The HN-CP17 Lens Hood from Nikon is a screw-mount lens hood compatible with the Nikon COOLPIX P7700 Digital Camera.

          Comments about Nikon HN-CP17 Lens Hood:

          I bought this hood and a 40.5mm CPL filter and found them an awkward combination, especially when mounting and dismounting. I found a better use for the hood as an accessory mount for a 58mm CPL with a hood of its own, and just leave this hood on camera. Buy a 58mm lens cap. As I do not use the onboard flash I don't mind this hood blocking it, which it does. Otherwise I find the hood durable and nicely made.

          Just a requirement for using the camera outside. Just simply required, in my opinion.

            Comments about Nikon HN-CP17 Lens Hood:

            I screwed it into the 40.5mm UV filter and it prevents flare at all focal lengths. I wish the 40.5mm lens cap would fit wihin it, but the outer edge accommodates a 58mm lens cap, the same size as for the ends of the accessory tube. The depth is not too great to be an annoyance when camera is carried on strap.

              Does what it is supposed to do. Only issue is standard p7700 lens cap is not useable with the lens hood on. Requires a 58mm cap that fits the outside diameter of the lens hood. I bought a 58mm Sensei center pinch cap from B&H for less than $4.00, and now it's perfect.

              Comments about Nikon HN-CP17 Lens Hood:

              This adapter works great for adding 58mm filters to the camera with minimal increase to the camera thickness. This is useful for adding common filters for work outside. Inside, I don't see much use for it. The only downside is that it partially blocks the pop-up flash. When adding this to the camera, I suggest adding a UV filter and a 58mm lens cap to replace the 40.5mm stock one. The stock Nikon lens cap with a tether (NILC58 & SECKL) works great.

              Comments about Nikon HN-CP17 Lens Hood:

              First impression: just for protection of my lens. I was kinda wrong. It actually works quite nice to block some undesired sun light. I use it all the time now and it actually allows you to put a standar 58mm filter. Again, just a little extra protection for the lens, but with the advantage to put some extra ND filters (among the internal on the camera). It is nice to notice that it adds NO sensible weight to the camera and the only drawback I see is that it increases the size of the "pocket" size camera. It makes the camera feel a bit more fragile or suceptible to be broken inside the bag. Overall, highly recomendable for the Nikon P7700.

              Comments about Nikon HN-CP17 Lens Hood:

              Received in a timely manner. Fits the P7700 lens easily and, as a bonus, also works well with my Nikon 1 V1. End of the hood is 58mm, so one could keep it on at all times as long as they have a 58mm lens cap. Which brings up the only drawback, which is that the stock lens cap needs to be removed in order for this to fit, and the lens cap does not fit inside the lens hood. That's the only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5.

                    I love the hood, but sorta useless if you can't fit the lens cap on. The only way to put your cap back on is to unscrew the hood and find a place to stash it. I guess a larger cap that fit on the hood would solve the problem but one is not offered. Probably sending it back.
