How to? Slide Filter Hood by iamgoatman How to? Slide Filter Hood by iamgoatman
So here's a tutorial for my home-made slide filter hood. It is designed for use on Cokin P series filter holders as a means of keeping filters dry during rain and eliminating lens flares. I came up with the idea when shooting the other day to have it poor down with rain, luckily I had a piece of card in my bag which I quickly placed in the top of the filter holder to keep it dry for a moment whilst I took the shot. Of course the piece of card had its flaws, like nearly blowing off in the wind. When I got home I started work on a net for a simple lens hood but to be placed around the slide filters and so this tutorial was born.

I couldn't find anything like this on dA or on the net, although there most likely is some sort of tutorial for a home-made version of this I could find it. Cokin actually make a bellow hood for these filters but at around £110, the price really gets in the way.

Enjoy, and I hope this is useful to at least someone.

Yeah I hate the rain, but I think if it rains heavily your screwed with whatever you use, expect waterproof casing :D

I've seen similar rain covers, I've been known to use a bin bag over my head sellotaped to the front of the lens before, but It's still a right pain in the ass to keep off the glass.
