Nikon HB-50 Lens Hood by Nikon

tcWendel, Adorama
22 July 2014
  • Excerpt: As has been commented before, this sole alternative from Nikon is very much lacking. This purchase was for a slightly used Nikon original part, however, it has the same features as a new one. The hood is just too flimsy (very light plastic) and comes off too easily from the lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Design

flimsy

Adorama
8 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Does the job of shading the lens. Sadly, it falls off easily and the plastic breaks with a short drop (less than a foot) that does nothing to the lens or camera (D7000). I am sure Nikon can do better.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Design

  • Excerpt: Bought this as a replacement to the one that came with the lens. That's the only reason I don't give it five stars -- I just wish it were more durable. I've shot with the lens hood on all my shots with the lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight
