Vello HN-23 Overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HN-23 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 85mm f/1.8 AF (original), 85mm f/1.8 D AF and 80-200mm f/4 AI-S 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 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 HN-23 Reviews

    HN-23 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got this for my Fuijifilm 56mm F/1.2 I bought this on a suggestion from another photographer. The thinking was to have a more solid hood that screws on solidly versus the standard plastic twist and lock hood. It certainly does that just fine being made out of metal and it doesn't interfere with the operation of the lens or cause any vignetting. The only problem is it does take up more space in the camera bag as I don't want to continually unscrew it and put it back on out of fear of damaging the lens threads. I'll probably reserve it for event photography when I will leave that lens on my camera

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice to replace Nikon hood! Works perfectly on my Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF-D lens. All metal construction and beautifully finished. I don't see any difference from the Nikon hood except cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Weight and fits in Lens bag Great lens cover..don't have to worry about it coming off.. Far as worried about Damaging threads.. too easy put a filter on the lens low cost insurance for damage.. Get a Tamrac medium bag and you can leave the filter screwed on and pull it out for quick change of lens.
