Broken Sigma Lens Fixed with a Peanut Butter Jar Lid

YouTube filmmaker Casey Neistat‘s DSLR recently took a tumble, breaking a piece off of the built-in lens hood of his Sigma lens. Instead of sending the lens in for repairs, Neistat decided to do a thrifty repair himself. After finding a similar-sized jar lid on some peanut butter at a local grocery store, he created a replacement hood himself by drilling a large hole and a couple small screw holes into the lid. He calls the project “The Peanut Butter Solution”.

    Wouldn’t a lens hood with a white surface just bounce all kinds of crazy light into your lens?

    Just saying.

      I did the same thing but I used a large Wendys cup and some black paint, I replaced a full size hood for a sony lens

    The whole time I was trying to figure out where I saw that guy before. Then I¬†remembered, I saw him in “The light bulb conspiracy” Which I had just watched last night. :/

    At least it smells like peanut butter and jelly, because it looks terrible.

    C’mon, paint that thing black!!
