Zeiss Ikon Square Hoods

"Cause’ you gotta look good while taking your pictures."

A special request for some unusual lens hoods resulted in the fabrication of two square silver lens hoods. We have machined several conical hoods in the past, but our client wanted something more fitting to the camera’s style.

Both lens hoods featured the same mouting threads. Custom adapters were then machined to mate the hood to the lens. In the example to our right, a slip-on adapter was used to allow the photographer to quickly remove the hood and then replace and reorient quickly.

The interiors were later painted black to reduce reflection. The hood on the right features the slip-on adapter while the hood on the left features a step-down ring.
