Vello EW-78D overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello EW-78D Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 USM and EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS 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-78D reviews

    EW-78D Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 96.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only hood for my lens I bought this with my 18-200mm lens to prevent sun flares and to protect my lens. So far, I have no complaints -- it does what I expected it to do and is easy to install. It stores in the reverse position on the lens, something I have noticed other lens hoods can't do (on other websites). One observation: with a lens that is already long, this elongates your lens' shadow even more, so if you're planning to use your built-in flash, know that it will create a long shadow in closer photographs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simple Protection I purchased this as a recomended accessory to my Canon 60D/18-200mm kit. It's cheaper than the Canon brand but, it only goes on one way, cannot be turned around and it makes adjusting circular polarizer and lens cap replacement difficult. I just keep in my bag until needed. You get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serves its purpose beautifully I can't speak about as good as or better than the Canon lens hood for the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, but I can say that this hood serves its purpose. The fit is perfect ( as one would expect), and it easily installs/removes from the lens. For the money, I would recommend using this hood in place of the Canon manufactured hood. Of course, I try to buy Canon accessories as much as possible, but on a budget, the Pearstone lens hood performs beautifully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. It fits exactly like the Canon hood on the EF-S 18-200mm at considerably less cost. Considering it's only purpose is to block light and cardboard torn from the packaging it came in would work equally well, 5 stars for being more elegant than taped cardboard!
    Date published: 2010-09-15
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buy the Canon lens hood instead I bought this for my 18-200 thinking I'd save money. Instead I had to pay to send it back: it won't fit on the lens backwards, which means it can't be stored in most camera bags. And if it's on, you can't use the lens cap, and I always seem to forget which pocket I put that in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good, half the price. Let's face it - a lens hood is, more or less, just a hunk of plastic. This Pearstone model is equivalent to the Canon brand item for half the price. The only noticeable difference is that the Canon seems to have some felt-like lining, and this uses textured matte plastic. While one could probably measure a difference in the reflected light from the inner surface, it's not likely to be of significance for most users.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well I bought this for my wife's Canon's EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. Works very well; not loose or flimsy. Excellent value. I've read reviews about flimsy, ill-fitting 3rd party hoods before, well not this one for this particular lens. Just as good as the Canon hoods on my 24-105mm, 50/1.4 and 85 f/1.8 (granted the hood on the 85 is a different type of attachment-type) B&H was awesome as usual with streamlined order and delivery.
    Date published: 2015-01-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good One Bought it for my new Canon 18-200mm lens. Compared to the price of the hood from Canon this one is quite cheap. The item was shipped next day, and I received it on time via Purolator in Canada. Installation was quite easy. I noticed a slight gap between the hood and the lense but don't think it's a major issue. Build quality is not excellent but again this is a cheaper version.
