This crown shaped lens hood is just what I needed. Shooting in a very sunny locale without it gave me TOO MUCH light streaming in from the sun and a waterfall behind my subjects. I knew the pictures were likely to be too bright because I could not screen out enough sunlight. Next time I am in such a situation I will be prepared with this hood and a filter.
I wanted to get a set of filters for my new lens to protect it mostly, and these do a great job of that. I have purchased Zeikos before for other lenses and for what it is, it is pretty darn good.
I purchased these filters with the intent of trying to make a coupler to attach to my 'Point and Shoot' digital camera. I figured they would be a bit lager than the actual lens on the camera. They were and with just a bit of work, I have successfully coupled them to the camera. Of course, when the camera shuts OFF, the filter needs to be removed, and with the coupling rings I made from some generic OTC Pill bottles, it works GREAT. They slide on very easily, and hold on tight, until the camera shuts down, where there is enough pressure to have them easily drop off. The pictures I took, so far using them really show a BIG difference with the UV and Polarized filters. I haven't used the florescent filter much. I'm very happy with these filters.
