Nikon HS-12 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 HS-12 reviews

HS-12 Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must need item. While most would offer many reasons why a lens hood is unnecessary for a 50mm lens, I'll give two solid reasons why you should have it. First for a 50mm f1.2 lens flare is a real problem and this hoods is specifically designed to reduce that. Second, this hood has already protected my lens from a knocks that would have damaged the unusual large front element. Besides, it fits well, is solid and looks all pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid enough to stop light. After I bought this lens hood, I got an email asking me to review it. Not sure what to say about a lens hood. It stops light, which is lovely, because that's what it's for. It also easily fits on the lens and remains connected until I take it off, so extra marks for that as well. It's solid metal and not squishy rubber, like some hoods, and that's also a nice feature for clumsy people like me who need to be physically prevented from getting crud on their nice bits of glass. A++ would buy again, and probably will when I do something forgetful and leave this somewhere or something.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works Lousy, deserves no star at all I bought this hood because I read so many good reviews. My hood has neither snapped on easy when it snaps on at all, nor screwed on easy which its not supposed to do any way.It doesn't stay on after it snaps on & when it does stay on its so loose & rattles.Focusing is impossible until its turned around then its so loose it falls off. Its by far the worst piece of nikon equipment I ever bought. I have many Nikkor lenses/hoods/caps this is the only one I've ever had terrible results with.The lock/release does absolutely nothing at all.Maybe B&H will refund or replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snaps on securely, does the job I use this on my Nikon 50mm f/1.2 AI-S. It snaps onto the front filter threads of the lens. If you're using a filter, it'll snap onto the forward most filter. Overall, it seems pretty secure once it's on. It's a bit finicky to get on and off - definitely not as easy as the bayonet style of the latest Canon/Nikon lenses. 4 stars for doing its job, secure, and well constructed. 77mm lens caps/filters can also be screwed into the front of the filter. It would've been 5 stars if the attach/detach mechanism was better designed - it is an old lens/lens hood I guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I got this Bought this to live on my f/1.2 MF Nikkor - Has a 77mm screw in front thread - A bonus for filters and or lens cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! This snap on hood fits its purpose. I thought being a snap on would allow it to come off easily but that has not been the case. It is a secure fit and I prefer it over the very pliable rubber hood previously used. Yes it is expensive for just being a lens hood but does the job well. And, it looks cooler on my lens than the rubber one! It would be 5 stars if it were less expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than expected! This lens hood is very well built, and feels rock solid once installed. Much better than your usual snap-in lens hood. Solid metal construction! The only problem I had, which looses it 1 star, is that it is very difficult to get your lens cap properly in place with the lens hood installed. It is a TIGHT fit, and certainly must be impossible for those with large fingers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Correct Hood for the 50mm F1.2 Nikko This sometimes hard to find hood is the right fit for the 50mm F1.2 Nikkor lens. The lens is fantastic. It is sharp (many say it is the sharpest Nikon normal) and built like a tank. It's nice to have the right hood for it.
