Accessories for Helios 44-2 lens?

Are there any accessories I can purchase for the Helios 44-2 lens? Maybe a lens hood or something? I haven't found anything online and not sure what "size" I should buy since there are some universal ones on eBay.
Also looking for lens filters.
Thanks!
Nicole

The 44-2 has a front thread of 49mm so any 49mm screw in lens hood should work.

Something like this...

Unless like me you are using it solely for the CA and swirly bokeh.

Not sure why would you want CA (an example could be nice), but I'm certain that a lens hood won't have an effect on the bokeh

This is the sort of thing I use the Helios for. I'm not eve sure if mine can focus to infinity.

You don't need anything, the lens is set deep enought that a hood is not necessary and any filter will
just take away from the pic quality.

This is my experience of this fine lens as well.
