Vello ET-65B overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello ET-65B Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO-IS and f/4-5.6 IS USM lenses. 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 ET-65B reviews

    ET-65B Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 177.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Protect your investment This lens hood let me take decent shots by keeping water and mist off my lens while shooting photos in San Francisco. The only downside is slight picture cropping at higher end of the range because of shadow caused by the length of the hood. (This only happens in strong light and in such conditions you're not likely to need the hood). The easy fix is to remove the lenshood or reduce the zoon amount. Either way, this problem only affected a very small percentage of my shots and I could also detect the problem in the view finder before taking the shot. It reverse fits on the lens for easy storage; a very useful feature that I will depend on before I get a larger camera bag!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why pay more?! I've become a loyal Canon fan, and have a 40D and, so far, two Canon lenses. But, I can fathom no reason why some of the accessories I get shouldn't be from a third-party. I'm finding that many of the third-party products are nearly identical, but are missing the Canon brand name stamped on the side. This product is a great example of how to save a little money, and not suffer loss of quality. This hood fits my Canon 70-300mm f4.0-5.6 IS USM lens perfectly, and, as far as I can tell, performs as well as the Canon equivalent, which is also plastic. And, it can reverse-mount on the lens for storage. This is a good deal...save $30 over the cost of the Canon, and just get it! :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a product that I use on all my lens and I tried the Vello Lens Hood for the first time and I can see no defference in the Vello and the Canon except the price. They both work great but Cann may be a bit heaver in weight and price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens hood for Canon lens I had bought a used Canon 70-300mm lens and needed a lens hood. My camera store did not have one so I ordered it from B&H, like most of the hoods I have. As usual it arrived in short time and fits the lens like it should.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Function Counts As an equestrian and outdoor adventure photojournalist, I travel a lot and spend long days in places that do not agree well with delicate or sensitive technology. My favorite thing about this hood is its rigidity, ensuring that if I accidentally bump my lens into a tree or another unfriendly object, the lens is protected. Easy to put on and fits on well backwards over the body of the lens for travel. Does an excellent job of blocking unwanted sunlight from entering the lens. Very pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well - good price Fits my 70-300IS USM well either extended or pointing towards the camera to save room n my backpack. Lens cap is reachable, but is a little awkward until you get used to it. Price was a major consideration.
