LEE Wide Angle Hood

| Comments

Available to buy from Dale Photographic or WEX.

Hoods or lens shades help improve contrast by stopping out of frame light source entering the lens. LEE filters are square filters that can be used for effects or managing dynamic range, however as they mount in front of the lens with a holder you can no longer use your lenses standard hood. LEE have a standard, universal and wide angle hoods available.

LEE do not provide many specs for the hood on their website. To help others decide if this is right for them I have included measurements and pictures of mine in different configurations.
