In this short video find out the importance of a lens hood on your camera and compare the results with and without


    1. Hi, why do you think they should be round? In fact it would make more sense for them to be as close as possible to the sensor shape (rectangle) so that they maximise the cut off angle of light coming towards the lens but rectangle lens hood are more difficult to make and store on the lens. In other classes you will see me use a home made ‘window mask’ for flare reductiton.
