52mm lens hood
This reversible, flower style, lens hood helps prevent lens flare and reduces sun glare by extending and shading the front lens element from exposure. The mounting ring attaches directly to the lens, the hood snaps onto the ring which also provides access to the 52mm filter threads. The hood is detachable from the mounting ring and reversible for storage, leaving any filters and caps in place on the lens regardless of the hood orientation.
Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact. This lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area because of its flower shape. Beautifully designed, this hood fits any lens/filter with thread size 52mm. It covers 24mm wide angle (equivalent to 35mm camera) to give optimum coverage and also adds a professional look to camera.
The main function of the lens hood is to shade the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality. But it will also protect the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles.
