Product Description

Petal lens hood for all 58mm lens threads. When used it does not allow for a lens cap to be fitted, lens hood will need to be removed to fit lens cap. This lens hood screws into the front of your lens or filter as a very good alternative to an expensive original hood. It also has a clamp collar nut that only needs a slight pressure to tighten onto your lens so it it not easily lost.. ( do not over tighten or you risk threading). Some edge shadowing may occur depending on your lens. Some Wide angle lenses may show excessive shadows and this hood is not recommended. Internal focus lenses only recommended also otherwise the petal hood would spin as focus occurs. Petal lens hood for all 58mm lens threads.

As for other reviews on other makes of hoods this Maxim hood screws very easily onto my UV filter & direct onto my CANON lenses, very happy. Other reviews on other makes of hoods stating screw threads do not match up & hard to put on & take off leaving damage to the thread. This is not the case with the one Ive received. Good for the price as CANON is twice the price.

At the price I have no comlaints. I am an amature photographer, just moving away from aim and fire, so I'm sure there are better but this will do me, at least for now.

Excellent crown hood and you cannot go wrong for that price.

Would definitely recommend it to all amateur and semi pro photographers.

Screws on fine even with a non-Canon filter on the front. Light but seems pretty solid. I'm only an amateur photographer, and a beginner at that, but when screwed onto my 18-55, the protruding parts of the hood appear in the shot when zoomed right out (ie, 18mm). Not sure if this is a problem with me, or the hood.

It fits the Canon EF-S 18-55 mm IS Lens, and I didn't notice any shadowing even at 18mm. With the UV filter on though, the hood moves a few mm forward from the lens, and the round bit inside the hood gets in the way, causing the corners of the picture to get dark. I don't think this is because of the petals, because they would appear on the sides.

Personally I regret buying this hood and would not recommend it to anyone to use with the EF-S 18-55 mm IS Lens, for the reasons explained in the product description which somehow I seem to have missed reading. The front side of this lens rotates while focusing and so does the hood. Other reviewer said he/she uses the locking ring to rotate the hood; so do I for now, unfortunately, but that ring is to be used for tightening it onto the lens/filter, not to keep the hood straight when focusing.

I will have to buy a different one soon.

There is no fool like an old fool and based upon that adage I purchased this hood, which as a hood does exactly what it is supposed to do, unfortunately I did not heed the warning that you cannot fit a lens cap or that it does not possess a reversible fitting which allows you to fit the hood on back to front for storage, or simply carrying with you attached to the camera.

It is a robust piece of plastic, which I feel that it should be for the price; albeit half the price of the Canon branded item, which I have to say does offer everything that this does not.

If you simply want a hood, there is absolutley nothing wrong with this other than it does not fit onto the lens for storage, you can't fit a lens cap and which has left me wondering why I didn't heed the comments of others.

i used it on my standard is 18-55mm lens(canon 60d), at 18mm the hood will get in the picture which is a shame because its one of the only hood at an acceptable price, its plastic like all hoods nothing wrong with the build quality but if i had to pay more i would expect more than plastic(canon hoods), how about aluminium? or something stronger and still light.
