Lens Hood for Old Nikon FM Camera.
Still in decent shape and solid.
Unused since about 2005. Not very dusty considering the length of time. Perhaps rubber is resistant to dust.
This is a very modest lens hood, but it does, or rather did, the job of filtering out sunlight quite well. I guess I haven’t thought about the need for blocking out sunlight so much. Perhaps it’s because the “new” camera does a better job of handling variable light. I’ll have to a) see if it fits the “new” Nikon D5000 camera and b) :
Status: Get out in the sun and shoot.
