Any Folding Focusing Hoods for my Arca Swiss ? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I am the proud new owner of a pristine used Arca Swiss 4x5 compact metric. It came with a 50 cm folding rail, very cool.

Are there any folding ground glass covers/focusing hoods that will fit this beauty?

Check out The F Stops Here. (I think that's it.) They have an Arca Swiss catalog on hand.

Arca has two configuations. (Perhaps more.) They have a mirror device that rights the image top to bottom with a binocular viewer than enables you to look inside.

There's a second configuration that incudes just the binocular viewer connected to a viewing bellows. The image is still upside down, but use of this device makes the darkcloth unneccessary.
