Heliopan 71048H Overview

The Heliopan 48mm 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 48mm filter threads and a 0.75mm thread pitch. The mounting ring also features corresponding 48mm front filter threads which can be used to accommodate filters, lens caps, or other threaded accessories.

  • Fits lenses with 48mm 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 48mm 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 71048H Reviews

Nicer than a plastic hood!

I've never used a collapsible rubber hood before... It's an incredible improvement over the normal plastic hood. I leave tis on all this time.. It doesn't fall off, it fits in the form-fitted camera case, and it's just small enough to not interfere too much with my rangefinder focus on my Canonet QL17 GIII. No more unwanted lens flair, and I don't have another part to keep track of.

question

The hood in the photo looks warped, is this an issue with this hood?
Asked by: Laura G.
I have the 40.5mm version and it is round as you would expect - not warped
