    i using my Fz5 with the TC for some bird photography, was trying to catch some munias in open field but the bright sunlight causes some flare (dun noe if its the correct term)

    so i was looking into the possibility of DIY a hood

    I don't think there is one. If there is then I've not seen it before.

    ic.... the thing is the tcon doesnt come with any filter threads. if there was then maybe you can use the rubber collapsible hood sold at most cam shops. unless of course you wanna mod a hood on your own.

    who knows... maybe you can start selling them if you manage to DIY one.
