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



And they do help (to reduce reflections from light impinging on the surface of the lens/filter).

Protection is also important.  Plastic lens hoods are much more flexible than lenses so they absorb impact shock before the lens takes it.

Next time you watch a sports event see how many lenses don't have hoods.
