The LH-X100 Lens Hood with Filter Adapter Ring is for the legendary Fujifilm X100 camera. ... more
Beside serving as a lens hood, it can also be used for mounting 49mm filters with the adapter ring. A lens hood is indispensable for shading the lens from the sun. Without the lens hood, there will be sun-inducing light flare that causes your photos to appear dull, glaring and unflattering.
"...ratings I opted on the Fujifilm Finepix X100, the most desirable camera of 2011.
The X100 is not the cheapest of cameras out there, with a scaling price of between £599-£999, I certainly could have made a cheaper starting selection as a “grown up camera”. But it’s the retro look that really swings it, that tough alloy case, encased in a imitation leather through it’s central point, makes it look so much like the camera I used when studying photography ..."

The FinePix X100 features a custom 12.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS high-performance sensor, internally optimized and developed exclusively for this model. Optimization of the angle-of-incidence in conjunction with the specially developed lens maximizes light gathering efficiency extending to the perimeter of the sensor for a sharper image with exceptional clarity. When shooting HD movies, the combination of the large-sized sensor and the large aperture F2 lens, lets users create a soft out-of-focus image - a capability not available in conventional compact cameras. The ideal combination of a fixed focal length lens, high-sensitivity sensor (approximately 10 times the sensitivity of a conventional compact) and a high-performance image processor captures extremely high quality images from low sensitivity to high sensitivity. In standard form, the planned ISO range is from 200 to 6400, but this can be expanded to include 100 and 12800.The FinePix X100 is a high precision digital compact camera that combines modern technology with a traditional camera design to deliver the ultimate in image quality. Featuring an APS-C CMOS sensor (12.3 megapixel), a FUJINON 23mm Single Focal Length Fixed F2 lens, a 2.8" LCD 460K, and the world's first Hybrid Viewfinder, the FinePix X100 captures exceptionally high quality images.
