Vello EW-60C overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello EW-60CT Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, II, III, IV, V, EF 18-55mm IS, IS II, and EF 28-90mm 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-60C reviews

    EW-60CT Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice hood. But not for Canon 18-55mm IS. This lens hood is nicely made and fit my Canon 18-55mm IS II lens just fine. The problem with this combination is that the front of the 18-55 rotates while focusing, which causes this directional tulip lens hood to no longer be properly oriented with the larger sections at the top and bottom of the lens.I'm not sure why one would recommend this hood for a lens that rotates. I returned it and bought a completely round hood instead, which is what you'll want in this case. Stay away from the tulip hoods if you have an 18-55mm kit lens.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hood Bayonet Rotates? Who designed this thing anyway? I should have looked more closely at the lens and thought about it harder, but the front element on my kit lens rotates, so when the tulip hood is mounted, it rotates too as the lens is focused. Get the round hood instead. This lens hood states on the box that it works for a couple different lenses, but as far as I can tell they all have hood bayonets that rotate too. I am not sure if it was designed to take this into account, but at 15mm and with the focus racked all the way to one end or the other, the hood does create a shadow in the corners of the frame.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, compact lens hood The Vello EW-60CT Tulip Lens Hood fits my Canon EOS 18-55 mm kit lens fine. It is a snug fit, but I feel more confident that it's going to stay put. I had a tulip-shaped hood on my previous bridge camera, and loved the shape. I find this tulip lens hood to be compact, attractive, and more importantly it does what it's supposed to do! The Vello lens hood was a better price than the Canon hood that was recommended for my lens. I'm able to leave it attached to the lens, and it takes up very little extra room in my camera bag. When used in conjuction with a u.v. filter, I feel it also offers my lens more protection from being accidentally bumped. Satisfied with the product, and the price paid.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does its job. I bought this to reduce the glare from the sun as well as to protect my lenses and filters from bumps and such. It does the trick, but isn't easy to get on and off the lens making it difficult to swap out my filters. While it does its job, I am guessing there is a model that might do it better with an easier on/off swap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did i not get one sooner! I recent;y just purchased the EW-60CT Lens Hod for my 18-55mm lens. I stays on that lens no matter what. I used it for everyday shooting and especially when i am outdoors. I have been doing photography for about the last 2 months and i can not believe that i did not get one sooner. My images come out much clearer and the colors stand out a bit bit more. The lens hood feels solid and not flimsy or cheap at all. I will definitely be ordering a few more hoods for my other lenses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lens hood for Canon lens Fits well and provides good lens protection. Allows use of filters and even lens cap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens hood I have a Canon 550 D with a 18 55 lens and this lens hood fits perfectly and works really well. It blocks stray light, and reduces lens flare which is great for outdoor portrait and action photography. The only problem I have with it is that it is very snug, which is a good thing but it also is hard to remove and attach and scratches up the threading just a little bit. Otherwise this is a great lens hood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! After talking with a sales representative at B&H who helped me to select the correct lens hood to fit my lens, it arrived just days after my order was placed. The lens fits perfectly and fits snugly into my case. I can still even put my lens cap on with the hood in place.
