Just curious to see if people use lens hoods on their film cameras, particularly 35mm SLRs.

I used to religiously use a UV filter, but never a hood.

Now, I use a hood, but never a UV filter. I wish I had wised up a long time ago. The hood makes a much bigger difference, both in protection of the lens' front element as well as in contrast and flare. (or lack thereof)
