Nikon HB-32 overview

  • 1Description

The HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses from Nikon is a petal-type bayonet mount lens hood for select Nikon wide-angle zoom lenses.

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.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

AF-S NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED

    Nikon HB-32 reviews

    HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 203.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon HB-32 Lens Hood There is much debate over the actual functionality of the Lens Hood beyond that of protecting the lens from bumps and falls. It has proved it's usefulness in protection not long ago when I dropped my camera bag, the hood broke to pieces and the lens was spared. However, the real purpose of the Lens hood has also proved true. When you are shooting in the bright daylight there tends to be a little thing called Lens Flare. I shot without my hood and was surprised at how apparent it was. I have heard people say that you can move around to avoid it, but I'd rather have the hood as an extra precaution. At only $ and some change for shipping, it would be ludicras to shoot with out it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HB-32 Lens Hood by Nikon I have the Nikon 18-70 lens and the HB-32 lens hood and I have had continual difficulty putting the hood on straight and when it stores in the inverted position over the lens it fits loosely. Due to the difficulty installing the hood for use, it frequently causes vignetting in the corners if you aren't checking the viewfinder closely and has also recently caused a large dark area in the bottom center of the photos. I just returned from a trip to Paris where I finally had to just not use the hood to prevent these problems.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly touchy Although very usefull when hooting outdoors, I have neededto order a second one simply because of the bayonet system-the plastic tabs which hold it in place can break off. I hadused my previous one for about 3 years before it broke.However it was my own fault it broke in that when youconstantly take it on an off (for storage or what have you)you run the risk of not placing it on fully before twistingto engage the locking plastic tabs. Well mine broke- somostly my fault, however material could be a bit more robust. Problems Encountered: Broken plastic tab Previous Equivalent Items Owned: HB-32

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had bought it first Assuming erroneously that a genuine Nikon HB-32 was expensive, I bought an aftermarket knock-off. It was too tight and didn't line up properly when seated. For a few bucks more, I got the Nikon. It fits with a nice click and lines up perfectly. It also reverses and fits over the zoom ring, which still provides enough surface to zoom the lens. When attached in the reverse position, the hood is not as tight, so snug it down a bit and be careful not to lose it. Service from B&H was stellar, as usual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens Hoods are a must Lens hoods not only protect the lens against flare, which helps make better contrast in the image, also protect the front element against rain and dust. If you own a 18-70 or 18-135, don't even think about, just get it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One reason to use the HB-32 lens hood on your Nikon I needed to replace my lens hood because it broke when I tripped (clumsy ox) on a recent trip to Nova Scotia. When I tripped the Nikon camera neck strap allowed the lens hood to hit on the sidewalk preventing the lens from direct impact. Had I messed up the lens I think I might have gone crazy or at least tried to blame my dear wife!! Best $11.95 I ever spent. Expertise: Advanced amateur Problems Encountered: None! Hood takes a little getting used to to install properly but works great once you learn. Also a gentleman at the airport showed me how to install the hood backwards on the lens when it is not wanted. This might be in the owners manual but if it is I missed it! Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Nikon lens hood for film camera

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right item! I'm currently shooting with a Nikon D7100. It came as a package with two lenses. One lens came with a lens-hood and the other a Nikkor 18-140mm did not. I'm a little clumsy and tend to accidentally bang my lens. This lens-hood does a great job protecting the end of the lens and helping to keep side glare out of my shots. It's well worth the money. It's a reasonably priced solution to both problems: side glare reduction and lens protection. Great item.....highly recommended. Thanks again B & H for everything. I will be back for more gear soon!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nikon HB-32 lens hood This is the third one I have to replace as it is difficult to attach and easy to fall off. I haven't looked at the others, but i would like to know where nikon had them made. Product is not what I would expect from nikon. Maybe I am spoiled because I have had leica cameras before I went digital. The last one fell off today while I attended the French Quarter festival and apparently bumped into someone. Thanks for your time. Problems Encountered: See above Previous Equivalent Items Owned: Leica lens hoods Items I Recommend: nothing
