Vello HB-69 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-69 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II 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-69 reviews

    HB-69 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy!!! This was one of my first accessories purchased for my camera. I was skeptical at first but with use I found how much a hood can help. Also the ease of installation and removal for when you need or don't need this was awesome. I also thought the durability of the product is very good as well since I accidentally smacked it against something one time while I was in a rush and not only did it not break but it protected my lens and prevented the crystal in lens from getting scratched. This is well worth the money and comparable to the more expensive ones. I recommend one of these to anyone considering an accessory purchase for thier camera!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate Lens Hood; Expected Performance I purchased this Vello lens hood and received it about two weeks ago. It performs exactly as I expected and greatly reduces unwanted flares, haze, and discoloration, especially for night shots. Some people claim the hood is thin and flimsy plastic, but this is untrue. I found the plastic, although somewhat bendable(which is a good thing!), was perfectly adequate and I wasn't worried about it breaking in the least. I use the hood for my Nikon AF-S 18-35mm 3.5-5.6 VR II kit lens (No budget for lenses right now) and it fits securely and locks in place properly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy With This Lens Hood Perfect fit and finish. Rotates easily, then locks on with a reassuring click. It aint going nowhere. Good value and reasonable shipping. Got it in three business days using Super Saver method. I would recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful-should have come with the lens! Fits correctly, and made of slightly more flexible plastic than Nikon uses so hopefully bends instead of breaking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't forget to click it, to lock it into place! Perfect fit. After reading all the reviews from those who say that it fits loosely, I'm guessing that they didn't rotated the lens hood fully to lock it into place...! It locks on with a reassuring click. This is a very nice piece of kit, that fits and works just as well as my OEM Lens Hood. Cheers, Mark

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from next time I would buy the Nikon brand I did not not like this item, it would not stay tightly secured to the lens, next time I will stick with the original, I would not recommend this item

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For 18-55mm VR Lens Good product for the price. I have no issue with the construction or material. Its thinner than a Nikon issue, but I don't care. Fits snugly, is easy to remove and will do the job. It looks sharp on my little D3300. I do appreciate B&H offering alternative products to save money for the better things that really count!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old school protection for both the lens and the image Arrived on time and performs as anticipated. Installed for use it both protects the lens and minimizes unwanted light from peripheral sources. Installed backwards it continues to protect the lens in kit bags or storage. It is light weight, tough, and installs with only a twist of the wrist. Yes. I would buy it again.
