Some like the auto darkening, others (like me) don't.
Glad to hear somone else here doesn't care for the auto-hoods.

EDIT***I used to not like the auto-dark hoods because the one I had before sucked. It was a speedglas and was green and fuzzy. I have a 3n1 now (mine's a Jackson, but otheres have the same lens, like Craftsman) and I love it. I have been using it at work since I got it and will probably never go back to a standard hood.

Just make sur when you buy one that it will accpet standard size cover plates (the clear lens) because some take a smaller, thinner cover plate that is all but impossible to find and others take a funky shaped cover plate that cost $$. DO NOT BUY AN AUTO HOOD OFF EBAY FOR $49!!! A buddy at work bought one of those and it is green and fuzzy and doesn't take standard cover plates. ***END OF EDIT [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]
