    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?

    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
