Heliopan 72019H overview

  • 1Description

The 39mm Long Metal Lens Hood from Heliopan is screwed to the front of the telephoto lens to block stray light and prevents flare on the front element of the lens. The aluminum hood also protects the lens against sudden or accidental impact. The front diameter of the lens hood is the same as it is in the back, which means a lens cap can clip to the front of the hood without having to remove the hood.

Primarily, longer lens hoods are used for telephoto lenses since the field of view is narrower. It is not recommended to place a long lens hood on a wide-angle lens, which could cause vignetting in your image.

Heliopan 72019H reviews

39mm Long Metal Lens Hood is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the 50mm Leica Summicron I've been using the vented hoods for the collapsible 50mm Summicron lens. However, there is still significant intrusion of the hood into the viewfinder frame, especially on a camera such as the Leica IIIF. This nicely machined hood works well, as the straight design minimizes intrusion into the viewfinder space. The hood is 15mm long, and will take a 40mm push on cap. It will also take 39mm center pinch caps. However, I find that the center pinch caps tend to wear the inside paint on hoods with time, so I have preferred to use a push on cap. The machining is very fine, and with a high quality level of finish. There are 39mm filter threads on the front of the cap, so you can easily mount a filter, or the ADVOO close up lens for the IIIG without having to take everything apart. You can also mount another Heliopan 39mm short (7.5mm) or long hood if you want extra hood length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price for an essential item Not much to say about a lens hood. Well made, fit for purpose, fit for use. Less than half the price than the comparable Leica product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens Hood Just the thing to get rid of the flare on my old lens. Images are now crisp and clear.
