The dedicated Vello ET-60 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 USM, II, II USM, III & III USM, EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS & EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lenses.

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.

    I use this product with the Canon 55-250mm IS lens, and I have never had a problem with the hood. There is no reason to shell out more money for the same piece of plastic with the Canon name printed on it. If you're looking for a nice hood and don't care about advertising the Canon name on every single piece of your gear, save a few bucks and buy this model.

      This hood does not fit my lens. I even took the uv filter off and thought that would make the difference but it still not go on. Very happy with the rest of the order.

            Light weight and thin but seems strong enough for most everyday shooting. The cap was easy to install. Reverses for easy storage with lens.

                      Did not fit my Canon EF-S 55-250mm STM lens. The plastic tabs that hold the hood on the lens were too wide. I speculate that this was designed for the prior version of this lens. Luckily it fit my Canon 28-90mm lens perfectly.

                      This lens hood fits great and functions just as the canon one does but for a lot less. Unless your a name brand freak, this is the route to go. Great product all around including durability of material.

                                        Works great, easy to install and remove from lens and is a lot cheaper than the Canon brand hood. Only problem I have with it is if using a lens filter the hood doesn't fit on the lens, but is that a lens hood problem or the filter or lens it self.

                                          Attaches securely, sturdy, perfect fit and doesn't vignette. If I was a brand-concious kind of guy, I'd cover "Vello" with a Canon logo. As with the Canon, the hood has to be removed to get to the lens cap, but a pinch-cap will solve that.
