Vello HN-3 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HN-3 Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On) is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 35mm f/1.4 AI-S, 35mm f/2/2.8, 55mm f/2.8/3.5 Micro, and 35-80mm 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-3 reviews

    HN-3 Dedicated Lens Hood (52mm Screw-On) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this one! I debated on getting the double the price Nikon version but it just seemed to cost too much for what it is. This one works perfectly and I couldn't imagine the Nikon version being any better. It's just machined aluminum. You can screw it on to the front threads of the lens or a filter and it also accepts the lens cap from your lens. Very happy I got this one and saved money. You basically get two of these for the price of one Nikon version, which is what I did. If you don't like that it's not a Nikon product than it may help that it does have the word Nikon on it. Get this one, you won't regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job This good quality srew-on hood fits easily and securely on my Nikon 35mm f2 lens, allowing enough room to easy take the cap on or off with the hood in place.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adds coverage Build quality seems fine. Screws on fine. Does what it is supposed to do. Doesn't feel Zeiss quality, but it's durable enough.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesnt Have Ridges for 72mm Snap In Lens Cap Seating I tried to use this as a lens hood for my Nikon M 300mm large format lenses. The inside is smooth, it does not have the internal light baffle ridges that allow one to seat a 72mm lens cap, it just keep popping back out because the internal surface is smooth, not corrugated like on the Nikon. So now I am just going to buy the Nikon HN-3 which DOES have the ridges and works excellent with their 72mm cap. This really needs to be used with a lens cap. BTW

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So so Bought two of these and on one of them, the filter threads weren't built in long enough that it would not sit tight against the lens with a filter between it. It would just sit and spin. The inside has no ribbing to really help reduce glare. It's solidly built from good metal, but a little too wide that it makes it kind of bulky to use as protection as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Equivalent Quality No surprises here. Virtually just like the Nikon version. I use this on my Zeiss 32mm Touit lens, mounted on my Fujifilm X-T1. Screwed into the lens' UV filter it provides extra protection for the front of the lens with a minimal amount of shading, a center pinch lens cap is easy put on and removeand it looks cool too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as it should I debated about buying the name brand lens HN-3 hood but took a chance at this cheaper model. Glad that I did as it works perfectly well. It screws into the lens properly, stays on, is well made of a durable metal and does not interfere with the images captured by the Nikon 35mm f/2D lens.
