Tokina BH779 overview

  • 1Description

The Tokina BH779 Lens Hood fits the Tokina 16-50mm f/2.8 AT-X, 12-24mm f/4, and 12-28mm f/4 AT-X Pro DX / APS-C lenses, and is 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.

    Tokina BH779 reviews

    BH779 Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Required product, gets lost easily Very much required for the ATX-124 12-24mm Tokina F/4 lens which has lots of flare issues when shooting any direction vaguely resembling toward a light source. However, I have managed to already lose two of these hoods in the last few months because they have fallen off while hiking. The latest fell off 2 weeks after I received it! I've never had this issue occur with my Nikkor/Tamron hoods in over 8 years of DSLR photography. A few years from now, I think someone will stumble across a small pile of these hoods deep in a valley on Oahu. From now on, I'm spray painting the outside of this bright orange and attaching an elastic lanyard to it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stick with the original It's great to have this Tokina 12-24 lens hood again. The original fell off while shooting on a construction project and I never found it. As a result I had many problems dealing with glare and the lack of glass protection. Now I get much better photos with less glare, and more peace of mind with the protection it offers. I tried an aftermarket hood but it didn't work. B&H was the only place online I could find the original!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate but not the same quality Adequate but not the same quality as the ones I use with Nikon gold ring lenses. It sort-of locks on but can be dislodged so just watch it in crowds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy and not incredibly obtrusive This hood is very functional, and does a great job at shielding the lens against flares and stray light. It's a bit on the bulky side, but reverses on the lens when not in use. Although if you're not using it, you'll probably want to remove it entirely, because it blocks the zoom and focus rings when it's in the stowed configuration. This is a terrific item for outdoor shots in bright sunlight and studio work. Not super-portable but a great thing to have for this lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional I lost my lens hood during one of my shoots. This lens hood is very useful in reducing lens flare. I first bought a rubberized hood, but it did not work at wider angles. While expensive, this hood it is worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly Bought a used Tokina lens without the hood. Being an OEM part, this fits perfectly and works just as expected. Nice, solid, lightweight hood that stows well in reverse position (versus a generic aftermarket hood).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from replacement hood This replaced the hood that I dropped down a valley. I use it on my Tokina 12-24mm lens. It doesn't have the felt-type material that Canon hoods do, but it still shields the lens as designed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement Helps protect your lens from bumps and lenses flares. I had to change mine after my camera fell on the floor. The objective was not broken, nor the camera. Fortunatly I put my lens hood!
