lens hood

  • Excerpt: When I lost my lens hood in Europe while pointing the lens downward photographing the southern Portugal coastline, my lens hood sipped off and fell down the slope. The replacement has two large flanges and two smaller flanges.

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

Does the job

Scott the actor, B&H Photo
18 March 2014
  • 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
