Vello ET-83C Dedicated Lens Hood $17.95
You Pay: $32.99

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

    Comments about Canon ET-83C Lens Hood:

    I use the lens hood to protect the lens. To enclose the subject that I want to photograph. To keep out unwanted light . The product does a very good job of taking care of these items. The disadvantage is that it falls off a little easily. The slightest jar often will cause it to come off of the lens.

    Comments about Canon ET-83C Lens Hood:

    It is a perfect replacement although I wish Canon would re-engineer it so that it's internal stops would not wear out if you overtighten the hood on the lens too often.

    good size and sturdy but must be careful that it is securely attached. Lost my last one out of a hot air balloon over the Serengetti, I will be attaching a string to my new one. : (

          Comments about Canon ET-83C Lens Hood:

          Living without it? Well no. Recently while on a photo shoot in another city I was doing some inside work that was not conducive to using the lens hood. Later when back home I was not able to find it. The chances of getting it back were nil.[...].Upon receiving the new hood, Murphy's Law kicked in and I found it in the bottom of my lens case!Send it back. No. I decided to keep it as a backup so that I would never be without it again!
