Tiffen made a series 6 or 7 square hood that probably would be ok.
The 26 Switar usually comes with a short but effective round shade
the diameter of the lens. There is a good Bolex shade for the old
10mm Switar, available with a threaded ring, that holds series 6
filters -- but they are not easy to find.

There's a film showing at 40 Frames this week shot entirely (except
for 4 shots of a basketball game) with two 10mm Switars, mostly on
CP16 non-reflexes but also on an Aaton with rare C mount adapter.
