Heliopan 71055H Overview

The Heliopan 55mm 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 55mm filter threads and a 0.75mm thread pitch. The mounting ring also features corresponding 55mm front filter threads which can be used to accommodate filters, lens caps, or other threaded accessories.

  • Fits lenses with 55mm 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 55mm 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
