Re: Anyone used AquaTech lens hood on long glass?


I use an Aquatech collapsible hood on an 800mm - as others mentioned, the storage space while traveling is great - put the big lens in a backpack as a carry-on in the plane, and stick the Aquatech in the luggage.

The Aquatech weighs about the same as a "real" hood - no significant weight savings there.

If it gets wet, the Aquatech weighs more than the "real" lens good - and takes a day or two to dry out.

You can stand your tele lens up on the Aquatech - it is sturdy and will hold the load with no problem (but it tends to give others pre-heart failure).

Looks nice, durable - I'd say for travel where space is limited, the Aquatech hood gives you options...an expensive but worthwhile investment.
