Canon's LH-DC70 Lens Hood for Canon G1 X is a dedicated lens hood designed for use the Canon G1 X camera. Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens, by extending and shading the end of the lens. A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

    Canon LH-DC70 reviews

    LH-DC70 Lens Hood for Canon G1 X is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from LH-DC70 Lens Hood for Canon G1X by Canon Using the Canon G1-X for several weeks for photojournalism, street photography and travel this camera is always at my side. Let me stress the word 'always'. For the camera to be quickly accessible in any situation I don't use a lens cap. A LENS HOOD is my solution for protection of the lens from impact and scratches. In this regard the Canon LH-DC70 does it's job - it physically protects the lens. Compared to other lens hoods, the twisting lock mechanism, to keep the lens hood on the lens, is inadequate, often loosens and I need to remind myself to often check the lens hood is still there and locked into place. But I have to admit it has not yet been lost.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't Store it on Camera A lens hood is pretty much a lens hood, except this one can't be stored on the camera by putting it on backwards like the hoods on every other lens I've every used. For a compact camera that is usually not carried around in a camera bag full of accessories, this is a real drawback. Canon seems to have real issues with hoods and caps in general - they bind when attaching and removing, etc. I recommend this product only because it's the only show in town.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced and cheaply made Why is this a $30 accessory instead of a standard item included with an expensive camera? Canon got greedy - and it's not even well designed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from save your money Lens hood is poorly designed, its fine when shooting but when you want to reverse it when the camera is not being used, it must be removed as it will not fit over the lens barrel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should come with camera It should come with the camera. It fits well and you can use the lens cover with it on. Protects the lens and help prevent flair.
