    Huh...??? No lens hood is better than the other.Either you get the default "brand" of your camera system or you go for the relevant 3rd party lens hood.Take your pick.

    Lens hoods are specific to lenses and their focal length. So first thing is: which specific lens? Then you can search for original one from the lens maker, alternative hoods from the maker (yes, some hoods fit more than one lens) or 3rd party lens hood. Do test the hoods in the shop to prevent vignetting .. which rules out eBay a bit since you can't test. But if you know exactly what you need .. it could be an option. Looking at your posting, though .. not applicable.

    I'm using 600d kit lens 18-55mm.
    Looking for reversible lens hood. How much is the price range? Where to find those 3rd party accessories, ? Any brand?

    PLease know that Marumi offers very low end filters all the way to mid high end filters. You can find out more here: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/newbi...e-filters.html

    Either get the Canon model (check Canon website for model number and RRP, call the shops for the model and street price) or check the Mass Sales section for 3rd party hoods. Do pay attention to the models, there are also 3rd party hoods that get screwed on the filter thread. These hoods cannot be reversed.
