Lens Hood

Camera Lens hoods, also known as lens shades, attach to the front of a camera lens to block unwanted light and glare. Camera Lens hoods are usually made of plastic or metal, and are shaped to fit the specific lens they are designed to fit. Lens caps can either be screwed on or snapped on.
Camera Lens hoods protect the front element of a lens from light striking it at a severe angle, which can cause flare or scattering of light within the lens, which can reduce image contrast. In bright conditions, such as direct sunlight, this can be especially problematic.
