Default Some accessories needed

Well, I was looking into getting a lens hood for my HS10.

I've been looking at 58mm hoods online, and every single one of them had gotten bad reviews. I'm looking for the tulip-shape type.

Also looking for some filters, especially UV. Anyone?

I really never found a good hood for my older HS10. The three I bought used on line never worked out as they all had issues at the wide end of the spectrum cutting off some of the frame. I;d look into getting the lens hood that is made for the HS20 directly from Fuji. I;d send them an e-mail and see if they can give you a part number and price for that,

As for filters I keep a UV filter on my HS20 and used the same one on my HS10. I use one made by B+W and have been very happy with it over the years. I have a Circular Pol filter as well made by Tiffen that I used a few times around a local lake shooting into the water but that is all I use it for......

Hope this helps

It will fit? It is 58mm? And I heard about the wide angle getting cut off, not a huge issue.

Default Amazon.com

Check out the photography section (accessories) of Amazon.com. They have a lot of interesting equipment at great prices and I've seen tulip lens hoods there.

That is where I looked. All of their hoods got horrible reviews.

I was looking for a sunshade too and opted for the original Fuji part, if I may suggest: http://cgi.ebay.com/Fuji-Fujifilm-LH...item43a5be1287

I ordered it last week and waiting for it to arrive.

G'day all

I find most of my lens hood needs are when using 10x to 20x zoom...
The tulip hood as supplied is effective only in the 1x to [about] 3x zoom range... after that the angle seen by the lens of so much less than the angle of lens-hood coverage it loses its effectiveness

As such, I just use my hand over the lens [same as hand over the eyes to shade my eyes], but have made my own lens hood for the over 10x zoom use. I made it from a plastic drinking glass about 20cm [8inches] long, cut the bottom out of it, painted it all over with blackboard paint [dead-black], then glued a UV filter into the bottom to screw it into the camera

Maybe this is possible for you too
Regards, Phil
