    The ‘third style’ hood (42315 chrome, 42323 black) was introduced in 1984. These hoods were supplied with all the V-System bodies (500 series and 2000 series, except the 202FA, 203FA and 205TCC/FCC).

    The magnification of the viewing screen by the focusing hood magnifier with this model is 4.5x times, a significant improvement over ther older models 2.5x times. Further more, it opens and closed more easily than the previous version.

    It has a removable panel for the magnifier lens and can have eyepiece dioptre correction panels fitted.
