Lens hood question
« on: August 08, 2011, 07:11:57 AM »
Hi everyone, I'm still a total beginner so excuse the probably simple question,

I need to buy a lens hood, and am not entirely sure if  I should go with a tulip shaped one or a plain circular one, and what length of hood I should be looking at.
 
I'm using two lenses, the kit lens 18-55mm and another 55 -250mm lens.

Any advice? :)

You have to choose the hood type for your lenses. If you check your lenses on the web it should show what hood is required. For the Canon 55-250mm lens Canon ET 60 Lens Hood, For the 18-55mm lens EW-60C lens hood.  ;D
