    Ive been looking around at some lense hoods, and no one around here carrys them. Ebay it is.

    I noticed theres a bunch of different designs to these hoods.

    Whats the difference between these three? Pros/cons?

    all the photographers on here and noone's posted anything?

    I'm no expert, but I shoot a bunch and I can tell you from the little I know that it has to do with the lens you are shooting with, which hood is appropriate.

    I have two lenses, my larger tele-photo style lens has a hood similar to the first one, and my smaller, wide angle lens has the middle style of hood that shades the top and bottom but doesnt interfere with the "wideness" (for lack of a better term) of the lens/photo. So I suppose the main thing to consider when choosing a hood is what type of lens it's for.

    Well, it's hard to say what lens each is meant for but the top one is probably for a 50mm, the next maybe something wide and the last, maybe a 35.

    Lens hoods are designed to work with specific lenses and if you're looking for one, you might start your search with the focal length.

    You should get a hood that is specific to your lens, you dont want it to vignette in your photos
