Product Highlights
  • For Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, SX40 HS & SX30 IS Digital Cameras

The dedicated Vello LH-DC60 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's PowerShot SX50 HS, SX40 HS & SX30 IS Digital Cameras.

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.

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 bought this not knowing if it would fit my Canon SX50 as well as the Canon lens hood made specifically for the camera but about twice the price. Sure enough, it fits great and works just as well as the Canon product.

            Comments about Vello LH-DC60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

            I ordered this item to put on a lens I owned that came without a lens hood. This item was perfect. It fit perfectly appears to be very well designed and constructed. Highly recommended.

            This little lens hood works pretty good. It sometimes interferes with wide angle shots and always causes a shadow when using a flash.

              Comments about Vello LH-DC60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

              I put the lens hood on the camera as soon as I got it. The hood is sturdy, the fit and finish is excellent and I can still get the camera into the case without having to remove it. Another big plus is that it does not interfere with the lens cover so I won't have to fiddle with taking the hood off and putting it back on all the time.

                Locking onto the zoom lens of my Canon SX50 HS, this lens hood, appearing identical to Canon brand, helps prevent flare and provides some impact and scratch protection for the lens. It reverses for compact storage. Lens cap usage is not impeded.

                    Comments about Vello LH-DC60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

                    The product fit perfectly snug. Doesn't feel loose although I put it on and left it since, so I'm not sure if repeatedly removing would cause wear. Its exactly what I was looking for except at almost half the cost of the Oem manufacturer.
