AquaTech SoftHood Overview

The Aqua Tech SoftHood, being lightweight and collapsible and very difficult to damage, is a practical alternative to the originally-supplied metal or carbon fiber hoods that you find with the enormous telephoto lenses for DSLR cameras.

This particular model fits 600mm f/4 and 400mm f/2.8 lenses, as well as the larger 800mm f/5.6. It comes with a pair of compression straps to perfectly affix the SoftHood to the outer diameter of your lens barrel no matter the maker. The nylon SoftHood is waterproof and abrasion-resistant.

If you have the Canon 500mm f/4 IS II L USM you need the Large. If you have the Canon 500mm f/4 IS L USM you need the medium.

Does it the Canon 500mm lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
Well, that depends on which Canon 500mm you have. The Canon 500mm f/4 IS L USM uses the ASHS-medium Hood # 1381. The 500mm f/4 IS II L USM uses the ASHL-large Hood # 1380. The 400mm, 600mm and 800mm you asked about all use the ASHL-large Hood.Hope this helps.Jeff
