5.0 out of 5 stars Lens hood
I have been looking for a lens hood and the original price is expensive for a little piece of plastic. On finding this item it was ideal and a bargain. works exactly like the original model.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed by simple design flaw
Unlike previous reviewer, this was a disappointing purchase. For the price, I should have known wouldnt be a well engineered product.

Although arriving from Hong Kong inside the expected delivery schedule, there is a fundamental flaw in the design. As with other hoods, it connects to the lens via a bayonet type fixing. Inside the hood is a small sprung "lug"...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed by simple design flaw, 11 Jun 2012

This review is from: CamRepublic EW-78D EW78D Lens Hood for Canon EF 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (Electronics)
Unlike previous reviewer, this was a disappointing purchase. For the price, I should have known wouldnt be a well engineered product.

Although arriving from Hong Kong inside the expected delivery schedule, there is a fundamental flaw in the design. As with other hoods, it connects to the lens via a bayonet type fixing. Inside the hood is a small sprung "lug" which stops the hood rotating unexpectedly. Unfortuantely, this lug does not align with the fitting on the lens, and on first attach, sprung clean out of the hood and across the room. It's basically a small piece of plastic badly manufactured that doesnt do what it needs to.

For now, I've taken both lugs out. There is enough resistance in the fitting to ensure it is not likely to move unexpectedly, but it left a disappointing experience. I also dont see the point in returning to Hong Kong given the price paid - after all, you get what you pay for.

In terms of practical use - I purchased this for 18-200mm Canon lens - no signs of hood in the frame and it clearly protects from stray light sources.

Looked at the Canon OEM one and it is a tad expensive whereas this one is identical and very reasonably priced.

Keeps out glare and can be fitted back to front for storage or transport.

Really pleased with it.

This was just what I was looking for at a reasonable price. Cuts down unwanted side light and fts well. Stores nicely on lens when fitted on backwards.

Came from abroad in about a week, is nice sturdy plastic and feels good quality. Fits well on the Canon 18-200mm lens. Can't imagine that the genuine Canon one would be any better quality. Highly recommended.

No problems what so ever, fits like a glove on my canon 18-200 lens and at a fraction of the cost of the cannon equivalent. Will buy again if needed.

Great price, just a shame Canon don't include these with their lenses considering price of their lenses, especially when the makers of cheaper lenses seem to include them with their products, not to mention the Canon hoods being expensive whereas these alternatives are far cheaper and do exactly same job. So a thumbs up to CamRepublic :-)

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Obviously not as good as the canon hood but at a fraction of the price it is definitely worth a go!

I bought this Lens Hood because, like a lot of camera accessories, you pay through the nose for these little bits of plastic when they are made by same people who made your expensive camera. This hood fits perfectly, is reversable & one can take the lens cap on & off with it in position. if it lasts a year or two I wil be happy.
