Hello, i am wondering if anyone has seen custom made lens hoods out there. I have seen this one that looked like it had veins on it & it was attached to a 70-200 Canon lens. It was in one of the photo magazines.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Mark

There are the hoods that come with the lens, and there are some modular systems like the one from Cokin where you can snap on extra hood segments to match the actual focal length of the lens.

A fixed lens shade on a zoom lens is a compromise at best. If it is wide enough to handle the lens at it's shortest/widest without vignetting, it is too wide to properly protect the lens from stray light at it's longest.

The lens hood that I am looking for is just a design on the hood, it really does nothing to the pictures.

I'm a bit confused, I'm trying to imagine what kind of hood you are talking about. :?

I've attached an image of the standard Canon ET-83/ii hood for the Canon EF 70-200 F2.8 L lens. :!:

I will look into the magazine & see if I can find it, then I will scan it & post it here.
