Canon ES-62 reviews

ES-62 Lens Hood with HD Adapter 62Lens Hood is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handle with extra care. This hood comes in two pieces, a nice one piece metal adapter ring and a more to desire plastic clip on hood. All other Canon hoods are one piece, as far as I've known. This hood is the exception. The assembly as a whole has a good finish and nice tight fit on the lens. However, the tabs that keep the hood attached to the metal ring adapter are prone to breaking IF not handled with care. There is a tendency for the tabs to wedge themselves in the ring due to tight tolerances (which is a good thing) but the material used for the tabs isn't as durable. Extra care while handling should be all that's needed for the tabs not to break off. Aside from that, it's a nice hood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it for the price. This is a great vest that I use when I am doing street photography and am going to be out for the whole day. Using the vest is more conducive to my body and prevents neck and back strain that I was getting from using a backpack...I carry a Speedlight, 2 extra batteries,Battery Grip replacement batteries, 2 bottles of water, and extra lens, and keep a rain poncho and camera cover in the pocket that is on the back of the jacket...I would have given it 5 Stars but the thin lining on the inside of the large front pockets ripped the first week I used it and have had it sewn twice..but overall it does the job quite well for the inexpensive price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from does what it's supposed to?? the adapter ring screws onto the threads on the lens and then the hood attaches by way of four small tabs that fit into a groove around the adapter ring. two 'buttons' that you squeeze retract these little tabs for attaching and removing the hood. I'm not convinced this is the easiest way to do this since most other hoods seem to screw on with a quarter turn on existing lens threads. It's a little too precise/finicky for me but I'm sure it just takes practice. Small enough to store on the lens all the time but I'm in the habit of turning it around when not in use. seems to do what it's supposed to although I haven't taken any photos yet to compare to see if any stray light is blocked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works This product does exactly as it says. It's a hood cover for the Canon 50mm lens. The ONLY thing I dislike about it is the hood itself isn't very sturdy. When you press the buttons on the side to slip it onto the adapter, it squishes the lens hood so it's no longer a perfect circle. Making it a bit difficult to get on. I was scared at first trying to take it on/off thinking I might break it. It's pretty strong in that sense though, because I do give it a good bit of force to get it to go on. Overall, I like it. Seems to keep the stray light from the sides out of the lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have accessory If you have a Canon EF 50mm F1.8 lens you want this lens hood, especially if you're shooting outdoors, or in crowded areas (takes the brunt of impact from people bumping into your lens). The adaptor is made out of metal, and fits perfectly with the 50mm lens. No forcing necessary. The hood itself is made out of plastic. The plastic is fairly thick and seems to be quite sturdy. One gripe is the release mechanism. It is hard to get the hood off and on to the hood adapter, it takes a bit of wiggling to get it right. I only rate it a four star because it is a bit overpriced for a bit of plastic. But considering the price of the EF 50mm lens, together they are a great deal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not The Best, But Necessary. Lens hoods are very useful accessories to have on every lens. Not only do they block out non-image causing light, they protect the lens from bumps, debris, and moisture. This particular lens hood does not have the best design. This is partly due to the design of the lens too. The adapter ring for this hood screws into the threads for filters, and the hood clips onto this adapter. The hood has two buttons, one on either side, which must be pushed in order to retract the locking mechanism to install or detach the hood. It does take some practice to get the hood on and off of the adapter ring quickly. The reason I only gave this 3 stars is because the design could be better. The focusing ring for this lens (50mm f/1.8) is very small, and I wish that the hood could be spun to focus this lens. The hood is shaky on the adapter, but it will not fall off. By shaky, i mean that it wiggles around, and feels loose. The adapter ring is solid, and constructed of metal. Although it is not the best design, it still functions and does the job that it was meant to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't wait to learn how to use this... I'm very new to Serious Photography, though i've taken photos my entire life. Now that I have a great camera (& a husband who buys me awesome accessories for it, such as this hood), I am learning more and doing more serious photography, as opposed to shots of dorky people doing dorky things. Now I take photos of water and flowers and buildings and clouds and wow...I sound like a total geek. But the photos are stunning and having this hood allows me to better control the lighting and my photos. I'll admit that I'm pretty unfamiliar w/these sorts of things, & that I know about hoods only because the people in my new photo group @ work all have them, but I plan to learn & use it properly...some day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ES-62 Lens Hood with HD Adapter I bought the lens hood to sharpen up my pictures by eliminating reflected light. It makes a noticeable difference at a small cost. I wish the hood was made with a more rugged plastic. When putting the hood onto the lens, you must squeeze the sides to retract tabs on the hood. The whole hood bends, making it harder to fit onto the included adapter. Otherwise, a good addition that offers nice protection for your lens.
