Print your own Lens Hoods DIY Hood

Here's a fun post following up on my recent post on Lens Hoods. It's not going to protect you from that concrete post, but it will sure cut the glare out.

We aren't all professionals and sometimes we need a DIY lens hood. Here's a link to a website that lets you download PDF files with a template to Hood the most popular lenses out there for Canon, Nikon, and more. Some of you might already know about the website, but for the newbies check it out. https://www.lenshoods.co.uk

Leave them comments people. If you have a tip to share, a DIY related video you've created or anything else you think will fit this blog, let me know. I'll run a post for ya!

I sometimes rock my Black Rapids Dual Camera straps wearing two cameras at a time with one Wide Lens and one Zoom Lens. This way I won't need to swap lenses when i'm in the zone. It also looks quite macho too. You can purchase these Double Camera Straps by clicking here.

Anyways, i'm a fan of Lens Hoods. They serve more purpose than blocking out glare on the glass, they can also protect the glass or filters from bumping into things. When running around with those Black Rapid straps, it's easy to swing your camera into a table, chair, or concrete post! (Done that before). I found a bunch of them on eBay for fairly cheap. Click Here. You should make sure you get the correct filter size when buying these hoods.

So I placed an order this weekend for my new Canon 100mm IS Macro. (Going to replace my old 100mm Macro - up for sale BTW). I believe it was the last weekend of the available Canon Rebates. So now the price of the 100mm IS Macro jumped back up at least 80 dollars. So i'll need to rock some new Lens Hoods and I thought i'd give these Rubber Lens Hoods a try as suggested by DSLRVideoShooter.com (peep the video below).
