Ricoh GH-2 overview

  • 1Description

The Ricoh GH-2 Lens Hood & Adapter is a two-piece set of lens accessories for the GR Digital Camera and GR Digital III camera. After you remove the camera's ring cap, the adapter twists & clicks onto the body, bayonet-style.

The adapter allows you to screw in filters that have a 43mm diameter. You can also attach the lens hood to the front of the adapter, whether or not there is a filter attached. The lens hood features a ridged interior surface that's designed to deflect light.

The adapter is required for using Ricoh's GW-2 0.75x wide conversion lens for the GR DIgital Camera and GR Digital III.

Ricoh GH-2 reviews

GH-2 Lens Hood & Adapter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A simple essential if... want to protect your lens, to shield it from sharp lighting conditions or to utilize the Wide Angle Conversion Lens. On first inspection the two pieces seem fragile, they are very lightweight but remember too the size of camera you are putting them on. Installation requires a little finesse, removing the outer lens ring, lining up the adapter properly and then giving it a partial turn. It's not difficult though. When installed on the camera the coupling is firm and won't fall off. This unit is actually quite balanced and doesn't cause the camera to list forward in your grip. The lens extends into the adapter when you turn the power on so the hood remains fixed in place shrouding that fantastic 28mm. As for appearances, the finish matches the Ricoh body very well though the adapter and hood while light have some bulk to them. The GRD may not fit in your pocket like this unless you're wearing a coat or have large pocketed cargo pants. If you are using the Ricoh Soft Case GC-4 with the top off, having the Lens Hood hanging out will be no problem and again remember that 21mm wide angle option. All in all I rate this product at a 4 mostly because I haven't had it long enough to determine if light weight is also durable. I am thinking, having heard from others, that it will be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little attachment PRO:The lens hood is not effectively NEEDED for the Ricoh GR but it does help with those extraneous flares of the sun and it makes the little camera look very cool. It is also a great little tool for supporting the camera either in horizontal or vertical mode. The camera will stand on its own without it but it adds a bit more security with the set up. CON: with the lens hood on the camera looses its wonderful compact size and transportability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GH-2 a must have hood for your RicohGRD3 This product is great! first of all it hides the unwanted light, and it makes picture's color stand out. this product is good too because it's an essential adapter for the ricoh gw-2 (a wide angle lens) both together makes your camera amazing =P things that is not great about it.. it's probably the fragility of the item.. I m so scared to drop it and break the parts. wish it was made with metal, so it can stand the tear and wear.
