The dedicated Vello EW-60C Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, II, III, IV, V, EF 18-55mm, IS, IS II (Except STM Vers.) & EF 28-90mm 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.

Note: Not compatible with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM version

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 was in the market for a lens hood for some time and I finally settled on Pearstone's. The price was great and functionally I saw no difference between their's and Canon's much pricier version. Just two days after purchasing, I was shooting in a concrete, underground garage and I walked away from my tripod to adjust the light and the next thing I heard was my camera crashing onto the concrete. My T2i survived with only minor physical damage but judging from the cracks and damage to my lens hood, my lens would not have been so lucky without it...
    Get one. It's a lifesaver.

    I bought this for my 18-55mm lens that goes with my Canon Rebel XS. It does work well at blocking unwanted sunlight. The thing I do not like is that it is hard to put on and take off. I have to take tne lens filter off to get it on and off. I did not have this problem with the ET-60 lens hood. The ET-60 goes on fine with the lens filter on. I am just leaving it on and do not remove it. At present that seems to work fine. I take a lot of photographs. It is more than a hobby. I have taken some senior photos, weddings, sports, etc. I love taking pictures. I would recommend this but I would be sure to tell the individual about the problem.

          I use this lens hood on the Canon EF-S, 18-55mm, IS. It's compact, does what I expected (it shades properly) and costs less than the comparable (identical?) Canon item. I have not noticed any vigneting even at 18mm. The fit is tight so I have no concern of it coming loose.

          Compre este parasol como alternativa al original marca Canon. Si bien cumple su funcion, hay que forzarlo un poco para montarlo y desmontarlo ya que el plastico es un poco grueso, y por lo tanto se fuerza el lente de kit 18-55 mm. Creo no vale la pena comprar este articulo habiendo poca diferencia de precio con el original.

          Comments about Vello EW-60C Dedicated Lens Hood:

          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. It is very small but does its job and as an added bonus gives you a little better grip when adjusting focus.

              Comments about Vello EW-60C Dedicated Lens Hood:

              A bit fiddly to fit on.
              I put it on lens till it began to grip. Then had to hold the lens ring steady with other hand. While giving the hood an extra gentle twist to get it to fit on tight and snug.
              Removed it in same way.
              Put it on again & decided to leave it on as it fitted well with lens filter & Cap attached.
              And small enough to fit in camera bag without the need to remove.
              Have read and fully understand why other reviews say "It keeps falling off" Thus, as with my own fitting procedure only gave it 4 stars.
              But once on with that 'little extra twist' it works very well in shading out extra light.

                    Comments about Vello EW-60C Dedicated Lens Hood:

                    Short enough to leave on to protect the lens all the time, and stays secure enough so that you are sure it won't fall off.

                    You may want to shade the lens further when zoomed in though, since the hood is designed to provide no vignette at 18 mm. This means that that at 50 mm, the hood could extend much further. In this case, I use my hand to help prevent the sun from hitting the lens. The hood design isn't at fault; it has a design similar to Canon's.

                    It works as it should, and seems durable.

                                I just bought this lens hood for my Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Kit Lens, not willing to spend so much on a OEM hood just for a cheap lens.
                                The hood was quite tricky to put on the camera and I had to force it to hook firmly on the lens, but it's ok since this lens has such a tiny focusing ring that now I can focus with the hood that is really very firm on the lens.

                                      Seems to fit a Canon 18-55 mm just fine.

                                          I am new to the DSLR world, but I can tell you that the hood is very solidly made, fits my Rebel T3 like a glove, easy to put on and take off, very secure when on the lens.

                                          Pretty reasonable price. It doesn't look "cool," but it's there to block the sun, not look cool. If you're looking for a cheap lens hood instead of paying a lot of money for an expensive "cool" looking hood, this is a nice dedicated hood. Fits both my Canon 18-55mm IS & 75-300mm.

                                                Price is very good.
                                                Fit is not 100% but wont fall off.
                                                in general, ok

                                                  I am a huge fan of lens hoods, it's true if you have one on your lens and your camera falls and lands on the lens end, you may get lucky and the only damage is to the hood. Sure enough that is what led me to buy this one. when it arrived, I thought it was better than the one I had previously bought that this one was replacing. I was very impressed with it when I received it, it snaps on nicely and looks like it won't fall off like the other one was.

                                                    Decided to purchase even after reading negative comments. This hood fit snug on top of my UV FILTER on top of the lens. The lens cap stays on. I used the hood for indoor shots so far. I am happy with this small hood.
