Anybody have an inexpensive way to flock a third party lens hood? I wanted to do it for my 70-200 f/4 hood. It has a matte finish on the inside, but since the 70-200 is somewhat prone to flare I'd like to have the flocking. I've heard of people doing it to their telescopes....

Thanks!

I just came across a DIY flock kit from Lee Valley Tools here in Canada for $27. I will be doing 2 aftermarket hoods and will post my results.

Go to craft shop and get a piece of black felt ($1.50 here). Glue it on.

Here in a German photo board one has a way to form the felt the right way:

You can get excellent flocking material from www.fpi-protostar.com (external link) - it's commonly used in amateur telescopes and is about as good as you can get. The glue is pretty extreme, so don't get it stuck to your optics :D


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.
