    Has anyone found where to buy such a lens hood? I purchased the standard ones and while they fit great on the lens they won't fit while using a filter. I really need one to fit over my ND Filtets

    Mikeboz,

    What filter are you using? There are some out there that screw right into the same place as your standard clear lense is.

    I'm using the ND ones from Taco RC with this lens hood which is a nice push-fit over the filter...

    they weigh around 3g and for those in the UK you get two for £4.50 with free postage but I'm sure you will find them on the US ebay site as well.

    Taco RC's ND's any good or are Polar Pro's better?

    I'm also tilting towards DJI ND filters.

    The Taco ND filters are very good quality and are quite cheap if you buy them as a set. They also come with a free zipped case, free gimbal holder and free shipping.

    I haven't used the Polar Pro's or the DJI filters so can't do a comparison.

    I have used Taco, Polar Pro and Snake River. The snake river seem to be better made and overall I prefer them over the others I have had.
