"Shielding the Screen in Bright Sunlight"


Roseville, US
          

OK, I will admit that, along with the histogram, I do use the screen to check my shots. I recently was in an Iowa corn field on a really bright sunny day (I also know this is not the best time to shoot, but it couldn't be helped) taking pictures of the spot where Buddy Holly's plane went down. I literally could not see anything on the screen, even when I was in the "shade" of the corn. I am going on a trip to London and Paris soon and, again, may find myself in bright daylight situations (OK, maybe not in London). I have done a little research on the internet and come up with two names -- Delkin and Hoodman which make little popup screen shades. Waste of money ?? -- do they work??? Anyone had any experience with these? Thanks.

I cannot speak about the popup shades, but the Hoodman Loupe works well.

It appears that Hoodman has discontinued the popup shades.

I use the hoodman popup shades. I'm surprised they are discontinued. Delkin also makes them and B&H sells them.

Do you find that these get in the way when you view with the eye piece. Or do you need to take them one and off?

It's closed when looking through the viewfinder as it folds flat. It's only opened to view the LCD. I don't find that it gets in the way

If you were to buy it again would you. or would you do it a different way? How much did it cost?

They cost about $20. I've used a Hoodman not a Delkin on a D2H, D2Hs, D70, and D200.

When I bought a D80 the pop-up shade came with it. I used it for a short time as I had the experience with view cameras and know the value of it. But I found my own reflection to get in the way. Don't wear bright coloured shirts. The type that cover the entire screen and use a viewfinder type lens to look through are much better.
