    What is a lens hood exactly?

    Someone a while back recommended I get one to help reduce # of analamies I migt get from when I do my ghosthunting. I just not sure exactly what it does.

    Any specific brand I should get.

    It's just a hood that extends from the front of the lens. It helps keep out light from the sides of your shot. Most telephoto len's have them built in.

    What kind of camera?

    Here's a site with all kinds of hoods.
