The LHF-X10 Dedicated Lens Hood for Fujifilm FinePix X10 Digital Camera from Vello is designed specifically to fit the Fujifilm FinePix X10 Digital Camera.
Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens, by extending and shading the end of the lens. A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Moreover, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface, to further prevent or limit lens flare. And since the end of the lens is extended, you get the added benefit of extra protection from accidental impact.
