A Very Nice Lens Hood - A Very Low Price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Insten 58mm Lens Hood Compatible with Fujifilm Finepix HS10 (Electronics)
I purchased this "Tulip" shaped lens hood for my Canon S5, which uses 58mm filters on its lens adapter. Although this hood is advertised to fit the Fujifilm HS10, it will also fit ANY camera with 58mm filter threads or a 58mm filter adapter IF (and ONLY if) the filter threads do not rotate while focusing. If the hood rotates, it might become visble in your photos.
The hood WILL cast a shadow on your flash photos, so rotate the hood so that a small petal is at 12 o'clock or remove it for flash photos.
I have a Sakar Digital Concepts 58mm lens adapter on my Canon S5. I threaded my 58mm UV filter to the back of the lens hood. Then I threaded the filter to my Sakar lens adapter. After the filter is threaded snugly, you can calibrate the precise position of the hood. The hood has a white triangle for alignment. Rotate the hood until the white triangle is pointing straight up at the 12 o'clock position. Then rotate the locking wheel on the hood to lock it into place. This takes a couple of minutes. I intend to leave the hood on my camera permanently. Taking it off and putting it on is time consuming.
After the hood was adjusted, I tested it by taking photos of the sky with the lens zoomed to its widest position. The hood was not visible in the corner of the photos, nor was there any darkening of the corners of photos. This hood is a PERFECT match for the Canon S5 with the Sakar Digital Concepts adapter. It is likely to work well with lenses that zoom out to about 35mm. If your lens zooms to a wider 28mm, it is possible you might see a bit of the hood in the corners of photos...the wider the lens, the more likely the hood may be visible.
Also, my 58mm lens cap clamped securely into the "throat" of the hood so you can use your cap with the hood on.
