The Vello EW-60CT Tulip Lens Hood is designed for use with Canon's EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, II, III, IV, V, 18-55mm, IS, IS II & 28-90mm lenses. Please click here for a complete compatibility list, and to see a list of available lens hood options.
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. 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. The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage with the minimum amount of weight and hood area.
Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.
