Here's a VERY good focusing cloth. Please know that I have no affiliation with this business. I just like their focusing cloth.

They do indeed look nice, but consider that my identical-looking, home-made darkcloth (see my post on previous page of this thread) cost no more than about $6-worth of material. Of course it helps if you have a sewing machine.

I spent the ~$80+ cost difference on film.

BTW, if the wind is so strong as to whip the cloth around hard enough for the corner weights to bust my ground glass, as the blurb suggests, it will probably blow the camera over (away?) too. And maybe me along with it.

BTW #2: at those sizes, they could double as tablecloths!

$6 sounds better than $80 for sure, I can't argue with that. It's a fairly expensive table cloth...
