Lee Filters were the originators of the self-supporting lens shade, a technology which is now used throughout our range of hoods. The bellows are manually adjusted to the required position without using rails or guides and thereby reducing size and weight. They are completely flexible and can be used off-angle to selectively shield or match movements on a large format camera. The Lee Filters range of lens hoods is available in many configurations to suit all types of camera equipment and all types of photography.

Lee Filters wide-angle lens hoods have much larger bellows to allow for effective shading on wide or particularly large lenses, where the use of standard hoods could cause vignetting. The unit is available as a wide equivalent of either the standard hood or the slotted hood. This model wide-angle bellows has no filter slots of it's own and requires a filter holder to attach to the front of the lens. It utilizes the outer filter slot in order to mount to the lens.

Hood extends 0.8" (21mm) when retracted and 5.2" (132mm) when extended
Dimensions 8.0 x 6.4 x 1.0" (204 x 162 x 24mm) WxHxD
Weight 0.47 lb (215 g)

Comments about LEE Filters Lens Hood - Wide Angle:

My main concern before buying this hood is if it would be wide enough not to vignette my widest lens, a Nikkor 12-24mm f4 at 12mm on a DX format camera. The hood does not vignette and there are adjustments to spare even with this very wide lens.

The attachment method to the lens adapter rings needs to be improved as for now all that is keeping the hood attached to the ring is a weak spring wedge. At first I tried screwing the brass knob thinking it would tighten the hood onto the lens adapter ring but all I ended up doing was unscrewing the wedge from the screw…. The lens hood is very large and can be easily knocked off the lens adapter ring, maybe this is a good thing as it keeps it from damaging the lens?

I purchased the Wide Angle lens adapter rings in 77mm and 62mm. The rings are well made but had a shine even though they were black. I used some flat black paint to dull the surface facing out. I do not use any LEE filters so I got the hood without filter slots.

I have used this hood successfully on a Nikkor 12-24mm f4, Nikkor 20mm and Nikkor PC-e 24mm. I cut a proportional rectangle (sizes to the 4:3 format) out of black matte board and attached to the front of the hood to act as an "eyebrow".
