Nikon HB-18 overview

  • 1Description

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Nikon HB-18 reviews

HB-18 Bayonet Lens Hood is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I highly recommend this product and B&H Photo. I do a lot of nature photography here in northern Indiana and more recently in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, so I am confronted with glare off large bodies of water like Lake Superior one moment and streams of bright sunlight coming down through forest canopy in the next. This hood is designed for one of three lenses I regularly use, a Nikon AF 28-105 mm, 1:3.5-4.5 D. It works beautifully; good locking fit on the lens as well. I ordered this item by telephone on a Friday and it arrived at my home late Monday afternoon. Mike, the B&H rep I spoke with while placing my order, was very knowledgeable and very professional. I look forward to doing more business with B&H Photo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ridiculous hood design The hood works as well as one can expect a hood to work on a zoom lens, but, it angles out so much that you can't effectively store it on the lens. You wouldn't be able to fit the lens into any reasonable bag or storage accessory. Not only that, but, it looks ridiculous due to its highly angled design. It's great to have the protection a hood offers but, in this case, I make a rare choice to go without the hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nikon Hood Completes My Nikkor Lens Sometimes the most minor link in what is otherwise an expensive set of photo equipment can be a simple hood made for a specific lens, and that link can be a necessary part of good, and reliable image-making. I never use a lens without its hood, not just for shots into the sun but for all the ambient light that surrounds me, even indoors; and B&H has come up with a Nikon hood for a lens that I purchased used and is no longer a Nikkor product. I moved up from DX (a D200) to my D700 (also a recent B&H purchase) and so had to sell my great DX-only 16-85 VR Nikkor, and replace it with a 28-105 AF Nikkor, which with its new lens hood gives me my only zoom alternative to my otherwise prime lens collection. The Nikon hood does the job, mitigating and usually eliminating most possible glare issues and the hood bayonets conveniently on the 28-105 for storage in my working bag. I'm really happy that older-model lens hoods are so conveniently available for my older Nikkor lenses...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Protects the lens Original Nikon equipment and does protect the lens in both the sun shade position and reverse stored position. Works as advertised but if it were made of rubber would work better.
