Vello HB-53 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-53 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 24-120mm f/4 ED VR lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you 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. The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

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

    Vello HB-53 reviews

    HB-53 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit Used on Nikon 24-120mm lens. It fits perfectly!! No different from the Nikon OEM.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it's designed to do! Great lens shade, and way cheaper than the Nikon version.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money Bought a a replacement for the original Nikon hood that got misplaced. Seems as well made as the original ( plastic ). Tiny bit of play once locked - but it doesn't rattle. One fault I'd point out is the Vello name is on a sticker on the hood ( not painted on ). After some rubbing, general rough use, I don't know how well that will hold up Overall, a great replacement

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loose Fit / Doesn't Lock On my Nikon 24-120, this hood does not lock securely and has fallen off a number of times when brushed against my hip (I use a shoulder sling so this happens frequently). When on, it is also loose--rocking and bouncing on the lens. Skip this and spend the extra money for the Nikon-made hood, or you'll wind up spending money for both, like me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Nikon at a 1/3 the price This lens hood is sturdier than the Nikon version and works just as well. Except for the tiny Vello trademark it's indistinguishable from the Nikon lens hood. You and your lens will like it and so will your wallet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy!!!!!! This lens hood was NOT compatible with my Nikon 24-120 f4 VR lens! It would not securely screw on and was completely loose. I returned it immediately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy again It is a little flimsier but it fits a little tighter than the original Nikon unit. Does not lock on the reversed position but that is not a big deal.
