Default Lens Hood

Any one had experience using one of these? The one I'm looking at is black rubber and would be mounted on a Tiffen Megaplus lense on my G2. Didn't know if the black rubber would affect the intake of light through the lens.

A lens hood is a great way to reduce lens flare and also to protect the camera lens itself. The generic rubber ones are better than nothing at all provided that they fit fairly well. It is possible to get vignetting (dark parts of the edges of your picture) if the lens hood isn't the right size for that lens.
