Fuji X100 compatible lens filter adapter and hood by JJC,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JJC LH-JX100 Lens Adapter and Hood for Fujifilm Finepix X100, X100s, X100T, X70 - Silver (Electronics)
Five stars for value for money and functionality.
For reasons I won't go into, we own both the real Fuji hood and the one by JJC.
The example from JJC is almost identical.
As stated by another reviewer, the colour being the only difference between the two (this difference in colour being visible only when they are both in hand together and not really noticable when on the camera).
They are both made of aluminium alloy (not plastic) and they both fit the camera perfectly.
On the Fuji example, one of the three mounting 'fins' is in the 'top of lens' position when screwed fully home. The JJC matches the Fuji's position exactly.
The X100 camera functions perfectly with both.
At the time of writing, the price for the JJC adapter/hood is about one quarter of the Fuji one.
I would buy the JJC first. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with it, I would then buy the Fuji one and use the JJC for the 'rough stuff' where the hood may be knocked and damaged.
The JJC example is not a cheap lens hood, but the Fuji one is far more expensive and functions no better whilst in service on the camera.
