Delivered: ULH: The Ultimate Lens Hood
“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.
The Ultimate Lense Hood helps to take reflection free photos, videos, and time lapses through glass. It has helped me to be able to get great shots that I may not have been able to otherwise. You don’t need to be a professional to appreciate the benefits of this tool. I’ve struggled with window glare photos on vacation while trying to get city shots, wanting to get photos of my kids playing in the backyard through the window, and taking beautiful drives up the canyon taking photos from the car. Not only is it helpful with glare, it can also offer protection for your camera as well. By pulling back the silicone hood, you can create a shelter for your camera from damaging elements.
The Ulitimate Lense Hood fits easily into a camera bag. It is made out of silicone so you can bend and stretch it easily, and it can also lay completely flat. Putting it on my camera was not hard. I simply stretched the silicone center around my lense. The black silicone prevents any other colors from bleeding into your photo and also prevents reflection off of tables. It is great to use when you are trying to prevent your photos from backlighting that is created by having the light too bright behind your subject.
The hood can adjust to take photos from any angle without having to remove it from the camera. I found that it was very simple to use. It will also leave no marks on the window so you don’t have to worry about cleaning the window when you are finished. One of the reasons I was excited to purchase this tool was the ability to get drone like shots without actually having a drone. I can stand in a city high rise and not have to worry about editing out the glare later. It is much more effective to start out your photos without a glare than to have to go in and edit them.
This is a very inexpensive but useful tool that has been easy to add to my camera bag. I have received a lot of benefits from it already, and I am excited to take it with me on vacation so that I can finally get those great city shots. The Ultimate Lense Hood comes in two different sizes for larger and smaller cameras. You can view the Ultimate Lense Hood at www.ultimatelensehood.com .
