Lens Hood Shade

Lens Hood Shade
50mm prime lens owners: Do you use a bell to help reduce glare??

1) If the lens is placed deep enough, is a bell / shadow is still necessary to reduce glare? Or more to the means of protection? 2) Also, when using a UV filter as a skylight or 50 mm which is hidden, then only needed a bell, and the filter adds another element to the front?

I used a 50 mm lens many years without a bell. He had a rubber cap, but never saw the need to use it, even when using filters. Bells more useful on wide angle lenses, or at any time of shooting into strong light sources. It all depends on you. If you have reflexes, use a hood. If you do not, you're good.
