    Default Lens Hood

    Hi, I'm quite new into photography. I've checked quite a few places including cathay but i cannot seem to get the ES-62 canon lens hood for my 50mm f1.8. Any idea where I can get one?

    have you tried The Camera Workshop or Orient Foto?
    both have lots of accessories in their stores pretty sure the latter has one for sale.

    what do u need a lens hood for? does your 50mm flare very badly?

    Yup, I noticed it tends to flare as compared to my kit lens set at 50mm when the aperture are opened wider, and this is the very reason why I bought this lens.. to use wide open aperture for background blur, which is almost impossible with the kit lens maximum ap at f5.6 @ around 50mm

    Why don't you make yourself a lens hood? Free templates are available for downloading from www.lenshoods.co.uk for most of the common lenses. You can actually make the hood out of reasonably stiff but pliable material and have it painted black and it is just as good.

    Hey man I bought a canon 50ML myself and its beyond me why Canon do not supply a lens hood when u buy their lenses. I refuse to go and spend 40-50 Aussie dollars for a genuine one so i bought a rubber one that screws onto your lens thread.
    One qtr of the price.
