Photographer Josh Smith creates the Ultimate Lens Hood, an accessory added to a camera to eliminate reflective glare when shooting through glass. It is a collapsing silicone cone that can be stretched to fit multiple camera lenses -- it can be attached to DSLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, M43s and Bridge lenses. The idea to create the Ultimate Lens Hood stemmed from Smith's trip to Japan back in the year 2015 when most of his photographs at high towers were ruined by the reflective visuals.

The camera accessory can be pulled back in reverse to protect the camera from weather conditions as it has been tested through dust, mud, water, snow and more. Additionally, there is the changing pad included acting as a mat for lenses to keep it from rolling away and protect it from scratches on rough surfaces.
