5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tulip Hood --- Works Perfectly!
Was a little worried about the fit and ease of use after reading some of the reviews but am very pleased. I figured out that the notched ring on the base of hood screws up and down to release and anchor the hood to the lense. The key is to tighten the screw ring on the hood, carefully line up the hood and camera with the arrow up as directions state and with light even...

1.0 out of 5 stars This thing sucks!
The threads on this lens hood don't fit well at all with the threads on a Canon lens. It just pops off all the time. I think spending a little more money to get a better one would be well worth it.

I am very disappointed in this Professional 58mm Digital Tulip Flower Lens Hood For canon. When installed on a telephoto lens it gets in the way of the operation of the lens. The lens hood is made of plastic and is easily cross threaded. I wish I could have handled this hood before I had ordered it. This is not worth the money to send it back. Look at another lens hood. You get what you pay for.
Eynpire Camera did process this order in a very timely manner.

As other reviewers have noted this hood would not thread onto my canon 18-55mm lens properly which renders it useless. It now sits on my desk as a reminder not to waste money on cheap accessories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tulip Hood --- Works Perfectly!, October 22, 2011

Was a little worried about the fit and ease of use after reading some of the reviews but am very pleased. I figured out that the notched ring on the base of hood screws up and down to release and anchor the hood to the lense. The key is to tighten the screw ring on the hood, carefully line up the hood and camera with the arrow up as directions state and with light even pressure screw on. This doesnt require but about 2 turns - then the trick is to unwind the ring down toward the lens to firmly anchor the hood to the lens!!! Voila! Anchored! My other concern were reports that the lens cover wouldnt work and mine did!!! So I attached the lens cap holder on the cap and it elastically attaches to the lens shaft!!! The only thing I found disappointing was that there were no real directions especially for difficulties but I guess I could have called on the seller for assistance. Wish I had been braver and bought 2 more of them for my other lenses! For the $6 pricetag its a great deal!

This review is from: A&R BRAND Professional 58mm Digital Tulip Flower Lens Hood For canon 18-55mm , 28-80mm , 28-90mm , 28-105mm , 55-250mm , 70-300mm , 75-300mm , 100-300mm , 50mm 1.4 , 85mm 1.8 with Lens cap Holder and Lens cleaning Kit (Electronics)
It works and covers the lens, but it simply screws into the end of the lens or filter on the end of the lens. Maybe I should have read more, but I am really not worried about it for the price. I will keep it on hand in case of emergency, but I will not leave it on my lens like I do with my other lens covers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gets in the way, December 27, 2010

This review is from: A&R BRAND Professional 58mm Digital Tulip Flower Lens Hood For canon 18-55mm , 28-80mm , 28-90mm , 28-105mm , 55-250mm , 70-300mm , 75-300mm , 100-300mm , 50mm 1.4 , 85mm 1.8 with Lens cap Holder and Lens cleaning Kit (Electronics)
I tried out this hood because it was cheap to see if I would like this design. The "tulip" design is not useful. It adds an element to think about when focusing the camera, because now the hood gets in the way of the shot as you turn the lens. Yes, you can turn the hood to not appear in the photograph, but it is an unnecessary adjustment. I will stick with a straight hood.

Threads do not fit the Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II. It would take too much to notify and return. Maybe somebody will read this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconvenient overall, April 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A&R BRAND Professional 58mm Digital Tulip Flower Lens Hood For canon 18-55mm , 28-80mm , 28-90mm , 28-105mm , 55-250mm , 70-300mm , 75-300mm , 100-300mm , 50mm 1.4 , 85mm 1.8 with Lens cap Holder and Lens cleaning Kit (Electronics)
It screws where normally a filter will go so you can't use them together, also you can't use your lens cap while having this hood on. On my T2i 18-55mm lens if you shoot 18mm that hood gets well into the picture. Keep in mind that with this Hood comes a lens cap holder string and lens cleaning kit. So it really makes no sense to send it back. So if I were me I'd pass on this one.
