I'm searching the same thing for my dv852 too...i couldn't find a 43mm rectangular lens hood ...Hama makes 49 52 55mm ones...i think you need a step up ring to use one of those...please let me know if you find any other alternatives...Thanks

Take a look at the Lee hoods at www.adorama.com. Rather pricey...but, you can get a stepup ring.

I think the outer most thread on the DV-852 is either 50 mm or 51 mm. This is the part that has to be unscrewed in order to put the 43 mm UV lens in. This thread is an internal thread and I measured it by an inch ruler. It's roughly 2 inches.

i have also been looking for a lens hood however for a 953. It is an impossible task. i think the reason why panasonic might not have made one available is because it would have been too hard for them to move the flash. lazy i reckon. either way i reckon it is the only way to make the cameras look remotely professional. i have a big mic on top mine and doesn't look bad but i think that a large lens hood will just look the part. i think that a step up ring is the only way and if anyone knows where to get one can you let me know. a 50-60mm hood will look good because that is about the outside diameter is similar to that. anyways look forward to some answers. have posed this question before and even got a suggestion to use a toilet plunger. go figure

I read that as well, and actually I think it's not a bad idea. You have a lot of plungers to choose from---from low end to high end (plungers); but choosing the right one, not to thick and heavy, but not too thin and light, may require a bit of looking around in the toilet sections. :-))

yes i guess that it is a sure fix but probably not the best looking one out there. i would like a lens hood because they look good. Of course there are added benefits but only minimal with panasonics integrated lens hood. That aside though i think the camera does need a good hood because at times you can get some aberation when filming bright light sources. anyway i look forward to getting one that is if i dont' upgrade before then. They are a great camera though but like all cameras there are limits and you have to film around them. i would like a vx-2000 or gl-2 because of their better low light performormance. probably favouring the gl-2 but that is in the distance for now.; unless of course i find an amazing deal on one like i did for my mx-500 but until then i might have to buy myself a few attachments to improve the camera. ie a 2x converter. got access to one 1.4x but need a adapter ring. it only takes out the smallest amount of light. it is big though. anyway i will save that for another thread.

Have you tried any screw-on hoods? Will they fit (screw on to the filter threads)?

I don't think that roundish hoods look bad. There's a small square one on my MX300, but I would rather have a larger roundish one. I recall on one of these threads here, that I posted about a hood that'll fit the MX300---but I know this won't help MX500 and MX8/PV-DV852 owners.

Found a 43mm round rubber lens hood on ebay for $4.49 plus $3.00 shipping. There was another one there for $4.75 with free shipping. I got that one but maybe it'll come up again.

Here I go again,

Prices for 'standard' filter ring sizes are lower, hence target 52, 55, 58 and 62mm.

Pay for a 43 to 52 or a 43 to 55 adaptor, and everything will be cheaper after that, your ND, UV, Polariser, Graduated, Star, Soft, etc.

I got my rubber hood (52mm and 55mm) for Singapore $5.00, that's US$2.90.
