Buy the genuine Kodak product. You'll be better of in the long run. Photography almost demands that you buy the better product every time, otherwise your pics suffer.

Hope this helps.

I agree with Bob. You do want to be careful with lens hoods. For the most part, they need to be matched to a specific lens to be effective. The wrong lens hood will either not do its job, and allow stray light to hit the lens, or it will cause vignetting in the corners.

I'd stick with the genuine Kodak product; and while you're at it, be sure to get the 55mm adaptor. There is a 52mm adaptor that works fine in most situations, but from what I've heard, the 55mm is better.

Cheers,

I've got a rubber fold up hood that costs about 5 bucks at wolf camere, that comes in handy every now and then, It screws onto the skylite filter that I keep on the adapter and has 55mm threads so I can screw the TCON17 or the polorizing filter right on to it. I've found that most of the time you have to crop the photo's taken with the hood as there is a little bit of the hood showing on the photo's. When it is rolled back it acts as a shock absorber for the lens and adapter. What follows is an example of what happens when you pull back to wide angle and have the hood unrolled.
