    Very simple. Just rotate the whole camera body.

    I reverse my lens hood so I could store it in my bag and reattach it when I am there. However, I may forget at times.

    I reverse the lens hood for storage and I tend to be lazy putting it on if I am just doing a snapshot...since a second later it'll be back into the camera bag

    This one cute. Haha!

    How you guys deal with all the filters with a lens hood @@.
    The difficulty of changing the CPL is.. enough. LOL. Can't imagine add in ND and all.

    Really, I would like to see lens hood comparison to support the claim of increased contrast (not being obnoxious, im genuinely curious!)...

    and i still see people with lens hood shoot into the sun or at bright spots of light.
    As for stray lights, I'd be blocking with my hand...so in due season if can be convinced i'll get lens hoods...haha! Maybe when i go for outings and get BBB poisoned. Haha

    Back to basic - what is the purpose of the Hood? An extract from here says "A lens hood cuts off stray light or flares which will adversely affect the photos you are taking. By reducing flares, the lens hood improves the image quality of the photos".

    Hence to say if there are conditions that the stray light or cause to flare are non-existence you do not need the hood. So for me the hood stayed reversed most of the time and I only put it on when I need to use it like <10% of time. One thing I hate most is it gets in the way when I'm using my pop-up flash
    Photography? It's all in your mind...

    Yeah hood with pop-up flash usualy crates a upsidedown U shape vignetting at the bottom of the picture ... especially with a wideangle , but i think telephotos would be fine.


    As for hood improving IQ it really does help quite abit ,as i read a test/analysis done with picture taken with and w/o hoods and the once with hood definitely looked better.
