I have a Canon 70-300mm lens on my 1200D. I am at college and have been told we need to get a hood for my camera. I do wildlife photography, and I have no idea what type of hood would be best. Can someone advise please?

If your lens is the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, the official lens hood is specified as ET-65B on the Canon website.

If you search "ET-65B hood" on Google or eBay et al, you'll get lots of options to purchase an official Canon one or a third-party imitation.

If you are on a really tight budget, you can download and print a pattern to make a hood for your lens out of stiff paper or cardboard.

This site has patterns for many popular lenses.

Just check Canon's website for the appropriate hood for that lens. Then you can check any camera store or ebay for the genuine article or a cheaper third party knock off.
