    The hood is designed specifically for the lens and should never show in your images. I would think even aftermarket hoods would be the same, but not sure.

    [EDIT:]
    can't see images ATM..... work computer.... :grumpy:

    Looks like you just have the wrong sized lens hood?

    I don't see the white patch you are referring to with the hood off?

    the 400D doesn't have a hood, the lenses have a hood. Each hood is different for each lens. What lens are you using and what's the model/product number on the hood?

    As VI said...those SLR cameras don't have hoods or filter threads...the lenses do.

    And just because a hood fits (58mm) does not mean that it will work properly. If the lens has a field of view that is wider than the hood opening, then you will have the problem that we are seeing here.

    Also, adding to the problem is all the stuff you have stacked onto the lens. "conversion lense adapter + 58mm CPL + 58mm 400D's hood". The further out the accessories and hood are, the more likely they are to get into the field of view.

    I'd suggest looking for a wider lens hood but if you can't find one, then just shade the lens with something (you hand, a hat etc) when shooting into the sun light where flare is likely to occur.

    But the "kit" lens doesn't always come with the 400D or people sell other lenses with it. That's why whoever sold you the hood, didn't know what they were doing or just wanted to make money off of you.

    The problem with a bigger lens hood, is that it might not effectively block the light from hitting the lens.
