Heliopan 71540H overview

  • 1Description

The Heliopan 40.5mm Screw-in Rubber Lens Hood is designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering a lens by extending and shading its front end. This prevents lens flare 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, and the 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 hood to a lens with 40.5mm filter threads and a 0.75mm thread pitch. The mounting ring also features corresponding 40.5mm front filter threads which can be used to accommodate filters, lens caps, or other threaded accessories.

  • Fits lenses with 40.5mm filter threads and a 0.75mm pitch
  • Blocks light from the sides of a lens's front element
  • Prevents lens flare and improves image contrast
  • Rolls back for storage or to avoid vignetting with wide-angle lenses
  • Double-threaded connecting ring allows a filter with 40.5mm rear threads with a 0.75mm pitch to be attached after the lens hood is screwed onto a filter or lens
  • Accepts lens caps
  • Provides protection from accidental impacts to a lens's front element
  • UV and temperature resistant

    Heliopan 71540H reviews

    40.5mm Screw-in Rubber Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly good. I put this hood onto my Sony A6300 with the kit 16-50mm lens. I does vignette ever so slightly in the upper left corner at the widest angle. I'm keeping it on the camera though since it does provide a bit of protection and works well in every other capacity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for the Olympus 14-42 mm This lens Hood is exactly what I wantedd it is perfect for the 14-42 mm lens on my Olympus E-pl1 it is used collapsed for the wide angle 14 mm end of th lenses focal length and extended for the 42 mm end of the focal length. A lens hood is a necessity in my view and this one is perfect for this lens. Being rubber it also cushions inadvertant bumps when in a crowded room etc.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top quality hood This guy fits perfectly, and I can even get the original Nikon lens cap on the lens with it in place. Other reviews suggested to spend the extra money and get the better quality product, which I did. I'm not an expert on rubber products, but it appears to me to be pretty high quality. I'll know how it holds up after a few hundred photos. I'll know better then how well it works and holds up. But for now I'm giving it 4 stars, as it appears to be a top notch product.
