About Adorama

Lens hoods guard against uncontrolled, stray light and unwanted reflections which result in reduced contrast and possible "ghost Images". In general, the use of a lens hood is recommended because better contrast improves the appearance of the photograph. This accessory also offers protection for the front lens element against rain and mechanical damage.

Rubber Lens Hood are made out of a high quality matte black rubber. It folds down and protects against contrast - reducing, uncontrolled, stray light.

OK - While it Lasted

The rubber is a good idea but does not hold up. Fell apart within three months of very light use. Keenly disappointed. Hope Adorama will stand behind this product. Hoping.

It works fine

By

Nothing to get overly excited about, but it works as it should; blocking errant light from the front of the lens, and moderate protection for the front element.

Would not recommend

By

I bought this lens hood so that I could attach it to my polarization filter so that I didn't have to take my lens hood off whenever I wanted to adjust my polarization filter. Unfortunately, every time I reach into my camera bag to find this lens hood the metal ring is detached from the rubber hood. Also, if I am at 15mm with my 15-85mm lens the hood shows up in my pictures. It isn't a terrible product, but there are better alternatives out there.

Just OK

By

I thought this might be a handy alternative to the plastic hood that came with my lens, and it should be. Unfortunately the rubber tends to grab the inside of any type of case, especially the soft fabric lined cases with velcro-in dividers. This makes it rather difficult to remove the camera without tearing the whole rubber hood right off of the plastic ring that threads into the lens. I don't know if the rubber part was originally glued to the ring, but it's not now! It can go back on, but now it seems to come out of it's groove every time I pop the hood out with one hand. It is a two hand operation to get it back into the groove, this is clearly not convenient. Maybe on a smaller diameter lens it would work better (more space).Oh well, for [$] it's not a huge deal. I'm gonna try some strong glue.

Great stuff

I've always preffered rubber hoods over metal they collapse, fairly light weight (a big factor for me as I do alot of nature photos) Well worth the money

Good buy, very practical

By

Rubber flex makes insertion into case very esy. External and internal threads make it easy to use filter and lens cap with hood on camera

Works well

By

These hoods are much more conventient than the fixed hoods. They are cheap, work well but do have to be replaced eventually. I take a lot of pictures and each one lasts several years.

Camera/lens didn't come lens hood. Soft gives extra protection for lens.
