The Best Lens Hood And UV Filter Combo FOR THE PRICE of ₹289
Reviewed in India on 20 November 2018
I own a Canon 700D with 2 kit lens, EF-S 18-55mm and EF-S 55-250mm Non STM lens. I have attached the UV filter to the 18-55mm lens and the Lens Hood to 55-250mm lens.
UV Filter:- I am using the UV filter just for protecting the front element (glass) of the lens. So I wanted something cheap that was cheap and be replaced easily. Please note that any and every filter you add to your lens WILL reduce picture quality, no matter the quality of the filter element. But other than the insignificant, slightly increased Chromatic Aberrations when using a wide angle lens, I personally, didn't find any difference in picture quality. The original Canon lens cap fits perfectly on the filter, so there's no need to remove the filter. Once, it's in place, secured tightly in front of the front element, it seems like its a part of the original lens.
Lens Hood:- Plastic Quality is REALLY BAD. It cracked while trying to screw it on the lens (See Picture). It's still usable. Works like its supposed to. NOT TO BE USED WITH WIDE ANGLE LENS. Otherwise the hood is visible in the pictures.
