Nikon HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses USA

You Pay: $12.95
Product Highlights
  • Deflects Stray Light
  • Protects Lens
  • Petal Shape
  • Bayonet Mount

The HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses from Nikon is a petal-type bayonet mount lens hood for select Nikon wide-angle zoom lenses.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Compatibility
AF-S NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED

    There is much debate over the actual functionality of the Lens Hood beyond that of protecting the lens from bumps and falls. It has proved it's usefulness in protection not long ago when I dropped my camera bag, the hood broke to pieces and the lens was spared. However, the real purpose of the Lens hood has also proved true. When you are shooting in the bright daylight there tends to be a little thing called Lens Flare. I shot without my hood and was surprised at how apparent it was. I have heard people say that you can move around to avoid it, but I'd rather have the hood as an extra precaution. At only [$] and some change for shipping, it would be ludicras to shoot with out it.

    My HB-32 hood is used with the fairly new Nikon 18-140mm
    lens. This is mounted on my Nikon D3x which has a setting to automatically frame areas of the image when shadowed by a lens hood or other impediments such as more than ample attached filters. This may be a failing in the lens design or in what I saw as a curiosity from Nikon as a single lens hood being used for various lenses.
    In any event, it does not perform with Nikon products as a long-time Nikon user expects. NOT B&H fault!

      Comments about HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses:

      Have a Nikon 18-140mm DX VR Lens and Lens Hood helps my photos I take from direct light on a Sunny day to stop Lens Flare! Don't need that kind of light to reduce the Contrast and Color from my Images. Plus protects my lens from damage.

                Comments about HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses:

                Assuming erroneously that a genuine Nikon HB-32 was expensive, I bought an aftermarket knock-off. It was too tight and didn't line up properly when seated. For a few bucks more, I got the Nikon. It fits with a nice click and lines up perfectly. It also reverses and fits over the zoom ring, which still provides enough surface to zoom the lens. When attached in the reverse position, the hood is not as tight, so snug it down a bit and be careful not to lose it. Service from B&H was stellar, as usual.

                I bought this hood as a replacement. There is not much to say. I use it all the time except when I want flare. It's light, its's easy to attach, it attaches backward when in storage so it does not take up much space, it's Nikon and it works like its supposed to.

                The only complaint is it not very rugged but I don't know of any lens hood that is. Overall great product.

                                          Comments about HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses:

                                          My HB-32 hood is used with the fairly new Nikon 18-140mm
                                          lens. This is mounted on my Nikon D3x which has a setting to automatically frame areas of the image when shadowed by a lens hood or other impediments such as more than ample attached filters. This may be a failing in the lens design or in what I saw as a curiosity from Nikon as a single lens hood being used for various lenses.
                                          In any event, it does not perform with Nikon products as a long-time Nikon user expects. NOT B&H fault!

                                          I bought this hood because the Nikon hood was out of stock. It fits perfectly on the lens and cost half the price of the Nikon version.

                                              Wanted an actual Nikon product since after market product was loose and fell off. It fits perfectly.

                                                I use this product on a Nikon 18-140mm lens. It clips on easily, stays secure and functions just as it should. It is not too large as to get in the way, and it is not too small as to not protect well, or shield the lens from flare. It looks great, was priced right. I would definately recomend this hood to anyone with the 18-140 nikkor or any lens that this fits. Great product!

                                                    works as supposed to. Easy to put on for usage or to store. Does not get in the way when putting on the lense cap.
