Canon Lens Hoods - Straight or Flower Design?
Jan 11, 2010

I have a Canon XSi and I want to buy a lens hoods for my EF-S 18-55mm and EF-S 55-250mm lenses. I can get a straight hood for around $11.00 or the Canon rotating flower design for around $27.00.

I notice most of the pros seem to use the flower design on there lenses. Does the flower design produce better image quality than the straight hood and does rotating adjust the amount of sun protection? I don't mind paying the extra money if the flower design will produce better results and is more versatile.

Thanks for any info!
Mike
