The Mk III is a fusion of the Mk I and Mk II lens hoods.
It is exactly the same shape as the Mk I, with a slightly wider and more rounded opening than the Mk II and is 1mm shorter.
Square lens hoods do a better job protecting the sensor from unwanted sun flare, your sensor is square after all.
Our hood has a narrow opening minimising the risk of something coming into contact with the lens, especially wandering fingers. But does not cause vignetting or cast a shadow when using the flash.
This lens hood is made up of two parts, a sleeve that screws onto the thread on the lens and the hood, which slides over the sleeve.
This hood is compatible with our adapter ring and comes with 1 rubber cap.
What is a Squarehood?
Squarehood is a slip on lens hood made for all Fujifilm x100 cameras and the x70 camera. Designed in Stockholm by the New Zealand photographer Thomas Mansell.
"I wanted to design a lens hood that both complemented the aesthetics of the camera and secondly, wouldn’t add too much bulk to it. After all, one of the main reasons I purchased the x100f was that it was compact and I could take it everywhere.
During the design process, I worked hard to design a lens hood that met these requirements and I believe I have achieved this with the square hood."
How to use?
The hood is made up of two parts: the inner sleeve and the outer hood. Screw the inner sleeve onto the filter thread of the camera lens finger tight. Then the lens slips over the collar which is then tightened into place with the two grub screws.
The Mk2 also comes with a rubber dust cap and an adjustment tool.
Fits directly to the x100, x100S, x100T x100F, X100V and x70 (no extension ring is needed).
