IN UNDER 30 MINUTES, WE TRIPLED OUR MINIMUM QUOTA!!
Ladies and Gentlemen, we're moving forward with this!
Is this really worth it?
If you've gotten to this page, you know three things about the Universal Lens Hood;
1. I need to validate the ULH to continue forward, eventually building out an entire Kickstarter campaign.
2. To know for sure it's a good idea and there's enough interest, I need 25 people to pre-order it here.
3. I’m thinking of selling them at retail for $50.00 a piece, with a Kickstarter price of around $30.00, but right now I’m asking for your support of $15.00. (An additional $5-$15 will be added to cover shipping.)
In exchange, I'll send you one of our golden samples of the lens hoods (I'll send it to you before we launch our campaign) and make sure to feature you on our Kickstarter page when we go live.
With your support here, it'll provide me all the input needed to move forward with KUVRD's next product :)

Want a lens hood that actually fits ALL of your lenses, works with ANY sized ND/CPL filter, isn’t bulky and actually folds to fit anywhere in your bag, is quicker & easier to put on than traditional lens hoods and doesn’t fall off when bumped so its never lost, never creates dark spots in the corners of your frame, completely removes reflection/glare when shooting through windows and glass, is easy to clean and allows 24/7/365 access to the adjustment controls and switches on your lens, is sturdy and strong and protects your lens in any temperature or environment, comes with a Lifetime Replacement Warranty AND costs 1/2 the price of any top-tier name-brand lens hood?
Then our Universal Lens Hood is for you!
It doesn’t take a lot of time in using a conventional lens hood before you realize there are a lot limitations with them; they’re bulky and take up tons of space in your bag, they’re hard to twist on and off, easily lost, they prevent you from using filters, on and the on list goes.
I’m a little hard headed -I’m sure my wife would agree- but I set out to fixing the issues I kept running into.
And from that, came the Universal Lens Hood. Top three best features are that it stretches over any sized lens, making it universal, easy to put on yet never falls off so it’s not being lost or forgotten somewhere, is foldable and can be stored anywhere in your bag, and actually works with and holds any kind of ND, CPL or UV filter. I hated that the twist on lens hoods were so difficult to use and yet provided minimal enhancements when shooting.
Our Universal Lens Hood will provide more protection than any standard lens hood, especially against weather. We’ll make the outer rim sturdy enough to hold its shape but malleable enough to completely enclose on a glass or transparent surface, removing glares and reflections. We'll apply a double coating of silicone dioxide on the exterior to ensure that it’s easy to wash and rinse off after a grimy use while still being able to use it as a place mat to set your camera gear when it’s not in use and act as a great substitute for a frisbee!!
The idea behind it was to eliminate common inconveniences that photographers face... that really I dealt with. I always want as much convenience, peace of mind and security for my expensive gear as I can get which is why every one of our lens hood comes with a Lifetime Replacement Warranty.
So! Let us know if this is worth pursuing and continuing to develop! Thanks backers!
