Hoods always. Filters 75% of the time. My filters are also my lens caps. Canon lens caps suck.

I generally shoot with the hood, only using the filters when I need them. I take a lot of indoor events pictures, but I still use the hood.

That is a great shot of me when I arrived at the shoot with Jim. He took the picture (Jim Askew). The filtered light (sky lights and regular lights) was not helping with exposure so I was experimenting with the hood on or reversed. I was also afraid I'd scare the dancers more with that monster lens. :) But I hardly ever shoot with the hood reversed.

Only if needed to get the shot, which is rare.

I'm a poor college student, so ........

I rarely shoot with filters or hoods. I have one lens which I just bought that came with a hood included, so that one I use the hood sometimes - depends on where/what I am shooting.

I have a CPL and a UV filter, but that's all I've got, and I can't be bothered to switch them every time I switch lenses (i don't shoot with the same lens all day if I'm out shooting a lot of different things). I also think these screw-on filters can be a real PITA, and i'm not very adept at getting them changed quickly. I figure all the fiddling with it, i'm more likely to CAUSE damage! I only use them if I think I need them. And I am still learning, so I often don't know when I actually need them!

It's the opposite for me, because I can't afford to replace them. I'll take care of my glass, so that it'll last me until it isn't needed anymore.

Though, I rarely shoot with a hood.

I've done it a few times. It also depends on what kind of look you want. If you shoot without a filter outdoors, you'll probably encounter some flare.

Umm, OK. I don't find this but if you do, OK. I can get flare when I want it and avoid it mostly when I don't, even without a hood.

I think I own one filter - a polarizer which I rarely remember to take with me.

I do use my hoods sometimes, but usually I just carry them around on the lens backwards LOL I don't even own a hood for my most used wedding work lens.

I shoot a lot on the beach and in very bright sun and in other pretty harsh conditions. No worries on my end about hurting my lenses and it seems to be working for me.

I always use hoods. I sometimes use circular polarizers. I never ever use UV filters.
