    Works Just As Well as the Canon Model

    I use this product with the Canon 55-250mm IS lens, and I have never had a problem with the hood. There is no reason to shell out more money for the same piece of plastic with the Canon name printed on it. If you're looking for a nice hood and don't care about advertising the Canon name on every single piece of your gear, save a few bucks and buy this model.

    Help along with the filters. Just wish it wouldn't look so plain. No style to it

            Comments about Vello ET-60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

            Works great, easy to install and remove from lens and is a lot cheaper than the Canon brand hood. Only problem I have with it is if using a lens filter the hood doesn't fit on the lens, but is that a lens hood problem or the filter or lens it self.

              Comments about Vello ET-60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

              Attaches securely, sturdy, perfect fit and doesn't vignette. If I was a brand-concious kind of guy, I'd cover "Vello" with a Canon logo. As with the Canon, the hood has to be removed to get to the lens cap, but a pinch-cap will solve that.

                      This is a good lens hood for a 55-250. It is to replace an old one, but it works great. Storage is easy as well.

                      Inexpensive enough, and easy to replace.

                        I use this on my Canon 75-300mm lens. Lens hoods are a MUST for any lens. The Vello lens hood gets the job done at a fraction of the cost for a Canon branded lens hood. One of the resons I bought this hood was because it fastens exactly the same way as the Canon lens hood, and when storing the camera in your bag this lens hood will flip around and go on backwards so you can leave your long lens on the camera and store it. If you want a great lens hood at a great price, look no further.

                                  This lends hood is made of a reasonably thick plastic material, great for clumsy people like me who drop it in the ground. A metal hood would, of course, bend.

                                    Used when taking photos on a trip to a lake resort, obvious difference in pictures with and without the hood. Well worth the price.

                                          Not much to say, it's a lens hood that works for my 75-300mm lens, fast an convenient shipping as always from B&H

                                                  Ordered from NY store and received 4 days later in Sydney Australia. ordered hoods for two lenses and including UPS cost was cheaper than I could purchase just one genuine Canon hood for. Will continue to shop here, have had no delivery problems with any previous orders and product was as expected.

                                                    Have been looking for a nice hood for my 75-300mm canon zoom lens but on a budget, this hood fits the bill. Goes on easy, does a great job preventing glare and also providing some protection. Would highly recommend this hood.
