I am looking for a snap on style tulip hood for my Canon Rebel XT with an EFS 18-55mm lens. I have not been able to find one specifically for that lens. Looking for recommendations.

This any good?

Does a tulip style hood make sense with a spinning front element?

(note the "vignetting due to barrel rotation" throughout the comments)
HTH!

Not unless you enjoy constantly adjusting it. Get the Canon hood made for your lens, or a 3rd party perfect clone, not some generic one size fits none.

That's because they don't make petal style hoods specifically for lenses with a rotating front element.

What he said.
The Canon's specified hood for the 18-55 is EW-60C:

Like others have posted it doesn't work with the spinning front element. I prefer the style of hood the 18-55 uses, as with the tulip style you attract a lot more attention.

Tulip style hoods make your lenses look cooler. But they don't work if the front element spins. Unless you like taking pictures of their insides.

I'm all for 3rd party equipment but I eventually had to replace the low priced ebay hoods for genuine (overpriced) Canon ones because of vignetting issues. It would be nice if Canon followed the lead of their competitors and gave free hoods for all their lenses and not just the expensive ones.

This sounds quite contradictory:I never saw a knockoff to differ from the original,shape/dimensi​on-wise (and THIS is what it counts when we're talking about vignetting).
Material quality,inner felt,stamped brand,overall finish,yes...but NOT shape.
Are you shure that the eBay copy that caused you the vignetting (and you had to replace it with a genuine Canon) wasn't intended for another lens?

Thanks so much for all the input. I had just ordered the tulip hood from B&H before I saw the posts. Fortunately I had time to change the order to the EW-60C hood instead. I had never really looked at the lens to see that it rotates when auto-focusing. I would have been disappointed. Thanks again for the invaluable input from those who answered my post.

BTW, B&H does list this tulip lens hood for the 18-55 lens.

The two hoods were specifically for the 18-55 kit lens and the 55-250. Maybe they were poorly made or incorrectly labeled Chinese knock offs. They didn't work out for me so rather than order more 3rd party ones I just got some Canons. If I'm one of the unlucky few that had issues, no worries.

Whoever wrote the advertisement was apparently full of misinformation.
