Product Highlights
  • For Canon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO-IS & f/4-5.6 IS USM Lenses

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.

      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.

          Fits my canon lens perfectly. Nothing negative to say about it. Why pay for the expensive canon hood when you can get the same quality for your money.

                  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.

                        Before this product I would never have considered anything other than a genuine Canon lens hood. I bought it because it was in-stock and I needed it quickly for a pro-sporting event I was covering. When it arrived I could not believe how perfectly and affirmatively it attached and functioned. I was absolutely delighted by how well made it was. I could not have been happier with this product.

                              It's works well with my Canon 70 - 300mm lens. What else can I say besides it does the job right. Can't reverse it though to stay on your lens when not in use.

                                The lens hood is exactly what I expected. My only disappointment is that it is reasonably tough to attach to the lens. It took several tries to seat it properly. Seems to be of good quality.

                                    I was kind of hesitant to purchase an off brand lens hood for my Canon lens. There was a quite significant difference in price between the Canon brand and the Vello brand. I purchased this Vello Lens Hood and am very happy with the quality. It feels great and does not feel flimsy. It screwed right on very smoothly. Even happier that I got a good quality product and saved a good bit of money too! I definitely would recommend this to others!

                                        It is a bit bulky but if you want the lens shaded, it does the job. Very fast couple and uncouple.

                                          I bought this hood for my son's Canon 70-300, and it works very well for 1/2 the price of the Canon version. It fits firmly in both forward and reversed positions, and seems well made. The interior is textured to reduce reflections, but isn't quite as nice as the velveteen finish of some Canon hoods, but it does the job.
