A hood is not needed by most people, but it becomes essential when there is a lot of scattered light around, such as in a function where a number of video cameras, flashlights, and such are being used. This hood cuts off such light and increases the clarity of the photograph.

I purchased this lens hood for my Sony DSC-HX300 and the hood is visible in the frame when fully zoomed out. In fact, the hood is visible until you zoom to about x1.3. There is an attached UV filter on my lens and this may be the reason. It would have been nice if the makers of this hood would factor in the extra 2mm that a filter adds to the top of a lens.

It works if you take it on and off a lot don't buy .
The threads do not hold up too good super easy to cross thread even when you turn it backwards until it clicks it still tries to cross thread.
I got it fast and with no problems /////////////

This hood does not work with this camera! It is fine with the telephoto but leaves a dark ring when used in wide angle or normal. Very disappointed as I am leaving for vacation in a few days and don't have time to get one that works.

Protected my lens while hiking through the thorny South African bush and reduced flare from the intense sun. Only down side is that it can sometimes turn slightly and is visible in the corners of the photos.

Nice! No vignetting. (Had a prior one - of a different make - that showed at the image corners when zoomed to extreme wide angle.) Does its job just as promised. Important photographic tool.
