Great hoodie – Lens Hood for Canon EF-S Reviews

posted by sekihoutai on 01/17/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Bought for canon xsi 18-55 mm IS lens and fits decently well
- Great replacement or buy if you don't have a hood already
- doesn't look too bad compared to real ones
- not visible when shooting without flash
Cons:
- it will be visible when you use the internal flash at 18 MM range and above 35ish mm. Basically when your lens is extended phyiscally
- a little tough to put on at first, be sure to put your ring on MF to reduce risk of damaging motor.
Other:
Provides protection and blocks out the light that does not form images.
Try going for a lens hood in the shape of a pedal, i bought that one as well. Circular hoods do not block out light as well as pedal form. However, pedal will be longer.
Bottomline:
buy it to protect your lens from abuse. Take it off when you use flash.
