Hoods no good.....

they make a thing called a lens hood.

The rubber ones are best.


As mentioned a few times, a lens hood does not help when the sun is in the frame.

In fact if you think about it, the lens hood probably adds problems because the sun light is hitting the lens front and also may be reflected off parts of the inside of the hood (matt black paint isn't perfect black and fully light absorbent) thus adding to the problem.
