    I have seen sever different kind of canon lens hoods, and not sure why would you use one over the other.

    I have Canon Rebel XS with Kit Lens, and 75-300mm Lens

    Thanks for the help!

    Regards

    You use the one that is recommended and fits your lenses outer bayonet mount. Your 18-55mm lens doesn't need one and the 75-300mm lens hood will only be slightly effective at the widest end.

    A decent lens will be supplied with a hood. Use the hood, let the hood be your friend, become one with the hood.

    I don't use a "protective" filter for my lenses. The hood (in most circumstances) is quite adequate. And as a bonus........ reduces lens flare.
