I'm intrigued by the malleable lens hood. Do they make those for slightly smaller cameras?

Edit: ... or is that duct tape and construction paper?

Neither!

its a thicker than normal BLACK aluminium foil! just like you get in the kitchen... but thicker and blacker...... its called BLACK WRAP, mostly used as extra barndoor for lighting... and shading lenses....

dont know about who makes it in the USA butin UK, ROSCO..

Just try finding some local PROFESIONAL tv companies and see who they get it from... they might even give you an old tattered bit.. its not that expensive....

I have no experience in film..

but in TV world: its fast, cheap and effective...
most filming involved withe live events need speed... and this is it...

Also during live events you dont have the time or always the option to avoid pointin the camera towards the sun or other points of reflected light... this just might give you that extra tiny bit of "space" to make the shot...

there are also a lot of general crew, freelancers and more so, general public around... so wherever possible, disposable parts are more usefull...

in film you must've seen lampies use it, normally to extend barndoors? (i'd expect) sometimes also to great custom shaped barndoors?
