    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...Read complete review

    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.

    Effective usage

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

              Wanted a hood for my lens, but didn't want to pay the higher price for the name brand. Was happy that I was able to purchase this one. It fits securely on my lens.

                      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.

                        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.
