Hoods, Covers, Caps, and Pouches

During our shoot, swapping lenses from several different cameras, things got lost in the shuffle. Hoods, DSLR Body Caps, lens Caps, Rear Caps, gear was just everywhere. Gotta always carry some spares if you want to protect that sweet glass and prevent dust in the DSLR.

As bright as it's been these past few days, hoods really help prevent washed out images by shading the lens glass as well as protect the front of the lens from minor bumps. If you have lenses that didn't come with hoods, check out these three stage rubber hoods that can snap back for wide lenses or spring forward for zoom lenses. Sweetest part is that they don't take up much bag space like the hard plastic hoods. They will fit any lens as long as you get the right filter size, starting at less than $3.50 cents.

Front lens caps are the worst. With too many people and too many cameras, front lens caps for me are notoriously walking off from a shoot. I pack my gear fairly tight into as little bags as possible and missing a lens cap sucks big time. Here's a link to some inexpensive front Snap lens caps complete with Nikon or Canon Logos for as little as $2.00 dollars + Free Shipping.

  3. I have one. The only problem I have with it (the most annoying one), that it gets in the way of the lens on wide angles. I have a kit lens 18-55 Ef II and even if it's snapped back for wide - it still gives a big vignette around the frame.

  4. Hi Emm,

    Do you actually own one of these? I've been eyeing these for day-time video shooting with Fader-ND on 24-70 lens, but they are almost impossible to screw onto with the Canon lens hood...

    But from the reviews I've seen, they usually breaks within short amount of time, or they simply won't fit, meaning 77mm ND filter will need something larger than 77mm in order to fit 77mm, do you have any experiences on these?


  5. Hi Emm, do you own one of these rubber lens hoods? Mine does not stand in Position 2 - so I wanted to know if this one really does.
    Thanks, jonni
