Vello HB-32 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-32 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, and 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED lenses. 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-32 reviews

    HB-32 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats buying a Nikon hood It is inexpensive, comes well packaged, is lightweight, of good quality, and fits perfectly.Only downside to this hood, as with any hood that fits onto the lens body instead of the into the lens's filter thread, is that you cannot access the filter without removing the hood first.This is important, in part, if you use a rotating filter like a polarizer, or a graduated filter.Also, if you use a step up ring to facilitate use of a larger-diameter filter (say, 67mm to 72mm), you will not be able to remove the hood without first removing the filter.This isn't a defect of the hood, but rather an issue of lens design: The hood should snap into the filter threads on the front of the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT HOOD B&H Customer Service is very helpful. I wanted to get the Nikon Brand but customer service told me that this was cheaper and as good as the Nikon Brand. They were correct. I said to @ CAMERA customer service Why you all don't behave like B&H? In an angry tone she said to me Then take your business to B&H. B&H is the best.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well This hood works fine and is half the cost of the Nikon version. I would give it 5 stars but when stored on the lens reversed it has come loose a couple of times so doesn't seem to snug down as well as it might. I should mention that is seems to lock into place firmly in the use position forward.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove I bought this as a replacement for the 18-135mm Nikon lens I bought that did not come with a lens hood. Snaps right into place, slides on and off very easily, and isn't too tight a fit where it takes some elbow grease to turn, risking damage to the lens itself. Simple product, but perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential product I purchased this hood because I could not find an available Nikon version for a 18-140 lens I just got. I am a little bit concerned about how rugged this one may be compared to an equivalent Nikon hood and thus, how long it may last but so far no problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serves the Purpose Well Bought this to accompany a 18-140mm lens I bought without the hood. The price was right and compared to the Nikon version it seems to fit a bit tighter on the lens. For those few times you need a lens hood, it is a good addition to the kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I was disappointed that my Nikon 18-140 didn't come with a lens hood. I was also paranoid about my new glass bumping into something so this lens hood was added to my wish list. Works well, minds its own business and stays on nicely.
