Nikon Snap On Camera Lens Hood
Taking perfect pictures comes down to choosing the right equipment for the environment and the job in hand. A Nikon snap on camera lens hood is a very handy item to have in your kit if you're working with a Nikon camera .
The types of fastening for your Nikon lens hood vary, but snap on varieties are often considered to be convenient as they are quick and easy to attach to your camera. This can be beneficial if you're working in a fast paced setting and need to swap your gear to reduce glare and suit the surroundings at a moment's notice.
Round lens hoods
Round or circular snap on lens hoods work especially well with wide angle zoom lenses, reducing the amount of vignetting at the edge of the picture. They range in size and functionality, but typical products include the Nikon HS-12 Lens Hood (52mm Snap-On) for 50mm f/1.2, through to Vintage Nikon F snap on Nippon Kogaku 50mm F2 metal lens hood.
Petal lens hoods
Often lighter weight than their round counterparts, petal, tulip or flower lenses with a snap on attachment have most of the same benefits when it comes to reducing glare as round hoods.
