Product Description

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 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

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. :)

Despite many photographers making fun of people that leave their hoods on the lens reversed, I personally like doing that from time to time. That was the main purpose I bought this over the cheaper Photodiox hood. However, the design of this hood makes it unusable.

Please see my pictures to clearly see the problem. You press buttons on opposing sides to retract tabs in order to secure the hood to the threaded lens attachment; but pressing the buttons compresses the hood making it extremely difficult to attach. This makes de/re-taching the hood a very frustrating task. And because the hood is free-floating on the ring, you cannot remove the hood from the lens without first removing the hood from the attachment ring.

This design was so poorly implemented, I'm really surprised it is sold. This will sit in the box on my shelf. I wouldn't accept this if given to me for free. Get the simple Photodiox hood for less money and better design.

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.

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.

The quality isn't the highest and it's not easy to put on / take off. Feels like it's going to break, or at least like the little tabs that hold it onto the ring are about to snap. other than that... it does the job.

I was at first skeptical of the "two piece" hood assembly that was the only Canon branded hood option for my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Standard AutoFocus Lens.

but after receiving it, I quickly appreciated the ability to screw on the adapter and leave it on my lens, while still giving me freedom to place filters on it with no issues. The hood snaps on by pressing in on the two indents and carefully snapping the hood in place.

Your lens cap can also be placed on over your filter with no trouble, and reversing the hood on the lens is no problem. This is the ONLY lens hood that I would recommend for this lens. And I have to give a shout out to Adorama Camera for their fast delivery.

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.
