Lens hoods extend and shade the end of lens preventing unwanted light straying into the lens. Since the end of the lens is extended, you get the benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact. Each dedicated lens hood was specifically created to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Photographers can easily attach the lens hood on the dedicated bayonet mount, and after usage mount the lens hood on the lens in reverse for a compact storage solution.
Top customer reviews
Differences between the Fotodiox hood and the Canon hood are:
1. The Canon hood is coated with a black matte felt-like material on the inside surface which guarantees that there will not be any light reflection off the hood and into the lens, the Fotodiox hood does NOT have this coating and does reflect light.
2. The Canon hood had a nice tight/secure fit. The Fotodiox hood is slightly loose and wobbles.
Will I keep it? Probably. $5 is a lot cheaper than Canon's $45 price tag.
Not only does this product save 90% off the branded alternative, but it works phenomenally well. It fits snug both in the forward and reverse (storage) position. While I am not 100% convinced that I will use the reverse storage option on this hood (it is an awfully big hood), it has a place in my camera bag where I just take it out and pop it on as needed.
The fit is perfect and this, in my opinion, is an excellent deal from a company that has succeeded in giving me a fabulous product at a competitive price twice in the last two months!
The only drawback with this product has nothing to do with Fotodiox or the product's design (in terms of quality). Its more of a size issue. This hood is BIG. And, given the construction of the lens -- it should be -- to keep out unwanted glare on certain shots.
It could cause you some storage issues in your bag -- but for now, I contend carrying it because its a small price to pay for missing that huge shot when the sun is in an inconvenient position. I would also need it if shooting near the ocean or waterfalls since this hood will do a great job of keeping water droplets from reaching the glass.
So, have fun storing this big piece of plastic, but as I bring the corresponding lens into my normal shooting routine, I have no doubts that I will be using this hood often. Fotodiox has done a great job with both hoods I own. I did a lot of research before purchasing their brand, and I could not be happier!
Also -- shipped on time, arrived well-packaged and in perfect condition.
The other issue is that because this is a generic hood it is much larger than needed. While this doesn't hurt the function of the hood it is just unnecessary that it be this large. You don't want to have a hood than makes it easier to bang your lens on things or one that is harder to store in your bag.
In this case it is worth the extra money to buy the Canon hood. I'm not being a snob, I wanted this to work. BTW- the Fotodiox hood for the regular (non-IS) Canon 70-300 to substitute for the Canon ET-60 hood is great. So if you have that lens in stead of the IS model, you should be fine.
This lens hood does not have the felt-like interior finish of its Canon brand counterpart, but I've never encountered an issue from glare inside the hood.
Others have also complained that the hood has a slight rattle, as it does not fit extremely snug when attached. This is true of mine, as well, however it does not affect the functionality of the item. I don't notice it at all when I'm taking photos, but only when the lens brushes my leg as I'm walking. I don't get the feeling that it's going to "break off" as others have said.
I'm willing to live comfortably with both of these issues considering the Canon hood is extremely overpriced. Though a professional photographer will dish out money without a second thought, a photographer on a budget should consider this purchase first.
The hood fits on in both forward and reverse, for ease of storage.
