This 49mm Fotasy Branded Metal Lens Hood can be screwed on lens or filte easily. The construction is solid and does not damage the thread on the lens. The 49mm Screw-in Lens Hood fits lens with 49mm filter diameter only. Please verify your lens thread size / filter diameter before ordering. Lens thread size will be marked somewhere on the lens barrel or printed underneath your lens cap. This number is always preceded by a "Ø" (diameter) symbol. For example: Ø49 = 49mm lens thread size.
I bought a Sony full-frame point and shoot camera, which did not include a hood. I chose to buy this product for $7 instead of the $180 Sony version, which is very similar. As luck would have it, I accidentally dropped the camera on an asphalt parking lot, and it landed lens-first on the pavement. The lens hood collapsed, absorbing the impact of the drop. See the photo for proof!
Classic design and acceptable functionality. It fits on my Fuji 27mm lens just fine. The only thing I would have liked would be if the lens cap fit inside of the hood so that I could cap it when not in use, but alas, the inner diameter is just a little too small. The cap will fit on there, but it's wedged so good that it's a pain to take off (and may even come off unexpectedly) so I'd rather not chance it. Outdoor shooting in anything but direct sunlight does experience increased contrast over a bare lens (and I don't have to shield with my hand, so my non-stabilized shots are acceptibly free of blur).
I use this with the Lumix 12-32mm mini zoom. It nicely replaces the front lens cap so the lens is always ready for use and the front element is protected, especially from my fingers. As an earlier post stated, there is no vignetting with the LW37 hood on this lens at 12mm. And the front of the hood is threaded for common 62mm accessories.
Excellent lens hood. I purchased one of the tapered hoods and found that it was pretty shallow. Not nearly as deep as the lens hood that came with the XF 35mm 1.4R lens. So, I thought I would take a chance on this hood as it appeared to be about twice as deep as the tapered version. Pretty close to the depth of the stock lens. So, no problems with vignette.
Got this to protect the kit lens of my Sony A6000. Installed without a hitch and doesn't add a lot of extra weight or length so I'm quite happy
Fotasy LV46 46mm Vented Metal Hood Shade for Leica Leitz Voigtlander Lens (Black)
This is an inexpensive, but well-constructed 52mm lens hood. It is advertised as useful for Zeiss, but it works with most any 52mm lens (I can use mine for both the Fuji 35mm F/2 and Fuji 23 F/2 lenses, for example). It is quite inexpensive, particularly when you compare it to the cost of brand name replacement lens hood. It is made of a solid, one-piece metal design (maybe brass?) with a dull black paint coat. The machining of the screw threads is pretty good, so the hood screws on and off well. The paint does not feel like it will come off unless it is seriously mistreated, and the hood itself feels very sturdy. It's hard not to recommend it for anyone looking for a replacement 52mm lens hood, but check the user questions and answers to see what lenses people have used it with. Also, note that the hood comes either in standard, vented, tilted, wide, and wide "S" and each may have certain lenses for which they work, so check this, as well before purchasing. None of them are expensive at all, and considering the build quality, its an EASY five-star item.
Absolutely love this hood! This hood screws to the filter thread on your lens, I like it on my Samsung 35mm but also fits very well to my Zeiss 55mm. These are made in metal, I've read some complain about the quality of the finish but mine looks spot on. This also have a thread in the hood it's self but I haven't measured this up yet.
Does the job it’s meant to do but it’s appearance could be a bit more appealing. It looks like a bit of black tubing with a thread. Apart from that it is balanced well for the olympus 45mm mft lens for zenmuse x5 inspire camera.
Nice product - does not have problems at the wide end of the spectrum with vignetting.
It’s great. Adds a stylish look to the lens
Este parasol es bueno y resistente porque es metálico, no hay mucho que decir, funciona bien, es solo que su diseño no te permite utilizar la tapa del objetivo, por dentro no tiene rosca o muescas para utilizar una tapa sobre el, cuando quieres dejar de usar la cámara no puedes simplemente colocar la tapa, no hay forma, o quitas el parasol para tapar el lente o simplemente dejas el objetivo al descubierto cuando no lo estas usando, tu objetivo esta protegido por su estructura de metal pero sin la tapa simplemente va a acumular polvo, tengo que desenroscar el parasol cada que guardo la cámara.
Es pequeño, ligero, pero de buen material, es un aluminio supongo, el único detalle a considerar es que en el caso al menos del lente sony 16-55mm no se puede poner la tapa del lente si esta puesto este accesorio. De Alguna forma también protege al lente ya que el lente queda "al fondo" pero bueno, es un punto a señalar. El precio es una ganga.
Quality materials, matte black inside to prevent reflections, 49mm white text is on the bottom part of the hood so you don't see it when using it. It's thick enough that it shouldn't bend.
Buen accesorio que se siente rígido, es de aluminio pero es muy resistente y no llega a ser pesado, lo recomiendo usar con un 50mm o algo similar
great metal protection for your camera lens!!
Fits the lens. However, you cannot put the lens cover on while you have the hood "on"; and this is a great inconvenience.
Solid metal construction. Great product.
Fit ell on my Cosina 24 mm. One drawback you have to take it out if you ant to put the lens cap on.
It feels premium and is made out of metal. It looks like it could bend very very easily though. I'd give it 4.5 stars if that was possible.
fits great on the Samsung/Rokinon AF 35mm F2.8, just keep in mind the very small lens cap that came with the lens (which fits on the plastic lens hood will NOT fit, so you'll have to get a 49mm lens cap)
