Vello ES-68 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello ES-68 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

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

    Vello ES-68 reviews

    ES-68 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with my Vello hood Love this Vello hood that I purchased for my 50mm (no vignetting or issues). It's slightly resilient, i.e. not brittle, which I believe saved my lens during a recent drop where the lens landed on the hood at an angle, and the hood hood absorbed/countered the impact - quite a relief after my initial reaction (and word). More on its intended use though, it is slightly difficult to align and twist into place. It has a nice lock, but the threading is slightly tight. Once you learn the ideal starting spot, it's not so bad. It can be reversed on my lens to stow, I can't vouch for others. I would purchase again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Hood Solution Considering how inexpensive the 50mm f1.8 STM is, it really needs a less expensive hood. The Vello hood fits the bill, as well as the lens. ;) It is just like current Canon hoods, using a button release. It fits perfectly and does not vignette. It doesn't have the fuzzy coating inside, but to me that's a good thing because cat hair seems to stick to the fuzzy coating on my other hoods. One note, which would be true of any hood. I was using an LP-811 bag to store the lens. With the hood on, it no longer fit, so I had to switch to a larger bag. Not a big deal because I had a spare, but worth noting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens hood for the price - minus one problem The quality of this lens hood is comparable to the canon hood at half the price. The button release is very handy and it avoids the hood unlocking itself by accident. One problem I encountered (which may not even be the fault of the hood - more with the lens design) is focusing manually with the hood on. Since the focus ring is so close to the front edge of the lens, it is hard to manually focus with the lens hood obstructing the way. Nevertheless, solid made product by Vello.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hood for the price! It's a great little hood and a lot less expensive than the Canon OEM version. I like it a lot and am glad I bought this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely would recommend Vello makes great lens hoods. It fit perfectly on my 50mm 1.8. High quality at half the price of the Canon brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I love my lens hood. I was reluctant about purchasing it at first because I’ve read mixed reviews on them, but, I love it. I haven’t taken it off of my lens yet. The unwanted and stray light doesn’t interfere with my camera and it fits snug. I highly recommend this product.
