Magnifier Hood for Macro?

Discussion in 'Medium Format' started by talmage, May 15, 2007.

  1. I'm shooting a lot of macro with my RZ. I'm looking for something that will
    help me focus better. While I'm getting decent results with the WL finder and
    the built-in magnifying glass, I want better than that. Is the magnifier hood
    suitable for this?

    FWIW, I already installed a Brightscreen and that helps a lot. I'm using the
    127mm with both the short and the long extension tubes (127mm of extension!).

    I found a BGN-grade hood with a broken light meter for $72 at KEH. I don't care
    about the meter.

  2. The magnifier hood is designed for the Pro, not the Pro II, but as you say the light meter is broken, it does not matter. To be safe you might want to insulate the electrical contacts on the hood. That said, I love my fully operational MagHood for macro images!
