The main use for a lens hood is to keep light from hitting the front lens element from the side – which in turn reduces the contrast and creates flare. Pictures taken with a lens hood installed on the camera will generally have richer colors and deeper saturation.
Hoods also serve to protect the lens from knocks and falls, which can cost a lot of money to replace it
Utilizing a lens hood protects the glass from bumps and knocks.
It also keeps accidental fingerprints and smudges off the lens which means less handling and cleaning of the lens!
