Canon hood question

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Ken Rosenbaum, Apr 3, 2005.

  1. I have a couple hoods for some of my Canon FD lenses that bayonet into
    place. A few are looser than others, several very loose. Is there some way
    to adjust these hoods to make them more snug?

    A bit of black electricians tape over the edge will give it some
    stiction. Be careful that it is secure.

    Cheers,

  3. Sometimes you can dimple a piece of metal with a pin punch, and get it to
    fit more snugly into whatever you are trying to fit it into. You might also
    try giving it several coats of lacquer or varnish until you build it up to
    make it a bit more snug......

    A small piece of adhesive tape can also be used to thicken up a worn
    surface.
