MASSA Standard Metal Lens Hood & Push Cap (46mm)

New product

All metal, low profile lens hoods with push caps. Designed to prevent flaring and washed out images from indirect harsh light while protecting your lens' front element, which in turn negates the need for protective (UV or clear) filters, thus maximising the light reaching the sensor.  Made from CNC machined aluminium alloy, they are light, durable and very compact.

Low Profile Lens Hoods & Lens Hood Push Caps:  Compact Protection for Front Elements

The purpose of these screw-on MASSA Lens Hoods & Push Caps is to: 

  • maximise image quality by protecting against strong indirect light causing flaring and/or washing out the image and by keeping precipitation clear of the front element to prevent unwanted image blurring.
  • provide protection for the front element of the lens by keeping the front element recessed and out of harm's way. Furthermore, when a push cap is secured to a lens hood (rather than the lens itself), there is almost zero possibility that the cap can interact with the front element of the lens. This high level of protection negates the need for UV or clear protective filters which slightly degrade the native optics of the lens. Without a filter, the amount light reaching the camera's sensor is maximised.
  • achieve these objectives with as little impact on the lens' compact form factor as possible.

For more on why these lens hoods and lens hood caps were made, who they're for and who they're not suitable for and GPN Media's partnership with MASSA please see their companion piece "Low Profile Metal Lens Hoods and Push Caps".


The Standard (S) general purpose lens hoods are very similar to the popular HN-40 (for the Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm lens and are suitable for lenses with a (35mm equivalent) focal length of between ~40mm and 85mm, i.e. from so-called "normal" / natural to portrait.

These are currently only available for 46mm filter threads (GPN Media hope to expand this range in the future).

The lens hoods and push caps are light yet very strong and made from CNC machined anodised aluminium. They feature discrete branding and product codes on the inside of the lens hood cap and the outer rim of the lens hood. When the cap is in place, little to no branding is visible. The product codes make it easy to identify which cap goes with which hood.
