Vello EW-63II overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello EW-63II Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 28mm f/1.8 USM, EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM and II 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 "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. 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 EW-63II reviews

    EW-63II Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from the bread and butter of accessories Given that the lens makes the photograph, I found it logical that a lens accessory could boost a moderately good lens to take great pictures. This lens hood really helps me to make the most of what the 28mm lens has to offer, which is it's aperture range. I don't shoot in studios, so I work with the light at hand in real settings. This lens hood helps me to have more control over how I use light that I otherwise can't control. I wouldn't say that I always shoot with the lens hood on, but having it with me as an option when negotiating with tricky lighting situations adds one more level of control to my photographs. This is important to me given that I prefer to be more hands on in the field rather than relying on post-shooting computer editing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for i have a tiffen uv protector on my lens to keep it from scratching and it makes putting this lens hood on extremely difficult. for some reason when i have to protector on, the lens hood almost doesnt fit (it is too tight) this makes screwing it on difficult (and scary! i dont want to turn it too tight and break the lens) i havent used the canon equivalent so i cannot say whether or not that one has a better fit. especially since i put on a glass protector (which probably has a lot to do with why its a tight fit)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost as good as the Canon version! This fits on my 28mm f/1.8 just as securely as my Canon hoods fit my other lenses. The only knock on this hood is the inside isn't flocked with black fabric like the Canon hoods. It is textured though but it looks like some light could still bounce around in the hood causing some flare although I haven't noticed it in any of my pictures yet. I wouldn't hesistate to buy another Vello hood if I see the OEM Canon hoods are not in stock.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit Bought this for a Canon 28mm/1.8 lens. The hood is very hard to put on, and doesn't fit on all the way, so it's slight twisted off-horizontal. Not enough to show up in photos, but it is annoying. I feel like it's going to break every time I put it on or take it off, because the plastic is so thing and it takes so much effort to turn. Do not bother buying this, if you're getting it for the Canon 28/1.8 lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on 28mm f/1.8 I saw some reviews that said this hood didn't fit well, but mine fits perfectly on my Canon 28mm f/1.8 and feels solid. It's the only non-Canon hood I own, and I would definitely say to save some money and get this instead of the Canon brand version. It lacks the felt-coated inside of the Canon hood, it is just flat black paint. But so far I have had no issues with relectivity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the bill for me Proper shape, attaches correctly, shades the sun, cheape than OEM equivalent. So... works for me. I don't need luxury equipment to cast a shadow on my front element :-) This model seems to operate properly and has a correct tulip shape that sounds right. I think it's a tad tight, but this isn't too bad. Of course, you don't get velvet inside at this price, as you do in Canon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello Hood I bought this for my 28mm prime lens. Since it is a dedicated hood, it fits my lens perfectly. I had no trouble instaling and removing the hood. I've actually never tried the Canon one so I don't know how well this Vello hood does against it. But I'm very happy with my purchase. It does what it is supposed to do without the Canon price tag. Highly recommended!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not So Much Considering the cost difference compared to a Canon lens shade, I gave this a try. Maybe because there's a filter on the lens, this hood doesn't connect securely. It's kind of loose and wobbly. I'm going to work on seeing if I can make it connect more securely. If it doesn't, then I wasted my money; if it does, then I saved a nice amount.
