Vello HN-2 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HN-2 Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On) is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 28mm f/2.8, 28mm f/2.8 D AF, 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5, and 24-70mm f/3.5-5.6 IX 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.

This is a metal hood with anti-reflective ridges on its interior.

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 HN-2 reviews

    HN-2 Dedicated Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent but not perfect The hood is small just like the lens it is made for, and works fine when put on. However, the lens cover can not be put on when the hood is on. I like to cover the lens when I'm not shooting to keep my lens clean of whatever may be attacking my lens. Like the spray of the ocean or just dust/lint in the air. It screws on nice and can come in handy. I did just use it for a time-lapse photograph session, and my lens is open for a while taking pictures, and I'm sure it was helping block glare from the sun. The fact I can't clamp on a lens cover when the hood is on is a big deal for me so I have it at 3 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's meant to do I use this hood on the Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AI-S lens. It does what it's meant to do, i.e. protect the front element (I don't like to use UV filters for this purpose) and keep flare out (not that this lens any major issues with flare).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello Lens Hood made for Nikon Well made after market item...more for protecting the front lens element as I do not use a protective filter unless I need to do so. Thanks B&H for being a trusted server for the photo professional/ enthusiast.
