Vello HB-39 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-39 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR and 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G 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 "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. 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-39 reviews

    HB-39 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the price but not quite the same The Vello HB-39 lens hood is of similar quality to the Nikon HB-39 lens hood but the inner hood has a satin textured surface which is a little more reflective where the Nikon has a matte black surface painted surface. The Nikon HB-39 will be a bit more effective in some circumstances. The price of the Vello hood was less than half that of the original.DavePlease don't use your lens without a lens hood. My friend broke her hood. She asked me to take a photo and I scratched her lens in tight quarters, the first lens front element I've scratched since 1970. She didn't use a filter for protection either. The only time not to use this hood is if using a pop up flash at wide angle settings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally compatible with Nikon lens This Vello HB-39 lens hood replaces the original Nikon HB-39 that got damaged in the field. It fits perfectly and is very well made, even though the Vello is half the price of the Nikon part. Also, the Nikon part was backordered, and I'm glad the Vello was available. If I need to replace a lens hood or other part, in the future I will seek the Vello product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens Accessory This item really needs no explanation. It cuts out glare and other annoying refracted objects from your dearest pictures, minimizes the amount of adjusting on Photo Shop for such things as glare and over-exposure. A completely functional accessory to your lens and contributes to the quality of your photos.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it. Bought this figuring it would be the same as original, but after a few months use it won't stay snug to lens. It must have fallen off at least a half dozen times so far. I guess if you lose it at least you only paid half the amount that the Nikon one cost. Probably going to order Nikon one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from identical to the original I bought this hood as a replacement for my 16-85 lens because I didn't like the idea of spending $30 for a Nikon-branded one. As far as I can tell the Pearstone is exactly like the Nikon I lost for a whole lot less cash. I won't feel nearly as bad if I lose this $ replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save Your Money & Buy This Hood Bought this hood when I broke the Nikon hood that came with the lens. In design,it seems to be virtually identical to its predecessor. It securely attached to the lens and works flawlessly. At 1/3rd the price of the Nikon hood, this is a great deal which I highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy with confidence Before buying this product, I was a bit skeptical how it would compare to Nikon's HB-39 hood. However, after receiving it, I have been very pleasantly surprised to find there is no difference between the Pearstone and Nikon hood. Buy with confidence and save yourself $.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from flimsy This lens hood is ok - it's well made and fits my Nikon lens perfectly. However, it is flimsy. I use the lens hood to primarily protect my lens. I'm not comfortable using this as protection for my lens. I should have ordered the Nikon version.
