Product Description

Size: 55MM

- New Improved Design - Professional Reversible Tulip Lens Hood
- Finally a 55mm hood that you can keep on your camera at all times. Simply screw the base of the hood onto your 55mm lens. Then snap the body of the hood on the lens facing OUT when you want to use the hood OR facing IN when you want to store the hood in a bag with no wasted space. The only universal lens hood on the market that lets you use a lens cap while having your hood mounted. Super quick and easy release.

- Easy to use screw-mount screws right onto your lens or filter.
- Lens hoods are one of the most important accessories you can purchase to improve the quality of your photos, and usually the most overlooked by beginner and amateur photographers. The addition of a lens hood can help prevent those circles of light that can accompany images where a strong light source is just outside the frame.
- Professional tulip shape design (also known as 'flower' or 'petal' shape) allows for greater versatility. Perfect for standard or zoom lenses.
- Lens hoods also have the added benefit of providing extra protection to your lens from accidental bumps or scratches.
- Solid and lightweight feel. Specifically designed for a tight and secure fit.
- Please confirm your lens filter size before you order. Your camera's lens thread size will be marked somewhere on the lens barrel or on the inside of your existing camera lens cap. This number is often preceded by a "Ø" (diameter) symbol. For example: Ø55 = 55mm lens thread size.

- New Premium MagicFiber® Microfiber Cleaning Cloth
- Ultra gentle! Extremely fine microfiber leaves zero scratches, streaks or marks. Safe for all lenses.
- Our microfibers are made with premium materials and designed to the highest standard of quality.
- Size: 6 x 7 inches (15cm x 18cm)

Item was exactly as shown and described. The hood fit my Canon Rebel T3i camera perfectly. I am very pleased with the quality of the product v. price. Its light weight and sturdy, yet doesn't take up a lot of room in the camera bag. I would order from them again - in fact, I have. The down side of this hood I discovered is that when my lens focuses, the highs and lows of the hood rotate with the lens. I am told it will be handy for lenses that don't rotate, but I have also now ordered the rubber lens hood too - In fact, one for me and one for my husband for a stocking stuffer. The freebie gift of the cleaning cloth is a very welcome item also. Nice size and cleaned well.

The lens hood works fine on the zoom setting but when the lens is at the wide angle, the edges of the hood show on the pictures.

This lens hood is NOT meant to mount directly onto your lens. It is meant to screw onto a filter. (clear, ND, polar).
It mounts to the filter and the thin nut that is spun on is used to lock down the hood base even more. (by rotating the nut back towards the lens it acts as a double nut, giving better hold)

The hood seems like it is pretty durable and can withstand some beating.
I haven't had a chance to test this in real conditions yet, (going hiking soon and if anything changes, I will try and update this)

Because this is a pedal hood it will not work with the old 18-55 mm lens (the one I got with my T1i kit) because the focusing mechanism rotates the lens/filter, thus rotating the hood as well. Obviously this applies to any external focusing lens.

Item work great on an T3 Rebel. Little bit tight, but works great. Really helps to keep the sun out on bright days to make those great outdoor shots possible.

The price for the product is really good but the issue that I am encountering is that I am able to see the fringe of the hood in some of my pictures. I am not sure if others are like that so it is hard for me to judge...

The lens hood does not fit securely on my lens and often falls off. I doubled checked and its the right thread size but seems to not thread on right.

It's not so easy to handle, because at first hand you think it's not reversible, but after moving it a lot you can see the external part detaches when you turn it around with some force. What I completely don't like of it is that when using a 18-55 lens and shooting with the 18 you can see the edges of the lens hood on your picture, that is terrible and completely ruins the pictures.

The hood is made of what seems like sub-standard plastic. A few minutes after getting it out of the bag and trying to attach it to my Nikon camera the hood itself broke in half so I unhappily super-glued it and after a few minutes when the glue dried I tried it again and part of the plastic that runs along the threads broke into a long shard! I super-glued it again and it finally managed to stay in one piece long enough for me to mount it to the camera but that wasn't the end of my woes; the hood causes some terrible vignetting and I suspect its because of the size of the mounting base and to make matters worse I am unable to mount a filter in the front of the base so I have to screw the base into the filter pushing the hood out further making the vignetting even worse.

I don't like to be a harsh person but after my experience I would not recommend this hood to anyone!
