Product Highlights
  • For Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM, EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM & II Lenses

The dedicated Vello EW-63II Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 28mm f/1.8 USM, EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM & 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 "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. 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.

    Given that the lens makes the photograph, I found it logical that a lens accessory could boost a moderately good lens to take great pictures. This lens hood really helps me to make the most of what the 28mm lens has to offer, which is it's aperture range. I don't shoot in studios, so I work with the light at hand in real settings. This lens hood helps me to have more control over how I use light that I otherwise can't control. I wouldn't say that I always shoot with the lens hood on, but having it with me as an option when negotiating with tricky lighting situations adds one more level of control to my photographs. This is important to me given that I prefer to be more hands on in the field rather than relying on post-shooting computer editing.

    Bought this for a Canon 28mm/1.8 lens. The hood is very hard to put on, and doesn't fit on all the way, so it's slight twisted off-horizontal. Not enough to show up in photos, but it is annoying. I feel like it's going to break every time I put it on or take it off, because the plastic is so thing and it takes so much effort to turn.

    Do not bother buying this, if you're getting it for the Canon 28/1.8 lens.

    Comments about Vello EW-63II Dedicated Lens Hood:

    Considering the cost difference compared to a Canon lens shade, I gave this a try. Maybe because there's a filter on the lens, this hood doesn't connect securely. It's kind of loose and wobbly. I'm going to work on seeing if I can make it connect more securely. If it doesn't, then I wasted my money; if it does, then I saved a nice amount.

      It seems Canon Is too greedy to include a lens hood with the Purchase of a 500 dollar lens, so this Vello is a Good Choice.

        Proper shape, attaches correctly, shades the sun, cheape than OEM equivalent. So... works for me. I don't need luxury equipment to cast a shadow on my front element :-) This model seems to operate properly and has a correct tulip shape that sounds right. I think it's a tad tight, but this isn't too bad. Of course, you don't get velvet inside at this price, as you do in Canon.

                      This hood works very well! Also makes the lens look more expensive. The only thing is, it's a very snug fit. This makes it more difficult to remove and flip to fit my lens in a carrying case. Other than that it is an awesome product for the price!

                          Not as sturdy as the Canon brand hood, but that goes without saying since it is half the cost, approximately. Fits well and works fine.

                            This fits on my 28mm f/1.8 just as securely as my Canon hoods fit my other lenses. The only knock on this hood is the inside isn't flocked with black fabric like the Canon hoods. It is textured though but it looks like some light could still bounce around in the hood causing some flare although I haven't noticed it in any of my pictures yet. I wouldn't hesistate to buy another Vello hood if I see the OEM Canon hoods are not in stock.

                              I have a lot more confidence in this than the rubber lens hood on my 50, and unlike the giant hood for my 28-135, I can leave this one on when I put the lens back in my back, or when I'm leaving the lens on the camera and putting the camera back in the bag. It' a must for your 28 1.8!

                                      I saw some reviews that said this hood didn't fit well, but mine fits perfectly on my Canon 28mm f/1.8 and feels solid. It's the only non-Canon hood I own, and I would definitely say to save some money and get this instead of the Canon brand version.

                                      It lacks the felt-coated inside of the Canon hood, it is just flat black paint. But so far I have had no issues with relectivity.

                                                  I got the lens hood to help protect my lens. I love it and it's not too big or bulky. I also like that it can be flipped around for storage or if I don't want to use it.

                                                      This dedicated lens hood does exactly what it should. I mainly use it for protection, but it is also nice if I am in a situation where I am trying to block out haze or lens flare (which I actually tend to love). It fits perfectly on my 28mm f/1.8. Very easy to use.
