Nikon HB-36 Lens Hood for 70-300mm VR Lens USA

You Pay: $14.95

The dedicated Nikon HB-36 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the 70-300mm VR lens.

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.

      Although a hood seems trivial, I have compared my outdoor youth football photos with and without a hood.

      Since over the course of a game (or any outdoor shooting) you will be at multiple positions relative to the sun, this hood is a must for sunny days. It also does a good job of hiding dust or dirt that may be on your lens. The dust spots will still be on your image but it won't be as obvious as it would have been without a hood.

      This hood fits on my 70-300mm lens. The depth does a great job of blocking shallow (but still bright) sun angles. I strongly recommend buying this hood over any of the generic (shallow) ones typically found at your local photo store.

      Lastly, if you're selling your photos, the hood makes your lens look really long and expensive. Sometimes, that goes a long way towards giving a professional image and justifying a professional price.

          The best part about good customer service at B&H and a good quality product like a Nikon Bayonet Lens Hood is getting the package! This was a replacement for a battered up lens hood, it finally giving it up to save a lens. Gotta like that about a lens hood!

                    Replacement for lost lens hood. Works as advertised. This is not a minor statement because before I ordered this I ordered a third party "replacment" hood for half the price which does not fit properly. Lesson learned.

                        This was a replacement for the one that came with my 70-300. The original one got damaged while my camera was accidentally kicked from the front seat of a SUV. I am not sure if it in-fact saved the lens and Camera but intuitively it appears to have. in this case being plastic and costing only [$]means it did what it was designed to do.Even thought one side of the bayonet clip was broken it still worked albeit loosely, but allowed me to use it during the rest of the trip. As far as its primary job it is a great Hood.

                                  I love this lens hood! It's very sturdy and snaps on with ease. There isn't anything I dislike about this hood. The only reason I bought just the hood was because I bought the nikon 70-300mm VR from a pawn shop and it didn't come with the hood.

                                  Overall I love this hood and can see it lasting a long time!

                                      Great for reducing glare and protecting your lens/filter from light rain. Plus,it makes your lens look even longer.

                                        I got a used 70-300mm and it didn't come with a lens hood so I purchased this one. It works great. This was cheaper than buying the used lens with the lens hood.

                                        Lose or break your lens hood? Don't expose your glass to the light of day without one. Yes, even the best of lens out there will fall victim to flare. I'm sure you could find a generic replacement at less cost, but, for a couple bucks more, here's the genuine article, designed for your specific lens. (believe it: there is good reason for the location, depth, and width of the scalloped cutouts.) So, unless you're looking to upgrade your lens hood to an adjustable bellows lens hood, here is exactly what you need, at a very reasonable price [...]

                                          Although a hood seems trivial, I have compared my outdoor youth football photos with and without a hood.

                                          Since over the course of a game (or any outdoor shooting) you will be at multiple positions relative to the sun, this hood is a must for sunny days. It also does a good job of hiding dust or dirt that may be on your lens. The dust spots will still be on your image but it won't be as obvious as it would have been without a hood.

                                          This hood fits on my 70-300mm lens. The depth does a great job of blocking shallow (but still bright) sun angles. I strongly recommend buying this hood over any of the generic (shallow) ones typically found at your local photo store.

                                          Lastly, if you're selling your photos, the hood makes your lens look really long and expensive. Sometimes, that goes a long way towards giving a professional image and justifying a professional price.

                                                I was asked to review this product that I recently purchased. Let's see. The taste is fairly ordinary--kind of a rather chewy hard plastic shell. It's not much of a conversation piece either. Basically, it's a hood and it does what you expect it to do. I have no complaints and would definitely recommend it.
