Product Highlights
  • For Canon EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, II, III, IV, V, EF 18-55mm IS, IS II & EF 28-90mm Lenses

The Vello EW-60CT Dedicated Tulip 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 & 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 "petal" or "tulip" 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.

    The Vello EW-60CT Tulip Lens Hood fits my Canon EOS 18-55 mm kit lens fine. It is a snug fit, but I feel more confident that it's going to stay put. I had a tulip-shaped hood on my previous bridge camera, and loved the shape. I find this tulip lens hood to be compact, attractive, and more importantly it does what it's supposed to do! The Vello lens hood was a better price than the Canon hood that was recommended for my lens. I'm able to leave it attached to the lens, and it takes up very little extra room in my camera bag. When used in conjuction with a u.v. filter, I feel it also offers my lens more protection from being accidentally bumped. Satisfied with the product, and the price paid.

    This lens hood is nicely made and fit my Canon 18-55mm IS II lens just fine. The problem with this combination is that the front of the 18-55 rotates while focusing, which causes this directional "tulip" lens hood to no longer be properly oriented with the larger sections at the top and bottom of the lens.I'm not sure why one would recommend this hood for a lens that rotates. I returned it and bought a completely round hood instead, which is what you'll want in this case. Stay away from the tulip hoods if you have an 18-55mm kit lens.

    Great lens hood

    By Hayes

    from California

    Comments about Vello EW-60CT Dedicated Tulip Lens Hood:

    I have a Canon 550 D with a 18 55 lens and this lens hood fits perfectly and works really well. It blocks stray light, and reduces lens flare which is great for outdoor portrait and action photography. The only problem I have with it is that it is very snug, which is a good thing but it also is hard to remove and attach and scratches up the threading just a little bit. Otherwise this is a great lens hood.

                      It fits well, looks nice and is built well. Like some other reviewers say, when you zoom in or out the hood turns with the lense and doesnt keep the larger petal from block the sun from the top (which I and everyone else has found to be a pretty bad design flaw).

                                Who designed this thing anyway? I should have looked more closely at the lens and thought about it harder, but the front element on my kit lens rotates, so when the tulip hood is mounted, it rotates too as the lens is focused. Get the round hood instead. This lens hood states on the box that it works for a couple different lenses, but as far as I can tell they all have hood bayonets that rotate too. I am not sure if it was designed to take this into account, but at 15mm and with the focus racked all the way to one end or the other, the hood does create a shadow in the corners of the frame.

                                  This lens hood is nicely made and fit my Canon 18-55mm IS II lens just fine. The problem with this combination is that the front of the 18-55 rotates while focusing, which causes this directional "tulip" lens hood to no longer be properly oriented with the larger sections at the top and bottom of the lens.I'm not sure why one would recommend this hood for a lens that rotates. I returned it and bought a completely round hood instead, which is what you'll want in this case. Stay away from the tulip hoods if you have an 18-55mm kit lens.

                                    One of my destinations to New York City was to visit B&H; The Tulip among other things purchased was a great buy and a great asset to my camera gear. What a difference it makes when you achieve that perfect shot.

                                      i use it constantly! never taken it off.
                                      its sturdy, and i have already saved my lens's life with it being on.

                                      nothing negative about this lens hood.

                                        I bought this to reduce the glare from the sun as well as to protect my lenses and filters from bumps and such. It does the trick, but isn't easy to get on and off the lens making it difficult to swap out my filters. While it does its job, I am guessing there is a model that might do it better with an easier on/off swap.
