The dedicated Altura Photo® EW-63C Replacement Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens. Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. Dedicated lens hoods are designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.Features
- Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens.
- Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light.
- Shields the front of your lens from extraneous light, Improving overall image contrast and color saturation.
- Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements.
