The Heliopan 72mm Screw-in Rubber Lens Hood is designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering a lens by extending and shading it's front end. This prevents lens flair and improves image contrast. In addition, since the end of a lens is extended when using a hood, you also get the benefit of extra protection from accidental impact to that lens's front element.

This lens hood is constructed with a rubber compound that is UV and temperature resistant. The Heliopan 72mm Screw-in Rubber Lens Hood's rubber material can be rolled back for storage or to convert the hood for use with wide-angle lenses. By rolling back the lens hood, its opening can be made to correspond with a wide-angle lens's angle of view so that vignetting is avoided.

A metal mounting ring connects the Heliopan 72mm Screw-in Rubber Lens Hood to a lens with 72mm filter threads. The mounting ring also features corresponding 72mm front filter threads which can be used to accommodate filters, lens caps, or other 72mm-threaded accessories.

      Comments about Heliopan 72mm Screw-in Rubber Lens Hood:

      I purchased this for my ZA f1,4 50mm and it not only provides good shade and prevents flare, it also absorbs minor shocks from bumps while I'm out and about. It collapses flush with the lens barrel so the lens stands vertically on a flat service or inside my camera cace. Unlike the standard hood, it stays on and doesn't fall off when I'm on the street. Very convenient and practical, especially for the price.
