    I just got an iPhone 6 (not 6 plus). It measures 5.44 x 2.64 inches, or 138 x 67 mm.

    I'm looking for a soft, foldable hood that will fit the iPhone 6. I want a soft one so it will fold up and fit in my flight case. I had made a rigid one out of cardboard and black gaffer tape for my old phone. It worked pretty well, but couldn't fit in the case.

    I'm hoping that some of you Samsung Galaxy owners might give me leads on where to find a hood....?

    Hi,

    I'm not connected at all with this guy, but I purchased this hood a few weeks ago and it works perfect. I measured the interior dimensions and it is big enough for the iPhone 6 (according to your dimensions).

    I use it on my iPhone 5s and it folds up conveniently.

    I like this one plus the mounting hardware. Sides fold the center, but the piece behind the phone must lie flat. As a sunshade, the sides are held in place vy velco strips attach to piece behind the phone. Check out his mounting hardware as well.

    You might also consider the jellyfish and mount it to a tripod. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CXG ... FDBT4GR88N

    Stephen Wheatfield uses this setup shown in his article at (scan down the article and you will see the setup). http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essay ... cles.shtml

    If you email him I'm sure he will tell you what hood he is using.

    I use a hoodi by HoodiVision on my iPad Air. I don't think they make one for the iPhone6 but they're a small on-line outfit......They may be willing to make one for the iPhone. I'm very happy with my hoodi on my iPad Air.
