Technical Details


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.

Lens hoods like this are useful for a number of reasons...

1)Some degree of Protection in case you drop the lens/camera- the idea is that the hard plastic will absorb the impact and either get damaged or pop off the lens, therefore the glass of the lens and the lens body won't be affected.

2)Blocks stray light from getting into the image-If you are shooting in strong light this will limit the light that enters the lens to only what you are shooting at (there is actually felt inside the lip of the hood to absorb additional light). This will prevent lens flare or spots on the image.

3)Allows you to shoot against glass/other surfaces- This is particularly useful if you are shooting in an aquarium or a museum and want to avoid the reflection of existing light on the light. With the hood you can press against the glass, eliminating stray light.

This particular lens hood is very well made, with felt on the inside and perfect fit for the 50 f/1.4 lens. Because the lens is prime (fixed) it is a regular cylinder shape and does not extend that far past the lens (maybe an inch and a half).

I got this as much for safety as anything. If I should drop my lens, a solid lens hood will help. Plastic construction will absorb some of the impact without transmitting all of it, as a metal hood would. Hopefully it will eliminate occurances of flair, although with the Canon 50mm f1.4 lens, that's not a big issue to begin with. It also can keep dust and debris off the lens surface if you're shooting in a less-than-ideal environment.

It twists on and off the lens easily. When it's on, it's very snug and secure. Kind of pricy for a piece of plastic, but Canon's in business to make money.

The lens hood is exactly as described and works well. It's a 5 out of 5 for functionality. It protects my lens and also reduces incident light. It does exactly what a piece of plastic around my lens should.

That said, I also have to rate products considering what the price should be. Was it complicated to make? Are the materials expensive? For something that cost a couple dollars to make, I don't think it should be selling for (the low low price of) fifteen times that. So, Canon gets a 0 out of 5 stars for that. So, I rate this a 2.5 stars out of 5 overall. If I had to do it over, I'd probably go to an auction site and buy a generic brand hood for 1/3 of the price.

update: i recently bought a generic hood for my canon 10-22mm and it feels as good as the canon hoods (less than 1/3rd the cost). i'll be buying generic from now on. enough with the canon hood price gouging.

I opted for the more expensive canon hood for my beloved 50mm lens because it has the inner lining of black felt which should potentially reduce light reflection from the otherwise glossy plastic inner surface. But the main reason is because I am vain and superficial and must have the canon brand name on any accessory I purchase.

The hood has done its job in eliminating peripheral glare. It does not, though, lock snugly in place... with only a slight twisting pressure the hood will unlock from the lens and is then loose. This is potentially a major annoyance, but perhaps I got a bad bottle cap...err I mean lens hood. There is also a sliver of space between the base of the hood and where it twist-locks with the lens; this is likely only an aesthetic concern, though not expected from a brand name lens hood.

Finally, it's a minor challenge to fit the lens cap onto the camera with the hood in place... and I worry about going in at a bad angle and scratching my lens. Maybe canon will make a lens hood cap accessory with a nice 'canon' logo that I can pay twenty bucks for... or maybe it should have just been included with the hood.

I love the Canon 50 mm f/1.4 Lens. It performs wonderfully and lives on my camera much of the time.

Reasons to buy any hood:
1. Protects the glass from your oily fingers when you reach for the camera. (I prefer not to use a UV filter - ghosting/degradation/etc)
2. Sacrifices itself rather than the front element if you drop the lens
3. Prevents lens flare (disclaimer: hasn't been an issue for me)

Reasons to buy THIS hood:
1. Black Matte interior on the inside of the hood that Canon applies is not found on 3rd party hoods
2. Fits lens appropriately, can be installed forward or backward
3. Holds value when combined with this exceptionally popular lens

A lot of people question spending so much on a hood, when there are third party options out there for a fraction of the price. Obviously, if you want to save every penny, this is not for you. This is, however, a much higher quality hood than those third party ones. It is made out of a higher quality plastic, has flocking inside to deaden oblique light and generally fits better than third party hoods.

Also, since you're buying this if you have the 50mm 1.4, it is a good idea to store the lens with the hood reversed, as it protects the auto-focus mechanism, which is very fragile on this particular lens.

Besides the unreasonable price for all Canon hoods, this one looks great and performs as advertised. It has a black felt interior lining and a firm twist on installation. Besides cutting down on stray lighting, it most importantly protects my lens from getting damage. The lens is heavy enough to make my camera lean forward when sitting down, and the hood provides a convenient resting spot instead of touching the lens.
