Vello HB-31 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-31 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 17-55mm f/2.8G 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-31 reviews

    HB-31 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Quite The Real Deal This is the second time I've replaced the lens hood on my 17-55, since the Nikon one is really flimsy. The first time I replaced it with the standard Nikon lens hood, the second time I purchased the Pearlstone one. This hood appears to be at least as sturdy as the Nikon one, and is less than half the cost. It doesn't have quite the same feel to it though -- it doesn't snap into place with quite the same confidence, and it lacks dots to indicate alignment, so the result is that I have to spend slightly longer fussing with it to make sure it's securely attached. The real lens hood costs way too much, so this is still a reasonable purchase decision, but I wish it behaved a bit more like the real deal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from surprizingly good I fully expected this to be an inferior product, and I would have ordered the official Nikon one if it was still available, But to my surprise, this one seems to be as full featured, and functional as the original one it is replacing, and yes, I can tell it is not made of as heavy or durable material, it is perfectly fine for a lens hood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is almost like the real thing! I am very satisfied with this lens hood. I broke mine, which was an original nikon lens hood and I mistakenly ordered this lens hood from B and H. But when it arrived, it never disappointed me. Except for the label, it is almost similar to the original. It fit the lens very nicely. And it worked perfectly fine too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great build quality Some scratches were present inside the hood when it arrived, but of course, does not affect its functionality at all. Box was damaged, item in good shape though. Feels like a strong plastic but fragile at the same time compared to OG hood. -Does not *click* on... it just slides into place.
    Date published: 2011-09-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for the OEM hood. Well constructed, fits like a glove on my 17-55mm lens. Other reviews said it will not click into place when reversed for carrying. I found this to be true, in short, doesn't fit backwards. Forwards it works more securely than the Nikon hood.
    Date published: 2016-10-14
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bigger than I thought Works well and does what I want - but I give it 3/5 because it is so large that it doesn't snug to the lens body when inverted so it makes fitting it my bag a chore. Excellent when attached facing outwards though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens hood Works very well and is much less expensive than the Nikon brand hood. Bayonets on and can be stored backwards over the lense with the lens cap on. Would definitely recommend.
