Vello HB-50 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-50F Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G 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.

This lens hood features a filter access panel that allows you to easily reach and adjust rotating filters without the need to remove the hood from the lens. 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
Filter access panel can be removed for easy adjustment of rotating filters.

    Vello HB-50 reviews

    HB-50F Dedicated Lens Hood with Filter Access Panel is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Alternative to Brand Name Hood Works well as a less expensive lens hood for my Nikon lens. When the hood is properly attached to the lens, a little sliding door is accessible on top of the hood. The idea is that the user can open the little door and put a finger through the opening to rotate a polarizing filter on the lens. On my hood, the little door is very stiff and hard to open. Indeed, it's so hard to open that I fear I may break it if I try to force it open. This is not a big deal for me, because I can easily reach around the side of the hood to rotate a filter. I suspect that if I were persistent enough I could open the door and it would loosen up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, good buy Lost my OEM Nikon lens hood because it is easily jarred loose from the lens in use. This lens hood attaches to lens in the same manner but far more securely than the original Nikon product--at half the price. Filter rotating finger port may be useful, but the cover is easy to lose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheaper and better It fits a little better (snugger) than the original and its less than half the price. Couldn't be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of Vello HB-50F Dedicated Lens Hood w/ Filter Access This is a better lens hood for the Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens as it keeps tight in place without becoming loose unlike the Nikon HB-50 lens hood, the filter access opening really makes this a better lens hood than the Nikon HB-50 and cost less. Even if the price is the same as the Nikon, I still would purchase this as it does not become loose as described in this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxfwwtXhDz4

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits better than Nikon I had to order a new hood because the original Nikon hood that came with the lens (Nikon 24-300) fit so loosely that it fell off constantly with the slightest bump until it was soon lost. This new hood snaps/clicks on to seat very well and stays in place much better. And it's less expensive than original hood to boot!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better, and cheaper than Nikon A very nice lens hood, indeed. The little "trapdoor" to manipulate the Polarizer filter is a great idea. Pity Nikon doesn't have one. Much cheaper than Nikon hood too. Was pleasantly surprised that UPS didn't charge their (exorbitant) "Brokerage Fee" when it came over the Canada/US border.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the original hood! Fits perfectly on nikon 28-300mm VR. Same shape/size as the original just at much ower price with a great additional window to adjust Circular Polarizing filter, something that was really hard to accomplish with the original hood on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement lens hood The original hood got so it wouldn't stay on well. This one is pretty much the same product as the original Nikon, except for the door you can take off to more easily adjust the CPL or variable ND filter. That will be handy.
