Lens hood

I know this may be a somewhat stupid question. I'm wondering who makes the best lens hoods, with a good selection in the filter screw-on type. Anyone?

Best (and most expensive); Chroziel. I have the DV 4x4 mattebox system with PD150 base. Very well built.

I agree with Martin, Chrosziel is the best hands down. Arri makes a nice clamp-on box of course, not too difficult to adapt to your lens with the right adaptor ring.

Frank, what price range did you have in mind?

Thanks. Price range? I'm only looking for a couple of the screw on lens hoods, not a matte box. I'm looking at some big, thick rubber ones. One is for the 52mm size, the other one I have to check first. Someone suggested "Hoodman," or something like that. I want the type that's not soft but firm, if you know what I mean (?)

Thanks. I guess I have to look at a bunch. I want the heavy-duty type, with hard rubber---to give the lens area a bit of protection from bumps. The ones I have right now are too soft.

That B+W lens hood I mentioned looks pretty heavy duty to me. Note that it is a fixed type and not one of the collapsible style hoods.
