The 2 pieces is wonderful. It allows you to remove the hood and use the barrel as an adapter tube. It also allows you to keep your unit powered on (lens extended), and stick it in a coat pocket. Great for filters too. It also helps protect the lens barrel.

Not much to say about this, except it installs easily and is necessary for both filters and the close up lens that Sigma sells. One problem, however, is the lens hood interrupts the pop-up flash, so it must be removed before use or it leaves a shadow.

Fits the camera well and serves not only as a hood but also allows the use of 46mm filters. Price is right too.

There are a several problems that the design of this hood solves: 1) accommodates a telescoping lens mechanism that is always extended when the camera is turned on; 2) provides a larger place to mount filters so commonly available filters (46mm) can be used; and 3) shades the lens from bright light, e.g. the sun. I've never shot without a lens hood.

I clicked the hood adapter into place (no moving about at all, firmly attached), screwed in a 46mm UV filter, then screwed in the hood itself, which also clicks into place, powered up the Sigma, and all is good. Then I detached the hood and screwed in the Sigma polarizing filter on top of the UV filter, reattached the hood (note that for other filters, you probably don't need to do this, the polarizer requires it because it's a two-part filter whose stationary base has to be used for mounting), and all is good.

The DP1(s) with hood installed does require a larger pocket for carrying about, but it only takes a second or two to dismount the hood and adapter with filters still attached, all in one piece.

A "must have" for your Sigma DP-1 camera if you want to shade your lens from stray sun light and want to attach some some filters.Go and get it.

For users of DP1 using filters, the hood is a necessity. Nothing spectacular, plastic material is quite tough.

It works fine - no complaints. I don't think there's any other hood options out there for these DPx camera's. Definitely needed to use any screw type filters, since there's no way to use screw filters on the camera without this attachment.

Excellent, absolutely necessary tool for getting the best from any camera lens! My mentor, and former professor of photography, always extolled the virtues of the lens shade! That's why the old school Pentax telephoto lenses used very large lens hoods to block out unwanted light, and achieve their legendary cult status! Get it, you need it - and it also protects your valuable lens from damage. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Consider this a missing requirement for the Sigma DP1 cameras. The lens cap that comes with the camera is truly awful, falling off easily. Putting this on with a 46mm UV filter on the end will completely protect the most fragile part of the camera.

This snout looking thing has saved my DP1 from disaster hundreds of times and really cuts down on the glare. Can't use it with built in flash because of shadow but with my external Metz C36 its no problem. Keeps you safe and lets you add filters which is great. Ive seen a Circ-PL filter for the DP but dont know how you would be able to adjust it conveniently.
