Hehlo....

Eh.... can someone tell me how many types of lens hood are there?
And how to know which lens hood to buy?

I have been reading the forum, some said it's unless, some said is useful, good, important to have.....

But, I do not know which lens hood to buy and how much it will cost.... and also thinking whether I need one...

Only using kit lens 18-55mm and 50mm...

Hope someone can enlighten me... 10'Q :sweat:

I use the D50 with the kit lens and 50mmf1.8. I think that I do not need lens hood for these lenses. I have the 70-300mm lens that comes with a lens hood, and I mostly use the lens hood to prevent flaring.

I don't know about you though. Do you face many situation where you shots got flare with the kit and 50mm lens? If you do, then go get one. I am not sure which one though?
