      Works well so far

      Comments about General Brand 72mm Screw-In Wide Angle Rubber Lens Hood:

      I am using on a pc-Nikkor 28mm f3.5 lens. Thick enough to help soften knocks. Folds back for mounting a filter. I have not noticed any interference leading to vignetting. Nice shallow wide angle hood. Not sure whether it will deform in my pack.

        I liked the idea that it would fit into my bag easily. But the product is not made well, and the rubber came away from the ring. Too bad.

        Comments about General Brand 72mm Screw-In Wide Angle Rubber Lens Hood:

        Good price. Attachs easily to my wide angle lens. It works but is really too small to allow for moving my camcorder freely under multiple light sources...I still get lens flare if not very careful. I have to zoom slightly(with HV20)to eradicate vignetting too. It's probably great for still cameras...not sure. I plan to trick it out by extending hood. For the price, its worth the DIY risk.

          Comments about General Brand 72mm Screw-In Wide Angle Rubber Lens Hood:

          I bought this to use on a Phoenix 500mm mirror lens even though it states it is for wide angle lenses. I hadn't been very happy with this lens because all of the images came out flat with little contrast and washed out color. I bought this lens hood strictly because of the low price. I wasn't sure a lens hood would cure the problem with the lens and didn't want to spend a fortune on a lens hood just to try it. This hood worked very well at solving the problem and I am pleased with both the lens and lens hood now.
