Delkin Pop-Up Shades are LCD screen protective covers, which double as glare guards. These sturdy, light-weight covers are easily installed (and removed), protect a digital camera's expensive LCD screen in the closed position, and pop up to provide easier viewing of the display in bright sunlight.

The Digital SLR Professional Shade is designed to attach to your camera using the existing eye piece and slots around your display. It easily snaps on and off, and features an optical clear glass to protect your camera's screen. The simple pop-up design allows for easy opening to block the glare. Buttons on the Professional shade are aligned with your camera, to reduce the wear and tear on delicate parts and components.

The hard plastic cover and optical grade glass protects the delicate LCD screen

      For years I have went without these things but in direct sunlight could never even use the LCD screen as I couldn't see it. I have used the plastic protective covers by themselves over all glass screens. This does the job of both items to protect screen & shade the LCD. The thing I like most is that you can remove the shade when not outside so as to get it out of the way. I do reccomend the eye-cup extenders sold for each camera so as to extend view without smashing nose into screen.

      This product was great for the first week of use, then the spring that keeps the the shade up broke out when I opened it. That cause the support to swing out and fall off. When I tried to reinstall it the peices that keep it inplace broke off. I thought I'd be ok with just the right side still intact, but I guess the added strain did that one in, because two days later the same thing happened on that side. It can still be used as a protector for the LCD, but the stick on LCD protectors (which are much cheaper) do the same. Do not buy this unless Delkin does some serious remanufacturing, or hope that you get a better example than I did.

      I have used these before on my other cameras and like how it keeps my face away from the view screen. If your feel confident on your settings you won't have to keep looking at the screen. I would recommend this product.

      Comments about Delkin Devices eFilm Digital SLR Pro Pop-Up Shade for Canon EOS 40D:

      Interfaces well with camera back. Pretty bulky, however, as it includes eyepiece and an extra layer of plastic that goes over the menu and other buttons.

      The shade works well. However, the main problem is that it is difficult to quickly open and close the shade. You have to push down on the top portion while simultaneously pulling down on the side portions. Better designed shades have the sides pull in automatically when you pull down the top.

      So when you are taking some test shots to get the exposure correct, or if the light changes, it can be a pain. Because of it's size, you can't shoot with the shade open.

                      I was actually surprised that the pop-up shade is actually removable to leave you with a nice LCD cover if you don't have the need at the time to have the pop-up shade. It does stick out a bit compared to having the LCD so be prepared to clean it if you have your pop-up shade off.

                        Yes, the pop-up shade is easily installed and removed. It opens easily, and closing is done with one hand. No fuzz. Using the viewfinder my nose and breath do not smudge the lcd screen when the shade is closed. Also it protects the screen against damage. Using UV-filters and hoods on precious lenses is mandatory. Protecting the screen on the camera... obviously I do!
                        Only drawback is when shooting at ground level. If I was a frog, I wouldn't mind viewing the shaded screen...

                            Item fits the camera well but I can see that over time it is going to come loose. With limited use I can already tell the fit is not as tight as it was new. The screen from the bright light works well but you have to open and close it all the time if you want to view your shot. I do like the protection that it give the LCD lens. The buttons line up well today but stay tuned......

                            This is a well-made unit which does exactly what you want it to do: shield the sun so you can see your LCD clearly in the daylight.

                            One problem: If you know you're going to be indoors, you really don't want the thing there--and it's hard to get on and off.

                            After having smashed an LCD screen once, I've gone to one of these with great success. I don't need to review every shot (either you know you've got it or you don't) but having the option to check every once in a while is great. This shade is totally removable, but still leaves a protective cover over the LCD, while giving you full time access to view the screen. OR, you can leave the shade on and pop it up as you need. Truly VERSATILE! The best design yet from Delkin! The only complaint I have is it took too long to make it to market after the 40D was released! An essentional accessory!

                              For years I have went without these things but in direct sunlight could never even use the LCD screen as I couldn't see it. I have used the plastic protective covers by themselves over all glass screens. This does the job of both items to protect screen & shade the LCD. The thing I like most is that you can remove the shade when not outside so as to get it out of the way. I do reccomend the eye-cup extenders sold for each camera so as to extend view without smashing nose into screen.

                              Cons:The lower end of it- is not well-fixed to the camera,therefore sometimes it shifts to the sides a bit,and you may experience trouble with pushing lower buttons on your camera...

                                This device fits great onto the back of the camera and provides the view I need in bright light conditions. One thing I really like is the fact that the shade comes off without taking off the entire device so, when I don't need it, I can remove it easily.
