Hi, I'm a newbie to photography but am really interested in it. Like the way i hooked up with golf! Just that I believe it is going to be more costly than golf! Hahaha...
I know I shouldn't get myself into all the accessories out there yet.... But I just wanted to get the things right..
I got confused about the conical and petal shaped lens hood. I read somewhere that the conical suits better for fix apeture prime lens / wide angle lens while the petal is better for zooms lens. But on other articles, they mentioned the other way round. Wide angle --> petal and zoom --> conical. Which is which now? The latter also make sense because my original lens came with conical lens hood too. What is the range of the lens are considered wide angle?
Basically, I'm using Nikon 18-55mm/f3.5-5.6 and 55-200mm/f4-6.3. They come with original conical HB-45 and HB-37. Do I need to change to petal type instead? How about those attached-on wide angle lens (X0.45)?
Hope the experts here can help me out.. Thanks in adv.
