ok

Purely ok, nothing terrible, nothing wow this is tremendous. It seal well on the two sides that have the suction cups, but doesn't on the other two sides. For ultra wide angle shots, it is probably too small. Need to do a lot of experimenting with tripod height, and height of hood on the window, to get camera height to correspond to the hood height in the end.

OK, But Not Great

I purchased the XL (at least I think that is what it is based on measurements). The product worked fine on an Olympus M. Zuko 40-150 lens, which has a thin barrel, but not so great on a Sony G Master 24-70 lens, which has a thick and big barrel. Also, it does not work well if you want to have the lens angled rather than parallel to the window. I also found that it did not work well with a wide angle lens--the image included part of the skirt. I used it most as a handheld shield. Put the shutter on timer, click the shutter button, and then position it above and around the window to block light. If you have live view, this works nicely--although you could use a shirt or piece of cloth to do the same thing. Finally, if you are shooting using a tripod, there is the additional issue of getting the tripod close enough to the window so that the hood suction cups can attach. In my case, that required some repositioning. I used it for photographing out of the windows of the John Hancock Observation Deck in Chicago Overall, the product would work better is it were made out of thin plastic.

Great, portable

Used this two days after it arrived on my doorstep to help me shoot through a window at an observation deck nearby. Being able to suction the lenskirt to the window helped block light, especially on those long exposures! Super portable and convenient to carry around. Not too big that it can't fit into your bag. SO glad I picked this up.

Better than expected

Although I have not yet used the Lens Hood for my intended purpose (photographing fireworks and lightning through windows), I was pleasantly pleased with the quality of the materials used.  I am sure that I will get many years of use with many of my cameras and lenses.

Suction Cup Failure

Not long after buying the XL model, one of the suction cups and the peg that retained it fell out. Despite multiple emails to Lenskirt, asking if I could buy a replacement, they have not replied. The product would be great with better quality control and any customer service at all.
