On bright, sunny days stray sunlight across the front lens element can cause flare, robbing your picture of contrast. A lens hood can help you keep the &quotsnap&quot in your pictures by providing shade for your lens.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray Lens Hood:

For those who complain about this lens hood giving a circular pattern around the image when set at wide-angle settings, that is why Ritz also supplies wide-angle lens hoods for an extra [$]. I bought this for my 75-300mm telephoto zoom lens and it works perfectly fine. I may even go get the wide angle lens hood for my wide angle lens.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray Lens Hood:

This hood is designed for telephoto lenses 70mm+. You will get vignetting (a shadow around the corners of the image) if you try to use this with a wide-angle lens.

If you have a wide-angle lens, you need to buy a petal hood, which has cutouts for the corners of the image area.

Not Recommended for Wide Angle Shots
By CTIAIA from Boston, MA on 7/15/2007
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray Lens Hood:

I bought this an an accessory for a 18mm - 200mm lense. At maximum wide angle you get curved blurred images at the corners, with the hood collapsed! I spend a lot of time cropping this out of the shots. DO NOT BUY THIS FOR THIS APPLICATION.

Would Not Recommend
By RetusnavyVerified Reviewer from El Cajon, CA on 12/20/2006
Pros:
Prevents Some Glare
Cons:
Causes Shadow On Picture
Best Uses:
Landscape Pictures

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray Lens Hood:

I have this hood mounted on a Canon Digital Rebel XT with a EFS 18-55mm lens. When set to 18mm, the hood causes a circular black shadow to appear around the picture. Nice effect if you want it all the time.
