Product Highlights
  • For Nikon 55mm f/1.2 Ai, 50mm f/1.4 AF, 50mm f/1.8 AF, 50mm f/1.8D AF Lenses

The dedicated Vello HR-2 Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On) is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 55mm f/1.2 Ai, 50mm f/1.4 AF, 50mm f/1.8 AF, 50mm f/1.8D AF Lenses.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Moreover, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. And since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

This lens hood features anti-reflective ridges on its interior.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens.
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light.
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements.

      This flexible lens hood worked well on my 50mm. It simply folds back and over the lens when not in use. I read another review on this HR-2 rubber lens hood that said it was too wide in the folded position. I think that reviewer didn't fold it back enough. All you have to do is push it back far enough so that it folds completely over the lens barrel and it won't stick out at all.
      Only time will tell whether or not the rubber will disintegrate, but for now it seems durable and is certainly worth the price. Perhaps the only drawback I can see is that you have to screw it on rather than attaching it with a twist-snap.

      The bad: the hood in the box was NOT 58mm, it was 55mm and thus is certainly not "dedicated" to the 50mm f/1.4. The good news is it does fit my 35mm 1.8 so I kept it. I am not sure whether it was miss-packaged or just not what it supposed to be. The hood is, however made well and doesn't retract with slight contact as some I have used. Yes, I would recommend to a friend, but would stress inspection upon arrival.

      Needed to replace a lost lens hood and decided to buy this one at a cost savings of $5 from the brand name. Worth the cost and just a good as original.

      Comments about Vello HR-2 Dedicated Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On):

      I bought this rubber hood for my Nikon 50mm lens which requires Nikon HR-2 lens hood which is more expensive than Vello HR-2. This hood fits well to my lens and collapses for easy storage. This is the only rubber hood I have and not sure yet how much it will protect the lens. It is a well made product and does not look cheap.

              The hood is a soft rubber which is most helpful when your bending over allowing the camera to swing from your neck. Now when it hit someone or something it does no damage.

                    I have this lens hood on a 50mm f1.8. It's so effective and simple. No mucking around with screwing a hood on or with a bayonet fitting. Just push the hood forward or back.

                            Interesting lens hood, made mostly of rubber and folds down flat when not in use. It does have enough of a larger diameter to make it difficult to keep on the lens and place it in a lens pouch. I'm not sure how long the rubber will hold out with repeated flexing from opening and closing, but hope it lasts a while.

                                    It's cheap, and it works. What more do you want?I do not do much flash photography, so I could see the thing getting in the way of a flash and causing some bad shadows. But really, it takes the same amount of effort to take off as any hood. I think it's great.

                                        Comments about Vello HR-2 Dedicated Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On):

                                        The HR-2 Lens Hood works great. It screws on to the UV filter that I use on my Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 lens with no problems. It takes almost no space in my camera bag because it's collapsible. Plus I think lenses just look cooler with a hood on them, whether they need it or not. Great value.

                                          Comments about Vello HR-2 Dedicated Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On):

                                          The bad: the hood in the box was NOT 58mm, it was 55mm and thus is certainly not "dedicated" to the 50mm f/1.4. The good news is it does fit my 35mm 1.8 so I kept it. I am not sure whether it was miss-packaged or just not what it supposed to be. The hood is, however made well and doesn't retract with slight contact as some I have used. Yes, I would recommend to a friend, but would stress inspection upon arrival.

                                              I bought this for an old Nikon 50mm lens that I'm using with an adapter and video camera, and it does the trick. Elimates lots of flare, comes on and off easily... nothing not to like.
