Product Description

Product Description

Compatible with: EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 USM & EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lenses

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 lenses:

  • EF-S 18 to 55mm f3.5-5.6
  • EF 28 to 80mm f3.5-5.6 II
  • EF 28 to 90mm f4-5.6 II USM
  • EF 28 to 90mm f4-5.6 II

Pretty much everybody looking at this hood is thinking about tossing it onto a 18-55mm kit lens. Given how wide this lens goes, this shallow little thing is the best they could do. This hood clips onto the focus ring which spins when the lens is focusing. Given this, a tulip design would be maddening to use.

Honestly, probably doesn't make much of a difference in image quality. I have yet to shoot a picture without a lens hood so I'm no judge of this. That said, there are some good reasons to get it anyway...

1. The hood is what I grab onto whenever I manually focus. This is something other people forget about, but the 18-55 kit lens has a very small ring to try to grip when you manually focus. I mean, it's tiny. Since the hood rotates along with the focus ring, you can just grab the hood instead. When you're behind the viewfinder you're going to be feeling around for the focus ring anyway so having something bigger to lurch for is really handy.

2. When you put the lens down, you can just rest it front down. Because the hood makes a nice little base, you don't have to worry about it rolling away. Don't try this with the camera body attached.

3. It protects the lens from bumping into stuff and scratching. Sure you can get a UV filter, but I don't like leaving a filter on there if I don't have to. I've bumped the hood against things, while if I had done the same thing with the UV filter, then I would have had to either clean the filter or buy a new filter. Theoretically a UV filter can slightly degrade image quality, especially if you're buying one commensurate to the kit lens. Theoretically this hood raises image quality.

4. It makes the camera look cooler.

That said, it's seriously overpriced for what it is. Just call it cheap insurance and get over it. If you're looking at this, you'll probably going to buy it anyway.

The kit lens with XSi is pretty wide angle, so no one should really expect to get a large hood on the lens, but the lens also has a very small manual focus ring, and this can help out by adding a little grip. It doesn't offer a whole lot of protection from accidental dings and stray fingers, but it is better than nothing. As the title of this review sounds, the hood does a better job making the lens looks better than it does reducing lens flare. If you have the 20 dollars, its worth it, I suppose. I never use lenses without a hood.

I giggle whenever I see someone saying "I wanted a tulip style hood for my lens but Canon doesn't make one." Well, of course not! You can't use a tulip style hood on the lenses this hood was designed for- the front of these lenses rotates when they focus, and the long ends of the tulip would end up messing up the picture when you're zoomed wide- this is why this hood is designed the way it is, as any other hood made for a lens that rotates at the end.

That being said, lenses such as the EF-S 18-55mm and EF 28-90mm are simply too wide at the low focal length to be able to use a very big hood (it would interfere with the photo if it were bigger) which is probably Canon made this an optional accessory in the first place (higher end Canon lenses usually come with a hood)

As for function, the EW-60C does an "okay" job. If the light is too far forward of an angle, it will let some flare into the lens (more so than larger hoods would) but it is better than no hood at all. It does a GREAT job of protecting the front element- something I found out the first day I took my camera out with this hood and ended up face down in the dirt when I was tripped up on some sticker vines! (The hood survived as well, testament to the quality of the plastic used!) It also gives you a bigger gripping area when you manually focus the lens- a plus considering the focus ring on these lenses are a bit small.

All in all, it's more of a "nice thing to have" rather than a "must have." It's as good as it can be, adds a few nice things to the lens, in my opinion is better than nothing, and the best you can get for the lenses it's made for. (much better than those horrid screw on "professional tulip style" hoods you get for $4.00- don't waste your money on those!!!

Yes, I have to agree with the previous review. It doesn't seem to make any difference in reducing lens flare from light sources. It doesn't seem to extend far enough to actually do anything. If it was less expensive I wouldn't mind as much, and just chalk it up to extra protection. But that seems to be all it's good for.

The build quality of the Canon EW-60C Lens Hood is simply top-notch. You are paying a premium not only for the Canon name, but for a high quality and impeccably constructed component.

Form
----
The inner side of the hood is specially coated to reduce glare. This coating, called "flock," gives the inner surface a non-reflective matte texture.

The EW-60C is designed specifically for the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (AKA the "kit" lens), the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, the EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 USM, the f/4-5.6 III/II USM, the EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, the EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 III/II, and the EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 IV USM/ V USM lenses. The optical properties of these lenses is taken into account in the design (such as the depth and shape) of the lens hood.

Do not try to fit your lens with hoods designed for lenses with different focal lengths or you might run into a problem with vignetting (a phenomenon where the edges of a picture are darkened). Although there are "cooler" looking lens hoods, such as one with a "petal" design, they will not work properly unless they are designed for your lens.
