Nikon HB-35 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.

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.

Nikon HB-35 reviews

HB-35 Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Also fits the new Nikon 16-80mm and is better for that lens When I got my Nikon 16-80mm lens it was beautiful except for one thing. The lens hood was huge and square, awkward and I did not like the look at all. The bulk when reversing the hood was bad too.I started trying the HB-63 hood from the FX 24-85mm and that was OK but the best was this one, the HB-35 for the 18-200mm lens. It does not vignette either! Nice combo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does What it Should I purchased this after losing my first. It pretty much stays on the lens for protection - always on in the daytime, so I have to say it works to reduce flare. How much? I don't know because I haven't tried to shoot without it in place when it's needed. I like the speed of the mount, which makes putting the camera away easy - twist, flip, twist is all that was added to that routine. Overall, well worth it for the peace of mind alone. The biggest downside is it will create shadows when using a flash, especially at a long zoom (even with an SB400). That's not a surprise - more of a lesson to pay attention. I also suppose an SB800 might help .... um, dear??.. honeybunch?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional, and (yes) easy to dislodge The shade clearly is well matched to the lens with which it comes. It is light weight. It clicks into place which gives the sense it is quite secure. I just lost my second one walking through gardens (so I would not have heard it drop as I have, occasionally, on urban pavement). I don't know that it's any worse than other such hoods (or lens caps) but I agree with those who say it's not that invincible to falling off with little provocation. Still, at a replacement cost of $12-15 per serious photo expedition, I guess that's a normal cost, eh? (I'm in Canada now, where I'm getting the eh from!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad show, Nikon! I use a lens hood every time I photograph. I'm a gentle worker with a light touch, but I've been through three of these flimsy contraptions. It does its job well enough until the bayonet breaks. The necessity of handling it carefully slows me down considerably. It's infuriating!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very necessary I have found that I cannot use this lens without the hood. It seems to me that there was something wrong with the hood that was originally packaged with the lens. It would come loose at the slightest bit of pressure, while the replacement has a much firmer fit. I had to replace the original because it got knocked off, then crushed under someone's foot. I noticed that under the Pros and Cons section, they list Durable and Flimsy, respectively. I just have to say that of the Nikon lens hoods I own, I find them neither durable nor flimsy, though I do wish they were more durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This item saved my 18-200mm Lens After taking some photos of a garden from my tripod at about 6 1/2 ft high, the unthinkable happened as I was putting things away. As I reached up to take my camera off the tripod, I accidently flipped the lever before grabbing my camera (yes I know, stupid!), anyway, it fell from about 6 1/2 feet straight down onto a Hard Desk! OMG, I was afraid to look, but I did. Thank goodness I had the Lens Hood on. It saved the rim of my lens and possible lens glass from denting or worse. All that happened was the backside of the Lens Hood where it screws onto the Lens cracked. I was no longer able to keep it screwed onto the lens. With an upcoming Photo Convention just around the corner, I knew i had to get another one ordered. This one product alone, saved me from having to replace or repair a $600 lens. I will not leave home without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Lens Hood saved my camera and lens! The HB-35 Lens Hood is just a great product! I had to replace mine recently because I dropped the camera. Actually the lens hood absorbed the impact and saved my 18-200mm lens and my D300s from being damaged. It was unfortunate to have to replace the hood but I am so glad I had it on the camera when it was dropped. B&H was fabulous as usual in getting me a replacement very easily and quickly! Kudos to B&H and Nikon for great service and products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon Quality As usual, this OEM Nikon lens hood stays on the lens as intended, as opposed to the aftermarket one which I saved ( wasted ) a few bucks on and fell off constantly.
