Vello HB-29 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-29 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 70-200mm f/2.8 G-AFS lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you 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. The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements

    Vello HB-29 reviews

    HB-29 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Replacement! I was devastated when I fell and broke the lens hood on my 70 -200mm Nikon lens, but to my great relief B & H offered both the OEM version as well as an after market lens as replacements. The latter being around 50% of the OEM price (and the one that I ordered). ... Amazingly, the lens hood was a perfect replacement in the fit, the look, and the quality. The LHN-HB29 Lens Hood is a great buy and at half the price as the OEM you can't beat it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice lens hood!!! This thing fits like a glove, is PERFECT for the 70-200 nikon vr1. I would definitely purchase this again if it should break, which I do not anticipate happening, because it is so nice. I also have the Vello battery base on my d7100 which works flaulessly. I am very pleased with each Vello product I purchase. And B&H's suggestion of purchasing these products is always valuable input. They have the items in front of them and they know what is a great product and have always directed me to the best items. B&H is the best for all your photo item purchases!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stick with Name Brand Thought I would save a few bucks and get the generic version of this hood. It is hard to clip on and off and for the diff,

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not fit properly This Vello HB-29 lens hood is not a good replacement for the original Nikon hood for my 70-200 2.8 VR lens. It seems to be mismatched with the grooves on the lens. It is very difficult to get on straight and very difficult to remove once it is on. I would return it but for the price I paid for this hood I decided not to return it when I found out that B&H easy return policy says that the customer must pay the return shipping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job! After reading some reviews someone said that this would fit the Nikon 20-200mm. It does not! I got it to fit but upside down and it is very hard to do! Being upside down it cannot drain water in the rain. I really need to replace it but the stock one that Nikon makes is too short for the late afternoon shots toward the sun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Like The Original Lost my original Nikon hood during a night shoot and so I found myself in need of a replacement. I bought the Pearson brand after seeing the price difference between the original Nikon branded product the one by Pearson and I'm glad I gave it shot. Can't tell the difference between the two except for how it's labeled.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from There is nothing like the real thing I was appalled at the idea of paying $50 to replace my lens hood and after reading the reviews decided to go with the off brand at a third the price. I got it, it works, but it was a real bear to get on the first time and really doesn't compare. If I had it to do over again I would buy the Nikon version.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good for the price My Nikon hood broke and would not stay in place reliably. After checking the price for a new Nikon replacement, I decided to try the Pearlstone.... fit the lens well. Although it's a wee bit loose, it stays on when I want it to. I'm happy,
