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.

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.
