The General Brand 49mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood helps to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by shading the front element of the lens. Its collapsible, rubber design enables it to remain on your lens at all times without requiring much additional space and it also serves to protect the lens from accidental impact. This lens hood has a 49mm threaded screw-in design and is intended for use with normal focal lengths.

General Brand NP11049 reviews

49mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap & Adequate Protection I bought this to serve as a replacement lens hood for a 35mm focal length equivalent prime for a mirrorless lens camera. As I might have to trim it, I didn't want to spend much. As it turns out, there is no vignetting on this lens, despite its asymmetrical form. That is, when the hood was removed from its packaging and untelescoped, it emerged cockeyed. I have other rubber hoodsthat have cracked or greyed with age, but none with this particular annoyance. Not enough of a problem to return, and it retains functionality. Maybe my sense of aesthetics will someday overcome thrift and I will try a more expensive alternative. But it's good for now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has some flaws Product works BUT - mounting ring is somewhat deep and will cause vignetting on any lens with a reasonable wide angle lens. tried on a sd samsung entry level camcorder with the 49mm hood mounted on a 39mm to 49mm stepup ring. At full wide the hood mounting ring causes vignetting and is present until I zoom out about 20%. Hood does work fine, at full wide on older sony camcorder. Also the rubber hood is not perfectly round - appears to have taken a 'set' or has non-uniform rubber thickness, Hey you get what you pay for!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why Pay More? I use this hood on my Pentax 35mm f/2.4 and 50mm f/1.4 since both lenses are 49mm thread. It has a metal thread, which means it will last a while but also scares me because the filter threads on my lenses are plastic. I am scared to death of cross-threading the lens. My only complaint is the hood is a tad shallow, it doesn't cut off quite as much light as it could, especially on a normal and short telephoto lens (with the APS-C crop). However, when fitted on a full-frame camera I'm sure the shallow hood is an asset.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done I've never liked those plastic lens hoods. They're cumbersome and not very attractive. The all rubber lens hood by General Brand does a great job of preventing sun flare. Moreover, it's retractable so I can roll it up and get it out of the way when I don't need it. Unlike my plastic lens hoods which I'm constantly having to take off, I leave this one on all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Its an easy to use collapsing rubber hood. I use it on an FA50/1.4 It would be nice to know the exact angle of view it restricts since I think it could be a bit longer for this lens but seems to do an adequate job. in either position it seems to add a little cushion to protect the lens a little(at least in my mind)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Provides resistance to sun glare While hood fits my 49mm lens perfectly, it cannot be left on the lens as the inside diameter is less than the external 49mm. As a result it prevents replacing the lens cap that came with the lens when its stored or not in use. Its a minor inconvenience but nonetheless an annoyance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really Really Bad... I have had many of these rubber hoods for different lenses over the years, and ordered one for a Sony 50mm f1.8 that I added. The first one came in molded off center. I contacted customer service, and they sent me another, but it two had a flaw in the way that it as folded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just OK I like these rubber hoods generally, but I have had the experience of being able to see the hood in the corners of the photos (when the hood is fully expanded). And, these hoods will not likely protect the lens in a drop or a simply bang against something hard.
