Canon G7X Mark II Camera
I have been looking for a simple lens hood for a Canon g7x mark II. I do not have a clue. A Canon help desk person sent me to B&H photo. No help there. It seems simple with so many of these things on the market. I just need a soft type lens hood that will fit over the 58mm aperture ring and not impede the function of the telephoto lens. Any ideas or carriers of the product would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your questions about a lens hood for your Canon G7X Mark II. I can understand your frustration with finding a lens hood for your camera. The USA.Canon website is no help either as they list no options for accessories for the G7X Mark II. I'm not a big fan of the magnetic filter holders as a substitute solution to your problem either.
Canon Powershot G7X Mark II Lens Hood Alternative
I have a G1X Mark II and can relate to your issue. The few times I've needed to block direct sunlight from hitting my lens while shooting I've just used my hand or another GOBO (go between) to avoid lens flare.
As another improvised technique, I've also used a rubber band wrapped around the end of the lens and a thin bendable piece of black plastic, positioned to block the direct light. These are makeshift solutions I realize, but this type of Canon point and shoot camera is made to be used simply as a quick point and shoot operation.
Feel free to let the Canon Geek readers know how you solve this issue with your G7x Mark II.
