  • 1Description

The Fujifilm Lens Hood For X10 Camera attaches to the front of the lens on the Fujifilm X10 camera. It acts as a sunshade, keeping out unwanted light and helping to prevent glare. It also guards the lens against impact if you get a little too close to your subject, as it sticks out a bit from the front of the lens.

FUJIFILM 16198744 reviews

Lens Hood For X10 Camera is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adequate as a step-up ring First of all, Fuji never should have given the lens a 40mm thread to begin with. But it is what it is and if you want to use a filter, this hood steps up to a standard 52mm. That's the good news. The bad is that the 12mm difference in diameter eats up a lot of the lower right corner of the viewfinder (yes, I know about M cameras, but this is more than that). In addition the filter is positioned so there is a gap between the filter and the lens so optical considerations aside, the lens is not protected to the degree you would expect. Lastly, no cap is provided, either for the for the hood (a 58mm snap will work) or for the optional 52mm filter. Because this is a fairly elaborate, two-piece item, the no-name brand versions are almost as expensive. I'd say, look for 40mm step-up rings which are starting to appear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solved the problem Fuji made an engineering mistake with the thread standard on the lens of the X10 but this Hood Solved the problem. 1. Install Lens Hood on camera. The threads are designed to work with the X10. 2. Remove top half of Lens Hood and install a 52mm Skylight Filter (or other 52mm filter. 3. Screw top half of Lens Hood back on. 4. Install a 58mm lens cap. Voila.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better if no openings in back I use this hood paired with a 52mm Hoya UV filter (also purchased from B&H). The hood screws on easily and can be removed easily. The UV filter was also easily installed. If you plan on using the hood with the Fuji X10 case- the hood needs to be taken off before the case will cover the lens; I did not see info on the case or hood specs that mention this. Regarding the openings in the back- If you're only using the hood this is not an issue- but with the UV filter on, the openings in the adapter allow dust etc to flow in to the back of the filter. You can use a rocket blower sometimes, but usually need to remove and clean. This is an inconvenient design- I would have provided an additional star if these openings were not there. Thank you B&H and Fuji-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Finishing Touch I carry my Fuji X10 ready for use. It is not in a case or protective bag. I didn't like having to remove the lens cap every time I wanted to take a shot. I also worried about losing the cap and the lens being unprotected. The lens hood seemed a good solution. It shades the lens and allows the use of easily available 52mm filters. The hood is metal and fits onto the lens smoothly. It is well made and my protective filter fit perfectly too. The only possible negatives are that the hood does interfere somewhat with the view through the camera's OVF. Also users with large hands may find it difficult to get their fingers in between the hood and camera to turn the lens so as to power the camera on or off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Filter Solution I bought this lens hood, not for the hood, but for the filter adapter. The X10 has a very strange thread size in which almost no filters are availabe in. Using the adapter you can use 52mm filters which are quite common. Solves the problem that everyone has with regards to filters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At B&Hs price this was worth it. For the X10 and X100 there have been complaints about the Fuji MSRP for the lens hoods and adaptors, as well about the way there are vents in the adaptor. I've used it only for a short time but it's very high quality and just plain old works. I've mated a Hoya UV filter to it and it's perfect. I recommend this for the X10 over the cheap Chinese knock offs, or trying to fit a 40.5mm filter directly to the X10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from finely machined Although expensive for what it is, it is well made and fits the X10 perfectly. I have it on the camera all the time with a multi-coated UV filter so that I don't have to fiddle with, and possibly lose, the lens cap. It does make it slightly more difficult to turn the camera on and off as it can get in the way of your fingers when trying to grip the lens barrel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice, but... Unlike the X100, the adapter and the hood for the Fuji X10 sell as one piece that screws apart. The adapter allows you to attach a filter or the hood. However, the hood obscures about one quarter of the viewfinder. Not a problem if you use the LCD for framing; very annoying if you like using the viewfinder. It's an attractive looking piece, especially if you want your X10 to look like a mini Leica, but probably more of a novelty than an essential accessory.
