What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

The dedicated Vello ES-62 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Moreover, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. And since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens.
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light.
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements.

    Cheap lens hood for a cheap lens, but it more then does the job. It has a finicky attachment system that requires a little more patience to seat then a bayonet hood, but once its on it more then does the trick. Buy this lens hood over the name brand model and apply the savings to your next great lens or piece of gear.

    Horrible Quality!!!

    This brand was a fair bit cheaper than the Canon version, but it's not worth the savings.

    This brand was a fair bit cheaper than the Canon version, but it's not worth the savings.

    Like the Canon version for this lens (50mm 1.8) there are two pieces - the hood and a mount ring that screws on like a filter. First problem is the hood doesn't even fit on its own mount ring!! I had to sand/carve out the inner diameter of the hood so it would fit. Second, the springs for the mount clips/teeth were popping out so it wont go on.

    Buy the real deal - I own other Canon hoods and they are MUCH better quality for a few more bucks.

      Purchased this lens hood recently and have used it several times. Very satisfied with it so far. Would definitely recommend this product to others especially since it costs significantly less than the same item made by Canon.

            It's a decent protection for your lens that has a 52mm filter thread. It's very cheap compared to the canon version.

            I haven't used this lens hood that much since I'm mainly indoors with my 50mm, but it does the job. Unfortunately this lens hood come with 2 parts, the second part is use as an adaptor from the lens to the lens hood. Not sure why they would make a lens hood for a specific lens and then make it have an adaptor.

                  Good basic hood at a reasonable price. I wish you could invert it on the lens for storage like the standard EF lens hoods. However, on a 50mm, the lens is so short, I just leave it on.

                              This hood fits the nifty 50 very nicely and seems to made of good material. Since the nifty 50 can shoot in lower light this is a helpful accessory that is worth considering. It fit my lens and I am pleased with the performance of the hood. I was concerned that it would not fit well and that the materials of the hood would not be sturdy. Upon installation I found that my concerns were not warranted. This is a good lens hood that should provide years of service.

                                I ordered this to go along with my 50mm 1.8, and I couldnt be happier. This hood provides just enough glare reflection.

                                My only complaint is on really bright days or shooting into the sun too much, I have to put my hand up like I would if I needed a hat on.

                                  Helps keep out unwanted light to improve light in the shot. Gets the job done, but is a weaker build plastic, and could've been a flower pedal with inner edges, but for the price you pay it is perfect.

                                      This hood is well worth the money and snaps onto the Canon 50mm 1.8 firmly. The only thing I wish it would be reversible.

                                      It seems a little flimsy, but it's not like I paid much for it anyway. Great for the price.

                                        I was in search of a fairly inexpensive hood to attach to my 50mm 1.8 and this is absolutely perfect! thank you!
