      Hey guys,

      I bought a used Canon XL-1 on ebay, but in the picture of the camera the lens doesn’t have a hood. What should I do? I am aware of the importance of the lens hood, preventing lens glare, etc… but is there any solution to this? Is there anywhere (or anyone) that can sell me a replacement lens hood for a reasonable price?

      People sell lens hoods for most cameras on Ebay. Have you checked there to see if anyone is selling one that fits your camera? If not, I bet places like B&H or Markertek would sell them (it’s a common thing that gets lost or broken, so a lot of places sell them).

      I’m not exactly sure of what size would fit… is it 72mm?

      yeah, i think the xl2 has a 72mm thread.
      you could also go all out and buy a matte box πŸ™‚

      Do I have to look for a certain type, or will any 72mm lens hood work/fit on/screw on?

      Canon XL-1 may be coming with the variety of lenses. Check the model of your lens and corresponding thread for your hood:

      I wouldn’t assume it doesn’t have a lens hood just because it’s not in the picture. There are alot of pictures out there of the XL1 with no lens hood. It will probably have one with it.
