Re: How many of you use lens hoods?

I always use a lens hood when I shooting outside. It rarely comes off the lens.

I was out at 4am at a fabulous riverside location in Poland without a hood (left in the hotel room for some inexplicable reason). Every shoot ruined by massive flare and lack of contrast. Using a hand or something else to try to shield the lens just doesn't work as well.

For me it's really a case of why would you not use a lens hood. It's not going to do any harm if its not needed, weighs little and requires no effort to use.
