I bought a cheap 43mm lens hood from eBay. It was also mentioned on this page http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...t=34264&page=5
If the backlight comes directly from behind the subject, shade doesn't help much as you can see in this photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/jsuominen/333073112/
. But that was an extreme example and I don't shoot normally that way, if I can move the subject or my own position...
