I don't get the people hating this stuff. I'm a pretty hardcore "ricer" hater when it comes to cars. But, a layer of skin on a lens hood seems stupid to make a fuss over. There aren't a lot of ways to personalize a camera anyway. It's better than puke green or primer gray body panels on a civic with 90HP.
Well, not trying to speak for anyone else, but every time this CF hood talk pops up again in a new thread I just have to roll my eyes and ask why anyone would want any part of their camera to look like a 1995 Honda Civic hatchback?!
The equipment is amazingly cool looking right out of the box. Added to that that there is zero functionality gained by wrapping a lens hood in vinyl, it becomes just as sill as these were/are: LINK
