Product Highlights
  • 4x5 Folding Hood for DX, DXII and SW Wooden Field Cameras

The Wista Folding Hood eliminates the need for a focusing cloth in a studio or the field. It opens up wide enough to allow for ground glass focusing with a loupe. It also serves to protect the ground glass. This hood acts as a light visor to aid in viewing and focusing an image on the ground glass on a Wista 4x5 DX, DXII and SW wooden field cameras. The folding (collapsible) type 4x5 hood magnifier also enables you to use both hands without the use of a focusing cloth even for field work.

    Comments about Wista 4 x 5" Folding Hood:

    This focusing hood can be used to replace the traditional focusing cloth. The good thing is you can operate the view camera on the street, without drawing people's attention. But it is not as effective as the focusing cloth. Light may still leak in and the reflection on the ground glass makes it difficult to compose. I would still prefer using the cloth. This pricy little gear also serves as the protection cover of the ground glass, which is nice.
