One would think that a lens hood is a simple and straightforward sort of thing. We’ve all got them for our various lenses to help prevent the sun from flaring into the front element. But flare isn’t the only thing that lens hoods can be good for, as The Ultimate Lens Hood is out to prove.
The Ultimate Lens Hood (we’ll call it ULH from now on) is basically a black stretchy silicone cone that goes over the end of your lens. It serves the purpose of a regular lens hood (to a degree), but also allows you to eliminate unwanted reflections, and protect your gear from the elements.
