Most Liked Positive Review


Would buy this product again

Need to remove lens hood when using camera's built-in flash. Otherwise, there's a shadow at the bottom of the picture.


Most Liked Negative Review


Not as good as I thought

I figured being a canon product it would work well, but I found that if you flip it around and try to use the flash it leaves a shadow on the image.

Works well.


from Mass.  -  Semi-Professional

The lens hood works well. I use it on the canon 18-200 IS EF-S lens. When "stored" on the lens, you can still work the zoom.


Just what I needed

I added this lens to my bag and didn't know if I should but the hood...waited and took several photos at events without it and then compared those shots to another lens with a hood and saw a difference that wanted to ensure was going to be I bought the hood...went with Canon as it hard and durable and will last.

Questions about this item:

Isabelle W I  I brought my boyfriend the new EOS Rebel Canon T3i 18-55 can you use this?
RICK D  No, this hood shows to only fit the 18-200 and 28-200 canon lenses. I think the lens hood you want is Canon EW-60C.
Isabelle W I  Thanks Rick
Shopper  does this fit the 72mm diameter lens?
CHARLES N  If the number of the hood is the one recommended by the manufacturer then it will fit. Check with Canon customer service to get the correct number.
Shopper  I need a lens hood for my canon EOS 60D....what do you recomend?
BERNARD R  I have used a Canon EW-78D lens hood on a Canon EF 28-200 USM lens... Works well... But, remember to always remove it --- in doors --- while using flash... Otherwise can get some shadowing on the bottom of your photos... The lens hood is easy of take on, and off... B.R.
