Lens hood for SX50
Jan 18, 2013

Anyone have a lens hood for their SX50?  I've found a 58mm adapter at Lensmate, but wondered if anyone has a hood that doesn't vignette on a 58mm adapter and if so where they found it.  Thanks

Is this what you want?

Interesting that Lensmate redesigned the filter adapter for SX50 while Canon didn't.  Note that on predecessor models the Canon petal-type hood attached to the lens barrel on the same mount as the filter adapter (i.e. no need for the adapter to use the hood) - can't say if one of those hoods would work on SX50.  (Hood came included with my SX10 - good old days long gone.)

I saw that one and it'll do if that's all I can find, but just wondered if there were any others out there, like a petal type.

I know what you mean.  I have a canon 15-85 lens that didn't come with a lens hood either.

I have the lens hood that Canon sells for the SX50 - honestly it is so small I am nit sure it does anything and you cannot have both the lens hood and a filter attached at the same time.  It is either or due to the mounting bracket.  At it's longest point it is approximately 1 inch and since it is a deeply scalloped petal type there are large areas where the actual hood is less than 1/2 inch.

A friend is borrowing the camera so I cannot take a picture of the hood in relation to the camera but it is very tiny.

This is my biggest peeve with Canon - not including hoods on non-L lenses, and then charging too much for theirs.

Maybe I'd just be better off using an adapter and a polorizing or uv filter then. Or maybe the inexpensive rubber hood.  Thank you

I've also bought the original Canon lens hood, and when I unpacked it, I was almost shocked at how small it was ... and what I had to pay for it: 36 Swiss Francs (which is about USD 40.00 and EUR 29.00). That's almost 10 % of the camera value and way overprized!!

This is the one I am using and it seems to work fine.  It is metal screw-in and comes with a cap.  I bought it using PayPal from http://www.heavystar.com/servlet/Categories  Good experinece with sellar!  It took about 7-8 days to get with normal shipping.  FYI I am screwing it into the Lensmate 58mm filter adapter.

I just checked out the link and it's pages of products, what's the name of the hood, so I can look at it? It sounds like just what I'm looking for.  Ijust found all of the 58mm hoods, but which one did you get?   Thanks

This is the product description on Amazon. It's about $4 and fits perfectly.

Sorry about that, when I checked the link it took me right to the hood & cap?  It is not a tulip hood if that is what you really want?  Here is the description:
