Vello HB-7 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-7 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF 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 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-7 reviews

    HB-7 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good, and such a better price The HB-7 lens hood by vello works just as good as my other nikon lens hood. What sold me on it was its price. I'm always looking for a better deal when it comes to my equipment knowing I am going to have to upgrade every other year. The thing about this hood is that it protects from lens flare along with all the other problems you run into with a naked lens. But the best thing about it has to be that it can take a beating. VERY STURDY! If you are looking for something to save a few bucks I would say buy the Vello and save $ dollars and get the same use. The only thing you have to watch out for is making sure you twist it on right. It can be a little tricky at times.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hood OK I bought this because I dropped my camera bag, shattered the original and the Nikon replacement wasn't in stock. +'s The unit looks good on the lens and should provide the same protection that saved my lens last drop. It fits snug once you get it lined up. -'s The color and texture are not a PERFECT match but close enough that it will go unnoticed by everyone but Nikon experts. If you can live with a little inperfection, or a hood that says For Nikon instead of Nikon this will do the trick. The alignment doesn't twist on perfect, but once it's on it's snug and will work well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Say Vello to my little friend!! It's a good substitute for the Nikon version. It locks into place pretty well, though not quite as snappy as other lens hoods I have. That might be because of the older used Nikon 80-200 f2.8 that I purchased recently. All things considered, it's a lens hood that keeps out unwanted light and doesn't come off very easily. The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't store very well in the 80-200 case. You have to take it off of the lens and store it separately, or just put it in the case last. In my opinion this is a minor inconvinience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as the Nikon I bought this for use on my 80-200 f/2.8 AF lens (the push pull) and it fits perfectly. A friend has the Nikon version of this hood and while the outer finish matches the lens better, the Vello hood feels like its made of the same material. I would recommend is over the Nikon any day. Less expensive and it does the job.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Thrilled This is just an okay lens hood. It does not attach in reverse to allow for a quick switch when you are in a situation where you need a lens hood. Instead you have to pack it away everytime you are not using it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly Disappointed I would have rated it with five stars; the hood is very sturdy and will do its job just fine. The problem is that it did not fit the lens for which it is made. The inner diameter was too small. Rather than return it, I took the chance of very carefully burnishing the high spots with fine emery cloth until it did properly fit. So, in the end I'm pleased with the hood. I would recommend this hood only to those who are good with shop methods of adaptation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like it should The Vello hood fits and works like it should for the price. Working in extreme conditions every thing becomes brittle and will break with very little effort, not sure what Vello makes these hood out of but they don't break as easy as the Nikon hoods. Hoods offer a certain amount of drop protection even though the break at mounting points it breaks the fall. That's the reason I am replacing the old one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job! Not too much you can say about a lens hood. I didn't want to spring for the pricier Nikon one, I bought this one at the same time I bought the lens. Very durable. Only issues I have is that it can be hard to get on the lens (almost like it is a tad too small), and you can't reverse it for storage.
