Nikon HB-N104 Lens Hood

You Pay: $27.95
Product Highlights
  • Screw Mount Bayonet Style Lens Hood
  • Blocks Unwanted Light from Entering Lens
  • Reduces Flaring and Ghosts
  • Protects Lens from Accidental Impact
  • Fits 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8 Lens

The HB-N104 Black Lens Hood from Nikon is a bayonet-type lens hood compatible with the 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8 Lens for Nikon 1 CX Format Mirrorless Cameras. Lens hoods are designed to block unwanted light from entering the lens and causing flares and ghosting on the image. The size of this lens hood is designed with the focal length of the 18.5mm lens in mind: long enough to deflect light but not so long as to be seen in the wide angle of view. Lens hoods also offer a degree of protection for the lens from accidental bumps. This lens has a 40.5mm filter thread to screw onto the lens.

        A bit different than expected

            Comments about Nikon HB-N104 Lens Hood:

            Not what I was expecting for a lenshood, a bit unusual, but it works. For those that think it is too loose twist a bit more and it snaps and locks into place. No need to remove it as far as I am concerned.
            Only gripe is the price on something that should be included with the lens.

              Comments about Nikon HB-N104 Lens Hood:

              Not the cheapest accessory, but works well and doesn't necessitate a second lens cap. It does the job and didn't cost too much (especially for an official Nikon accessory).

              Does Job But Easily Falls Off

              By Jack

              from Edmonton Canada

              Comments about Nikon HB-N104 Lens Hood:

              The Nikon lens hood does its job but does not snap tight to the lens like other Nikon 1 lens hoods on other Nikon 1 lens. Very disappointed with Nikon engineering on this particular lens hood. Maybe try the Vello HB-N104 Dedicated Lens Hood (40.5mm Screw-On) instead. Nikon needs to do better.

                  standard lens hood. screw on but not tight on the 18.5mm so it can remove itself. More snug on the 10-30mm. The lens is already set back pretty far so with the hood on you block a lot of light. Gives nice protection as well

                    This lens hood works just fine. Easy to use, lightweight plastic design. Protects the front element from knocks more than the light I suspect. And it still allows the regular lens cap to fit onto it.

                        This hood works, but it is one of the shortest I have ever seen. The hood cannot be mounted in reverse, but that is of no consequence since it is so short.

                              This is the hood for the Nikon V1 18.5mm. What can I say, it's a lens hood. It fits perfectly, as one would expect. It costs about twice what one would expect.
