Vello LHS-55II overview

  • 1Description

The Vello 55mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II) is designed to fit lenses with a 55mm filter thread. The hood is designed for use with internal focus type zoom lenses. When used with "full frame" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 20mm. With "APS-C" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 15mm. With wider lenses, especially on full frame cameras, some slight vignetting might occur.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage with the minimum amount of weight and hood area. In addition, the design of this hood allows it to be reversed and stored on the lens, when not in use. It is also designed to accept lens caps. 

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens, by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

    Vello LHS-55II reviews

    55mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works with Sony 50mm Macro Lens I have a Sony Alpha 50mm Macro Lens, which does not come with a Sony lens hood. This product works OK by clipping onto the 55mm lens filter threads, but it can't be reversed and stored over the lens like most other Sony Lens Hoods, so can be easily misplaced or lost. I end up putting it in my pocket. I'm not sure why the 50mm Macro lens did not come with a Sony Lens Hood, as the 100 mm Macro lens comes with one. Scott & Meta www.Macro-Photography-Lessons.com

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snap on Tulip Lens Hood Get it done I don't usually like these things, and prefer the screw on sort made by the manufacturer. In this case, buying an old Olympus OM lens and Zeiss (CY) lens to adapt, the lenses came without a shade. This one fills the bill and is quicker than the screw-on after market variety. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop and smell the tulips Just getting started semi-professional and just bought this for my Nikon 55mm lens. Love that it snaps on and is reversible for better fit in my bag. Easy to use so I don't have to spend time screwing it on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit Nikon AF-P 18-55mm VR lens I don't want to rate this poorly as it simply does not fit my lens; however which models DOES it fit? My Nikon AF-P 18-55mm VR lens has a 55mm filer size, yet this 55mm hood is not even close to fitting it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware ! ! ! Nice hood and I like that it stores on lens when reversed . . . BUT the 55mm lens cap can not be used to protect your lens with the hood in this storage position. SAD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected. I bought it for my Panasonic Lumix and it does what it's supposed to do for the price. It snaps on and off.
