The General Brand 77mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood helps to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by shading the front element of the lens. Its collapsible, rubber design enables it to remain on your lens at all times without requiring much additional space and it also serves to protect the lens from accidental impact.

This lens hood has a 77mm threaded screw-in design and is intended for use with normal focal lengths. It is double threaded to permit the attachment of a 77mm filter when the lens hood is in place.

    I already own the Canon lens hood for my EF-S 17-55mm 2.8 and bought this one for taking landscape pictures while using a Cokin graduated neutral density filter by hand. Keeps me from scratching it up. I don't use the hood fully extended, I fold it back on itself, otherwise I'll get some vignetting frpm the hood on the wider end of the lens.

    Nice to be able to put a smaller rubber lens hood along with several adapter rings on the inside of this for storage in my bag.

    Flexible rubber lens hoods are a good alternative to the conventional hard-casing hoods. While you don't gain the potential advantage of lens protection using a rubber hood, they are extremely lightweight, and they collapse easily. This unit is relatively inexpensive, does a good job blocking stray glare, and is perfect as a gobo when shooting against glass. It's practically identical to, and considerably less expensive, than the B+W version. I am concerned that it may not last long under heavy use.

      I bought these in several different thread sizes. Mainly to shoot through glass to reduce lens flare and reflections. Works well so far.

      Not good.

      By Terry

      Comments about General Brand 77mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood:

      The rubber shade part keeps coming off of the mounting ring. There needs to be a tighter fit between the shade and ring.

            Comments about General Brand 77mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood:

            I bought this collapsible rubber screw-in filter to use on a 77mm color filter that I had attached, via step-up rings, to a 58mm lens. It serves adequately to reduce flare. Perhaps a deeper hood would provide even more helpful shade, but I noticed an immediate improvement in contrast and reduced flare even in situations where I was close to shooting in the sun. It's an effective bump shield for the lens and is of adequate stiffness and quality. Good value.

                  Although it would be fine as a lens hood, I needed a filter extension ring and this serves that purpose well. I removed the rubber hood and use it as a spacer to obtain adequate filter clearance on certain lenses.

                  Simple functional rubber hood for my telephoto zoom. Build quality is average. Part of the glue that holds it on its mount came unstuck. However, it still functions well for what I need it to do.

                        This hood does what it claims... sort of. The only issue I had with it upon receipt is that the rubber hood had come detached from the metal ring. It would attach back on, but would slip, making it very difficult to handle and screw onto the lens.I thought about returning it, but worried that a replacement might have the same problem. And, even though B&H has a very smooth return process, it was still a hassle I didn't want to bother with. So, I took 2 minutes to find my superglue and another minute to apply glue to the ring. The hood works flawlessly now. The fact that I had to glue it is a 1 star deduction. Given the price, I still think it is a good deal.

It is firm,and screws easily onto my lens...my polarizing filter fits inside,and my lens cap fits over that...simple,great looking and effective

                                    This lens hood works well on my Canon 70-200 f/2.8. It's shorter than the stock plastic lens hood, but it's as effective. It's collapsible, so it's versatile in different situations, but again it's short....you'll likely keep it extended. For something so inexpensive, it's been a great addition.

                                        I purchased the rubber lens hood because of the NBA rule that rubber lens hoods are required on all lens on the court. They are inexpensive, work great..and do the job.

                                        This product works and appears as I expected it to. It fits my Tamron wide angle lens without any trouble. I question the durability as someone else mentioned their hood cracked along the folds; but so far, so good.

                                          I already own the Canon lens hood for my EF-S 17-55mm 2.8 and bought this one for taking landscape pictures while using a Cokin graduated neutral density filter by hand. Keeps me from scratching it up. I don't use the hood fully extended, I fold it back on itself, otherwise I'll get some vignetting frpm the hood on the wider end of the lens.

                                          Nice to be able to put a smaller rubber lens hood along with several adapter rings on the inside of this for storage in my bag.

                                                  Rubber lens shades seem to have fallen out of favor these days, but I really like them. This works fine, vignettes ever so slightly at 17mm on my 7D, so I'd use this with longer lenses.
