Its a mattbox + reg frenchflag from cinetactics.com. No vignetting and very portable.

I got one of the cheap ones off Ebay. It doesn't block the auto focus from what I could tell. I zoomed in and out a bunch of times and it didn't have any problems focusing.

It fits well, and it came with a cover. It fit perfectly on my UV filter.

Lens Hood?

Hi there, thanks for posting the pictures, how is this setup working for you? Where could I buy that nifty lens hood that you've got on your HV20? Do you like your shotgun mic that you've got on there?

Thanks!

But how do you get that 'mattebox' to attach to the tapered front of the HV20 without having that wide-angle lens threaded to the front (or whatever attachment you have on there)?

You don't. I suppose you could just get a step-up ring, say a 43mm to 75mm or something like that and then attach the shade to that. Dunno if the step-up ring would be thick enough, but it might work. Keep in mind though, because of the size of the shade, you are gonna lose the ability to use Auto-focus, the light and the flash.

Yeah, I don't like that hood anyway; I was just wondering how it might even work on the HV20 without additional hardware.

How come some people can post pictures and others cannot? I want to post a picture of the Fotodiox hood on the hv20. Looks nice. The instant focus sensor is blocked with it on however.

Ian - You can't mount the hood without a filter right? (At least you couldn't on the one I got from GoShot camera - ebay seller). So the problem is, with a standard UV filter you get reflections/flaring from the glass filter (more expensive coated ones perhaps not). With the UV they sent with the hood I noticed the flaring right away. So I returned it and ordered a 43mm hood that screws directly to the camera itself.

Actually it came with a 43mm ring, and that's how it mounts to the camera. That ring is also threaded, so you could either add filter + ring + hood, or ring + filter + hood without an issue.

Did you notice any issues with the autofocus? That hood looks great!

It seems to slow the I-AF down a little, but that's not really an issue for me.

I've also ordered one of these for my wide angle WD-H46 lens. It's not the standard H43 that Canon recommends, but with a step-up ring it's been working very well, though flare is a big issue. Hopefully this will solve it.

Actually I recieved mine yesterday, it's the same as Ian's but in black. I mounted the supplied ring in front of my B&W UV filter and I set it so I can easily screw it on and off without re- adjusting the set screw.
I hardly notice any interference with IAF, if any......
