ULH: The Ultimate Lens Hood
The Ultimate Lens Hood (or ULH) is a silicone lens hood available in a range of sizes that will stretch to fit any camera and completely remove glare and reflection, allowing you to take clean and clear photos, videos and time lapses as if the glass was never there.
If you've ever had a photo through a window ruined by reflection, then ULH is for you!
What does it do?
Gone are the days of struggling to take photos through windows without catching that glare that ruins your images. Even better? No longer will you have to spend hours in photoshop removing reflections when you get home! Whether you're shooting through a hotel window, a high-rise observation deck, the window of a bus or through an enclosure at the zoo - the ULH makes a massive difference, transforming a bad photo into a great one even before you start editing!
Anti-static coating is applied to both sides of the ULH during manufacturing and doesn’t rub off. It gives the ULH a silky smooth finish and helps to stop bits of fluff, dirt and grit from getting stuck to it!
ULHgo is the medium sized and most popular ULH lens hood and will fit any lens with a diameter of 50mm or more. Fitting lenses with filter threads of 49/52mm, up to 82mm and any make including all the most popular brands Cannon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax and Nikkon.
FOUR SIZES, EVERY LENS COVERED
The ULHoriginal is the large in the range. It fits the biggest lenses (82mm filter or more) and the widest angles too.
The ULHgo is the travel-size hood that fits the widest range. It’s ideal for most 49-82mm filter lenses.
For compact, pocket and M43 cameras, the 30-50mm stretch-range ULHmini is ideal.
And for smartphone users - the ULHmobile is a must have!
PROTECTION FROM THE ELEMENTS.
Stretch the ULH, ULHgo or ULHmini on in reverse to protect your camera and lens body from the worst that nature can throw at you!
Tested with water, snow, mud, sand, dirt, dust and even frying pan fat - the Ultimate Lens Hood has you covered without the need for bulky, fiddly or expensive additional accessories!
THE CHANGING PAD
An unplanned but extremely handy usage for the Ultimate Lens Hood is to throw it down on rough surfaces to protect you're camera from scratches.
You can use it to stop lenses rolling away on flat surfaces have it as a clean and stable place to change lenses when out and about on a shoot.
It’s also ideal to add a bit of extra padding to bags - to protect both your camera from bumps, but also your back from hard corners of things in your bag!

Will it work on the iPhone 11 Pro Max?
After getting hands on with the new handsets from Apple, I can confirm that YES the ULHmobile fits and works with the new iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max. The Telephoto and Wide angle lenses can be tilted to a huge range of angles without issue, but the ultra-wide lens must be pushed a little closer against the glass so the hood does not cause a vignette. The ULHmobile also works perfectly with other 3-camera phones like the Samsung S10 and P30pro.
Pan and Tilt
Optimised to give a great balance between hood-size and versatility, the ULHmobile allows you an extraordinary range of both Pan and Tilt, giving you the freedom to get the shot you're looking for every time.
Easy on and off
It was key to make sure the ULHmobile could be fitted to any phone regardless of case size or thickness. The solution was to use a smooth plastic clip that literally hooks over the edge of your phone in seconds and won't mark or damage either your screen or case.
How do I use it?
The ULH can be used freehand or on a tripod. The freedom to move around without any complicated setup is a real bonus in popular tourist locations and zoos where lots of wandering people make available space limited. Not to mention many of these venues have banned tripods entirely.
Soft by Design
The ULH Lens hood is intentionally soft by design. This allows our Lens hood to fit more lenses in your bag by being stretchy. Take tighter angle one handed shots through glass without the hood lifting away and letting light leak in and finally pack down really small for the tightest space in your camera bag
As well as a soft touch anti-static coating that gives the ULH a silky smooth finish and helps to stop bits of fluff, dirt and grit from getting stuck to it, we also include a soft microfibre carry bag perfect for traveling and keeping your ULHgo clean.
