    I read in a previous thread responded by Michael TLV that the Panasonics skimp on black paint on the insides of their sets. This can lead to more reflections. WHat I'm wondering is if anyone has gone out of their way to add an extra coating of paint to the internal walls of their setup? How easy is it and what paint do you use. Thanks

    Duvetyne is probably preferred/easier than paint. You don't want paint dripping around in there and getting on the tubes or lenses or anything. Duvetyne is probably blacker as well. check keohi for more info.

    Some things are easy when it comes to painting. There is a removeable separator board in there that can easily be spray painted black.

    A small brush and a wee bit of paint is all you need for the rest ... just open it up and look for spots that can be painted. It isn't that hard and chance of spray or spill is minimal to none. You are not a 8 year old painting ...

    Interior lining also costs considerably more than $10 in paint and the benefit is debateable.

    Regards

    Is there a particular paint that works the best?
