B+W 65-069645 Overview

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The B+W #970 wide-angle metal lens hood is made of black-anodized aluminum with light-absorbing flat black ribs on the inside and protects against contrast-reducing, uncontrolled, stray light. It is designed for wide-angle (zoom) lenses with angles of view up to 70° wide (approx. 28mm in 35mm format).

You state that this lens hood "is designed for . ...

You state that this lens hood "is designed for . . . lenses with angles of view up to 70° wide (approx. 28mm in 35mm format)." I suppose that "wide" might indicate a horizontal angle of view of 70° (roughly that of a 26mm lens in "35mm format") or that the diagonal angle of view is about 70° (so about a 31mm lens). Could you please clarify? Thanks.
Asked by: Brian
The manufacturer does not specify if the angle of view is horizontal or diagonal. As it is not dedicated to any specific lens, the angle of view is approximate. While I would guess it would be measured diagonally, it should be compatible for wide angle lenses between the 26mm to 31mm focal length range. In any case, you may purchase the item and test it on your own lens for compatibility, and if you are not happy with its performance, you may return the item for an exchange or refund within 30 days of the original purchase date.

Is it possible to attach a front lens cap with this hood installed?
Asked by: Rob A.
Yes you can. I used a Mamiya 67mm front cap at first but found it fell off too easily. I switched to a Nikon 67mm front cap and it holds on very well. Make sure its Nikon and not a cheap cap or you will be replacing it often!

Can you attach a 49mm lens hood to this hood?
Asked by: Mackenzie
I'm guessing this is a typo and you want to attach a 49mm filter. You want to attach the filter to the lens and then the hood to the filter.

Specifically, will it work with B+W's 49mm slim (MC) UVA Haze No. 010 (2C) BWUVMCS49 (manufacturer number 66-026919)?Thanks again.
Asked by: Anonymous
No, that will not work. That filter does not have any front threads for the hood to screw in to.
