Made from high impact plastic, the 55mm Tulip Flower Lens Hood for Canon Nikon DSLR is the improved version of a flower-shaped lens hood. It includes 55 mm center pinch lens cap with a leash that fits inside the hood or over lens filter thread. Its professional tulip shape design (also known as ‘flower’ or ‘petal’ shape) allows for greater versatility and it is perfect for standard zoom lenses.
It is suitable for digital, film and video cameras. The addition of a lens hood can help prevent flares, those circles of light that can accompany images where a strong light source is just outside the frame. It features a rear locking ring to allow a user to rotate the hood in either direction and capture the exact amount of shading desired. This lens hood has also the added benefit of providing extra protection to your lens from accidental bumps or scratches.
Lens hoods are one of the most important accessories you can purchase to improve the quality of your photos, and usually the most overlooked by beginner and amateur photographers. This extremely solid and lightweight lens hood is specifically designed for a tight and secure fit with no wobbling or cross-threading.
