Just curious how often you use lens hoods. I personally never seem to use them. am I missing something, do they really help.

Thanks in advance

Very rarely take them off my newer, flare-resistant lenses. They help maximize contrast and prevent flare. However, on the old Nikkors I use because of their tendency to flare, I don't use hoods at all.
