What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

The dedicated Vello ET-65B Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO-IS & f/4-5.6 IS USM 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.

    Out of the box, this is really tight and hard to put on. It actually turned the lens focus, so I wound up zooming to extend the lens in order to keep it from turning. After some use, it loosened up, although I'm concerned it may continue to get more loose until it fits poorly. I have no reason to assume this will happen, I just am afraid it will happen.

    Also, I noticed that this hood has two tabs that engage with the lens that are spring-like, I would imagine this allows the hood to be knocked off the lens without damaging the lens, which is a bonus.

    Aside from it seeming a little expensive for a piece of plastic - it's MUCH more affordable than Canon's own plastic, and I would say of equal quality if not better.

    I only rated this 4 stars (instead of 5) because it's pretty expensive for a plastic cup, and because of how quickly the fitment changed (leading me to fear it getting too loose).

    This lens hood fit my lens well. It isn't a high-end product, but I didn't buy it for a high-end lens. It works fine, and I'll get a lot of use out of it. My only wish is that you could flip it around and attach it backwards for storage. Otherwise, it is exactly what I expected.

              Using it on my Canon EF 70-300 IS USM lens. Attaches simply but firmly except in 'reverse' mode - then it is a little loose.
              Price is less than half the Canon branded hood.

                      I have been taking a lot of outdoor sports photos with my Canon 70-300IS and needed a lens hood. ET-65B has taken away all of the glare from the sun…exactly what I needed.

                                  i am using the lens hood mostly on the beach, it works great for the sun glare keeping the lens clean from the sand since i am out with many dogs who jump up.
                                  easy enough to put on the lens and it holds.

                                    Easy to install, prevents the stray light. Easy storage when it is flipped around.

                                    Fits perfectly. Thank goodness there is an alternative to Canon's greedy ploy to extort more money from its customers.
