Product Highlights
  • Fit Lenses with 58mm Filter Thread
  • Designed for Internal Focus Lenses
  • For Lens Above 20mm (Full Frame Cameras)
  • For Lens Above 15mm (APS-C Size Cameras)
  • Reversible for Compact Storage on Lens
  • Accepts Lens Caps
  • Petal Shape Maximizes Hood Coverage
  • Minimum Weight & Hood Area
  • Extra Protection for Accidental Impact

The Vello 58mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II) is designed to fit lenses with a 58mm filter thread. The hood is designed for use with internal focus type zoom lenses. When used with "full frame" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 20mm. With "APS-C" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 15mm. With wider lenses, especially on full frame cameras, some slight vignetting might occur.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage with the minimum amount of weight and hood area. In addition, the design of this hood allows it to be reversed and stored on the lens, when not in use. It is also designed to accept lens caps. 

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens, by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

      Decent bargain lens hood

        Comments about Vello 58mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II):

        The snap on feature is a pair of squeeze tabs that work much like your lens cap. A little awkward, and it seems not very stable. I can use it with a filter but can't seem to figure out how to put the lens cap over it, the dimensions just don't work right. I had hoped for a slightly different snap-on functionality but it will do the trick for now. It hasn't popped off and seems to add protection to the lens.

        Comments about Vello 58mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II):

        I unfortunately lost the lens hood that came with my Fujifilm XC 16-50mm lens. This is a good replacement with no vignetting. My only complaint is that it can be a bit difficult to snap on and can't be turned backwards for storage, so you end up with a lens hood floating around in your bag or pocket. Seems well made and has held up after a few light uses.

          Comments about Vello 58mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II):

          Great lens hood but I should've done more research into the fact that it doesn't work well on kit lenses or other lenses that turn when they focus. Also doesn't work well with a lens cap attached.

              Difficult to sometimes get it onto the lens but once on it is fine. Also very difficult to reverse on the lens.

                Fits my 28mm Canon lens (new IS version) perfectly. I cannot say that I need the Canon version of this, Vello does the job very well.

                  Works just it was advertised. A lot more cost affective then the equivalent fron Canon.
