Lens hoods, also known as lens shades should be regarded as an essential accessory for both professionals and hobbyists. Failing to use a lens hood can have a contrast-reducing effect on the color saturation and brilliance of your image. Although imperceptible to our eyes, an unprotected front lens can have an enormous scattering effect on the light. This scattered light can have an adverse effect on our pictures. The use of a lens hood not only shields our lens from side or backlight, it also reduces unwanted reflections and protects the front lens from unwanted rain. The rubber hood by premium manufacturer Heliopan is made of a special rubber compound that makes the hood foldable, resistant to UV light and temperature resistant. The rubber hood is molded tightly around a metal mounting ring. Make sure that the lens hood matches the focal length of your lens. If you are using a wide-angle or zoom lens, a too narrow aperture will lead to shadowing in the corners. Unlike conventional lens hoods, the rubber hood by Heliopan can be folded down to decrease its size. This particular feature allows the rubber hood to be used with wide angle lenses.
