Nikon HN-CP17 overview

  • 1Description

The HN-CP17 Lens Hood from Nikon is a screw-mount lens hood compatible with the Nikon COOLPIX P7700 Digital Camera. Lens hoods act to deflect stray light from entering the lens and producing flare and ghosting. A screw-mount lens hood stays on securely and also adds a level of protection for the lens from accidental impact.

    Nikon HN-CP17 reviews

    HN-CP17 Lens Hood is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little extra for the P7700 First impression: just for protection of my lens. I was kinda wrong. It actually works quite nice to block some undesired sun light. I use it all the time now and it actually allows you to put a standar 58mm filter. Again, just a little extra protection for the lens, but with the advantage to put some extra ND filters (among the internal on the camera). It is nice to notice that it adds NO sensible weight to the camera and the only drawback I see is that it increases the size of the pocket size camera. It makes the camera feel a bit more fragile or suceptible to be broken inside the bag. Overall, highly recomendable for the Nikon P7700.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Add-On But Blocks Flash This adapter works great for adding 58mm filters to the camera with minimal increase to the camera thickness. This is useful for adding common filters for work outside. Inside, I don't see much use for it. The only downside is that it partially blocks the pop-up flash. When adding this to the camera, I suggest adding a UV filter and a 58mm lens cap to replace the 40.5mm stock one. The stock Nikon lens cap with a tether (NILC58 & SECKL) works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Fits and Does Its Job I screwed it into the 40.5mm UV filter and it prevents flare at all focal lengths. I wish the 40.5mm lens cap would fit wihin it, but the outer edge accommodates a 58mm lens cap, the same size as for the ends of the accessory tube. The depth is not too great to be an annoyance when camera is carried on strap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works and looks good Does what it is supposed to do. Only issue is standard p7700 lens cap is not useable with the lens hood on. Requires a 58mm cap that fits the outside diameter of the lens hood. I bought a 58mm Sensei center pinch cap from B&H for less than $4.00, and now it's perfect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit and versatile Received in a timely manner. Fits the P7700 lens easily and, as a bonus, also works well with my Nikon 1 V1. End of the hood is 58mm, so one could keep it on at all times as long as they have a 58mm lens cap. Which brings up the only drawback, which is that the stock lens cap needs to be removed in order for this to fit, and the lens cap does not fit inside the lens hood. That's the only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good enough, but... I bought this hood and a 40.5mm CPL filter and found them an awkward combination, especially when mounting and dismounting. I found a better use for the hood as an accessory mount for a 58mm CPL with a hood of its own, and just leave this hood on camera. Buy a 58mm lens cap. As I do not use the onboard flash I don't mind this hood blocking it, which it does. Otherwise I find the hood durable and nicely made.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work with lens cap on P7700 I love the hood, but sorta useless if you can't fit the lens cap on. The only way to put your cap back on is to unscrew the hood and find a place to stash it. I guess a larger cap that fit on the hood would solve the problem but one is not offered. Probably sending it back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protect that Lens The hood is always on the P7800, shades well, protects the lens, looks good, makes the camera non-packetable
