When a lens hood is attached to the lens, it can reduce image ghosting 
or flare by blocking stray light. The lens hood can also protect the front 
of the lens from raindrops, snow, dust, etc.
Although the lens hood is usually sold separately, certain lens kit 
configurations have it included.
Attach the lens hood.
 
Turn the lens hood as shown by the 
arrow until it attaches securely.

To detach the lens hood, grasp the base of the hood when turning it. 
Grasping the hood’s edges when turning it may deform the hood.
 
If the lens hood is not properly attached, the hood might appear in the 
picture with the image periphery looking dark.
 
Before using the built-in flash, detach the lens hood. Otherwise, the lens 
hood may partially block the flash and cause a darkened area in the 
picture.
The hood can be mounted in reverse on the lens for storage.
