Default Lens Hood

Hi all, Does anybody use the supplied Lens Hood for for FZ35? The camera does not fit well in the case with the hood attached, the manual says do not use the hood for flash shots. Need advice.

The Hood is not need for most of your shoots. But can be used for outdoors in the bright sun to avoid glare on the lens. When packing your camera into the case, leave it unattached as I place mine above the camera in my Lowepro Apex 110AW bag, perfect fit.

I've never used the lens hood on any of the several thousand shots I've taken. Personally, I have never felt the need to use it.

There are times I see I could have used it but don't' as its a pain to use because I don't keep the hood adapter on the camera.

I use a rubber, collapsible lens hood that prevents lens flare when shooting outdoors. It can just be folded back and it takes up hardly any space, yet is there ready when I need it.

Thanks Sarah, do you have a brand name for that collapsible lens hood? Sounds like you have the answer.

Actually there is another reason for the lens hood. I took pictures in the rain yesterday and they all had water drops on the lens issues. A hood may have alleviated this.

I wouldn't trust taking photographs in the rain it could damage the camera. U do get camera guards or cover to use it in the rain.
