Product Description

Amazon.com

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering by extending and shading the end of the lens, ensuring no problems with vignetting or motor functions. Additionally, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact. Lens hoods match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

This lens hood fits the following Canon lens:

  • EF 50mm f1.8 II

Product Description


One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles. Almost all EF and TS-E lenses have a Canon lens hood engineered specifically for it.

It's well made and durable.
S Mack
The attaching mechanism requires pressing two buttons which is a bit annoying, as most other hoods can just be twisted off.
Zach Johnson
Canon probably gets both pieces manufactured for pennies.

I own this hood and Canon Digital Rebel XT.

I like the hood. It works well limiting stray light as well as protecting the lens.

As you will hear from many experienced photographers (I'm an amateur), they would never shoot pictures without the hood on the lens so why would you?

All hoods are expensive for what they are, a piece of plastic, but they serve a necessary function.

Get the hood if you want the best from your lenses, including this lens the 50mm f1.8 II.

I would give it 5 stars but it is pricey.

I needed a lens hood for my 50mm lens and paying $25 for a hood on a $75 lens might seem ridiculous. However, that might be because the $75 lens is so inexpensive. If the lens was $250 then paying an extra 10% might not seem too bad. I just saw the total cost of the lens and hood for $100 and that's good for a terrific prime lens and its hood.

However, please note: the lens hood is rather shallow (1 star reduction) and it is a screw-on two piece kit (1 star reduction). One piece is the adaptor that screws-on where the filters normally go (UV Filter) in front of the lens and is intended to be a permanent integral part of the lens and the second piece is the hood that snaps on and off this adaptor. The adaptor ring retains the same 52mm rim size so your protective filter can go before or after the adaptor.

(1 Bonus Star) Because $100 is still a bargain for a 50mm, f1.8, super fast, super sharp, super clear, light weight beginner lens and hood kit!

I hope this helps rather than confuse. :)

The adapter screws on to the filter threads, and then the oversized hood snaps (via two plastic squeeze tabs) on to that. Since the lens doesn't zoom there isn't much chance of vinetteing, but it looks a bit akward and because it's so wide I'm not sure how much glare it keeps out.

However, if you (like me) bought this lens for low-light work because of the f-stop, you're also buying this hood for the same reason I did: lens protection (vs lens flare.) Since it's the only one Canon offers currently, it's really your only bet.

I know this has been stated time and time again but here it is again, "this is a lot of money for a piece of plastic." That being said the difference in photographic results makes it worth the investment. Decreased flaring, increased contrast and natural saturation. You probably paid well over a thousand bucks for your camera set-up. In the big picture this is a sound investment. The lens adapter is well made and I'm 90% sure it's some type of metal. The two pieces fit together well and the connecting mechanism is fairly sophisticated. This explains 50% of the price. I bought the canon hood because it is reversible for storage unlike the generic model for this lens. Also unlike the generic model the part that threads into the lens is metal or at least won't strip. The 50mm f/1.8 is a decent portrait, all-around lens and will get plenty of use. This product will decrease the number of shots ruined by flare. Don't expect miracles but this will improve your average shot a small amount.

Hello All,

Lens hoods are pretty much a necessity, but this has to be the mostly poorly made hood I've ever used. Unlike other hoods that screw on, this one requires you to press to opposing clips and then slide the hood one, and release the clips. This leads to problems of alignment, meaning both sides of the clip need to be perfectly aligned in order for the hood to fit right. Although it's a pain and I hate...I don't really have another alternative. Either go w/o a hood, or take this one. Either way, guess I'd rather have a hood on the lense than not having one.

I have one positive thing to say about this hood: It makes the camera look pretty cool and professional. Other than that, this thing is a piece of s**t that broke a month or two after I got it. The clip-on mechanism is poorly designed and hard to use even when it's not broken. Why don't they just make it screw-in? I'm not sure if this is the only option for this lens, I haven't looked yet. You have to use a hood so I might be forced to buy another one, but I would stay away from it if at all possible.
Update 4/24/07: I bought a rubber fold-up hood on eBay, and it's infinitely better than the Canon. It screws solidly into the hood adapter, and folds up out of the way when not in use. I highly recommend getting that instead of this garbage.

I bought this at the same time as my 50mm f1.8 lens. This lens hood is slightly different than the normal ones. As other reviews mention it has an adaptor that screws into the filter threads. It then attaches via two depression buttons on either side of the hood. I was concerned about the experience other reviewers had with the hood and their difficulties getting it on and off. Turns out they just didn't think it through.

Like other reviewers I had issues getting the hood on and off of the adaptor initially, until I realized that I needed to be gentle. If you squeeze too hard it slightly changes the shape of the rim, not in a bad way, that's just how plastic is. This causes it to become very difficult to get off of the adaptor. If you squeeze GENTLY, just enough to depress the buttons, you have a much easier time. In fact, with a few trials it was just about as fast to turn this lens hood around as it was for the hood on my kit lens. It takes a little trial and error, but once you figure it out it's not hard, just don't go squeezing it like crazy.

As I just mentioned, yes you can turn this lens hood around for storage. However, if you do this you can no longer get to the focusing ring. This is slightly annoying if you are trying to catch a shot with your camera straight from your bag. You can still reach the auto-focus switch so unless you need to manual focus right from your bag, you'll be okay. The one or two times this might happen in the lifetime of this hood are not going to change my life, and therefore it doesn't warrant docking a star.

Build quality is great. It fits the lens well. It's durable. It's easy to get on and off, once you stop trying to mash the buttons in. I'd buy another one if mine broke, which is about the highest complement you can pay to an item like this.
