Vello EW-73B overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello EW-73B Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and STM 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-73B reviews

    EW-73B Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 232.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to put on, cannot invert. This hood is rather hard and tricky to put on - it does not fall into its natural place from which it needs to get twisted, one has to press on it and apply notable torque to get it on track, which is not good for the lens - can break the lens. Once twisted and clicked, it is pretty snug and sits well, but to get it sliding into the right position is unpleasantly unnatural. I was also surprised to find that it cannot be put on the lens in flipped/inverted position for storing or carrying - very surprising, and awkward, it does not really take much to produce invertable hood, I have another lens with Sigma hood that is invertable and convenient.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value! Not making sure that both clips on my old lens hood were securely clamped to the threads was a lucky break for me. The hood fell off the lens and landed on a concrete driveway damaging the spring clip on one side and ending the old hood's usefulness. This hood is a vast improvement. First of all, just line up the red dots on the hood and the lens and twist and the hood is SECURELY mounted on the lens. The hood can be reverse-mounted for sorage on the lens. As expected with a dedicated lens, it worked flawlessly with the 18-135 Canon zoom on my 60D. Also, vignetting was totally eliminated. Work in bright sunlight, the past two days has been much more enjoyable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just say NO! Most people have figured out that Canon doesn't include lens hoods with their EF-S line of lenses. Shame on them! This product offers the perfect reason to just say no to Canon's inflated price for lense hoods. The Pearstone version is made well, fits well with just the right amount of tension to not rattle or move when mounted, but easily removed and replaced as needed for space in the bag. Save your money to spend on better filters! or lighting, or whatever. This lense hood works great for me and saved me a little chunk of cash. SWEET!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with this lens hood! I added this lens hood with my purchase of a Canon 60D with 18-135mm kit lens and have experienced no problems. Always great when heading outside on a shoot and it's red dot allows you to easily align and attach it on your lens. You just can't go wrong, so if it's compatible with your lens I would highly recommend this accessory.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big mistake Pro - Looked nice. Con - I am an international customer on TDY in Korea.Could not remove it from camera lens as it was defective.Vello customer service refused to provide written help in removing it, but still wanted it back so they could evaluate it and determine if it was defective. Naturally they wanted me to ship back at my expense, plus return to me of replacement would also be at my expense. Shipping expense was twice what I paid for the item.The only way to remove it was by cutting it off. Naturally after cutting it off it would be out of warranty after-service. Item is now in trash can.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit Very good and snug OEM-type fit for Canon 15-135mm STM Lens. The hood does not protrude long enough so it allows the SECKL 'Cap Keeper Lens Cap Holder' to still reach around when the hood is deployed. I also reccomend using the BOPLC67 'CS67 67mm Pro Snap-On Lens Cap' as the original OEM canon cap does not lend itself to be removed since the spring tabs are located near the rim--the CS67, the spring finger tabs are near the center.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Protection for lens My camera goes everywhere and this was added on the 18-135 lens along with a lens filter for protection from the elements.
