Free DIY Lens Hoods – download and print


Download, print off and assemble your own glare and flare reducing DIY camera lens hood. Why? Well the most expensive real ones cost upwards of $400.00. OK, so it’s going to be more solid than a cardboard version, but even so, worth a look?

 This site contains PDF documents that can be printed and cut out to make lens hoods for a variety of 35mm and digital SLR camera lenses. Lens hoods give better quality photographs by reducing flare caused by nonimageforming light…In that respect, a paper lens hood performs identically to a real plastic or metal lens hood, except it doesn’t cost you any more than a sheet of paper. The only real different is that a paper or card lens hood may not be as strong as a real plastic lens hood.
