    I am just looking for someone to show me what difference a lens hood makes when taking pictures. I know people say they are really a necessity for taking pics and lens protection but I currently don't have one. So please show me what I am missing! Thanks.

    Go outside on a sunny day early morning or late afternoon. Look toward the sun. Now shade you eyes from the glare. Which works better? Your eye is a lens and the improvised hood you just made does the same thing as a hood on a camera lens does.

    With that angle you'd get flare even with a hood.... the sun's in the picture.

    Clarify one thing for me. Was this a photo of some trees and you got lens flare or was this supposed to be a photo of lens flare and some trees snuck in?:lmao:

    Like I said, it's a CCTV still.

    Can't say much beyond that since it's a total wikipedia rip and now I'm sure that I'll be getting yet another pm because I didn't change it to a link before everyone quoted it...

    c'est la vie

    closed-circuit TV, the same stuff that store surveillance is.
    Not generally known for optical excellence, as shown in the still.
