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.

Not good when using flash

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:

    Great alternative to the OEM lens hood. Fits perfectly on my SX50. It's not very long so I don't know how much it actually helps. I'm only using it so I don't have to keep the lens cap on when putting my camera in my bag.

        I used on a SX50 HS. The hood snaps on to the lens
        by lining up the detents and rotating. Also the lens retracts very well with the hood on.

          Comments about Vello LH-DC60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

          This lens shade is every bit as good as the OEM Canon shade for much less $$. Fits perfectly. As always, B&H is my first stop when buying products such as this, always a great experience.

            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.

                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.

                  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.

                        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.
