Nikon HN-12 overview

  • 1Description

This screw-in lens hood was originally intended to be used only in combination with the original(and now discontinued) Nikon 52mm circular polarizer filter.  It will not fit on new type "II" circular polarizer filters, but it can be used with 60mm threaded polarizing filters in conjunction with the AF-1 52mm Gelatin Filter Holder for 3 x 3" Filters.  Simply screw your 60mm polarizer in front of the AF-1 filter holder, and then screw this hood into the front threads of the 60mm polarizer.

Nikon HN-12 reviews

HN-12 Two-Piece Lens Hood with 60mm Male Thread is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 60mm Filter Thread Not Standard This hood is intended for Nikon's Polarizer system. For that purpose it's use is excellent, 5 star but for use as a 60mm thread hood beware the threads have a different pitch than standard 60mm filters that fit Leica lenses. The hood will fit but will only turn slightly before binding, not really enough to hold in place unless secured with maybe some gaffers tape. The reason for the review is that B&H choose to list the thread size and it is not clear that the pitch doesn't conform with the normal pitch found on lenses/filters with 60mm threads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon HN-12 Lens Hood The Nikon HN-12 Lens Hood is one of its kind for the Vintage Polarizer both designed to work together. When these 2 items are mounted together on your lense, it's an impressive system that takes you back to the 80's designed by Nikon that I haven't seen as of this day from any other camera manufacturer. If you can get your hands on that Vintage Polarizer from Nikon, from the 80's of which I now own 2 you will know what I'm talking about. The Polarizer is beautifully made and the polarization is very impressive and I combined it with a Tiffen 812 filter to give you a very nice slight warm tone to your images. I shoot strictly manual in the same manner I did back in the Film era. Nikon back then some very impressive accessories for their lenses all metal no plastic. I am very happy to have those 2 items in my hands. Lorenzo!
