Nothing says I’m unique more than a customized piece of gear. Now Kapsones from the Netherlands provides a whole new niche of customization – customizing a lens hood.
The name is Kapsones and they are printed by demand on an Ultimaker 3D printer using reinforced PLA (Poly Lactic Acid), a biodegradable material.
The company offers a wide range of colors and embossing to match your mood.
There are currently 4 designs to choose from: Baroque, Knitted, Stealth & Street; and a wide array of hideous colors. Per Kapsones, the color cast from a colored hood is “not enough to notice”.
Here is the nice bit, each hood is made to order and will only be printed once everything is confirmed.
The company currently supports 4 lenses, all Canon zooms, but promise to expand once any model gets enough requests.

P.S. If you want to spoil any other lens, you can give her a Carbon Fiber Lens Hood too.
