Vello HB-37 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-37 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 55-200mm f/4-5.6G VR DX and 85mm f/3.5G Micro ED VR 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 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-37 reviews

    HB-37 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens bump and light streak protection for the $. Tough to beat for the money on this hood, as well as the HB69 for my other lens...see HB69 review. For half the money of the oem, I would purchase these again. The HB-37 fits my AFS Nikkor 55-200. In the storage position (flipped around) it fits snugly and I'm comfortable that it won't fall off. When using the hood, it's seats with just a slight amount of play, but again, I don't feel like it will fall off at any point. I don't know why the petal style hood (like the HB69) wasn't available for this price point for this lens, but oh well. It does it's job and it's inexpensive and reliable. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good asNikon This product is as good as the Nikon hood only a lot less. It is the correct hood for the 55-200 VRII.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello HB-37 lens hood This hood does the job. It is great that it snaps on and off so easily with a squeeze. Keeps unwanted glare out of my pics while protecting my lens. No brainer, easy to use and keeps my lens safe...what else is there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality is priceless!! This hood works great! It's an easy on easy off hood that is there when you need it and off when you don't. At first I was concerned with the durability of the plastic but when I accidentally smacked it and my lens against something once it held up and protected the crystal in the lens. I would recommend this product to anyone. It's well worth every penny!!!
