on how they attach or materials they are made of. I sent an email for more info, but no response so far.

    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    The Wanderer cloths use adjustable elastic on one end. They’ll add snaps on request for an additional fee but I don’t find it necessary.
