      I use this even during indoor shoots 'coz it gives me that much more accurate viewing (I use the XH-A1) without any distractions. I just wish it was a little bit shallower (or an option to make it shallow/deep). Overall, it is sturdy, tough, easy to fix unto, folds flat (goes nicely into my vest). I would recommend four corner straighteners though 'coz after folding, it does take some time to get that perfect square (or a light guiding frame that attaches would be nice).

      My only caution is not leave it in your trousers / pants for if it bends, it may be hard to undo it.

      Great concept but needs better sizing

      I bought this for my CX700V which has a 3" screen. Because this is designed to fit 2.5" to 3.0" screens it's a little small for the 3"...Read complete review

      I bought this for my CX700V which has a 3" screen. Because this is designed to fit 2.5" to 3.0" screens it's a little small for the 3" models. Because these are touchscreens it's very difficult to get it to fit without activating options on the touchscreen, especially while putting it on. They need one dedicated for each size screen. I would only recommend this if you have the smallest screen size for the model chosen. 2.5" for HD300 and 3.5" for HD400.

      Comments about Hoodman HD-300VIDEO Camcorder Hood:

      I'm using it on a 2.7 inch swing-out screen on a video camera.
      This little guy works because it uses elastic straps to wrap around the back of the screen. I suggest you buy a hood that's smaller than the screen so that you can still access controls surrounding the screen.
      (I wouldn't use this hood with a touch screen)

            From understanding the size of the screen I have 3" and the fit of this Hood just did not really work out. For screens of 3" they need a bigger hood size.

                I shoot high school football from the roof of press box's, even during night games it can be difficult to see you screen clearly due to position of the lights in the stadiums. And day games with the sun to your back it almost impossible to find the ball, this is a simple fix. I had made something similar years ago but now needed a new one; I have been using Hoodman products on many of my digital and film cameras so I was knowable with their quality. Simple to use, light weight, folds up and can be moved from one camera to another in seconds. Great for indoor use also as it can block most of the overhead reflection you see in the view finders.

                                Being a new cam owner, located this item online. Next size up was 4 inch. The HD-300 is described as spec for "2.5-3" screens. It really is too small for 3 inch screen, covers up part of the display. You really need a size in between specifically for 3".

                                  It blocks the light out quite effectively. Fits my Panasonic HMC40 2.7" LCD screen nicely. I can see the whole screen. The elastic band with the velcro tip hold the hood very securely to the screen.

                                  Of course you will NOT be able to easily use your "Touch Screen" menu with the Hood attached, which makes it much less useful, but it will shade the screen in bright sunlight, so........ it is a toss-up!

                                      I have the Hoodman 400 for my Panasonic and love it. Now with dslr's with flip out screen this is another great Hoodman. I use this one my Canon 60D.

                                        The Hoodman HD-300 Camcordrer Hood does what it says. It easily attaches to my Canon A1 camcorder with the velcro straps in the back. It stays in place and blocks direct sun from washing out your LCD screen. Stores quick when not in use. Great tool and a good value.
                                        I always have it handy when I take my camera outside.

                                          Purchased this product for my Sony camcorder. I had the older one (H300) but it was a bit too large. This one fits perfectly for me.

                                              I don't know what to say. I took my camcorder along with the HD-300Video hood on a cruise to the Bahamas. Lots of sun. Once place on the camcorder in bright sunlight I still couldn't see objects on the LCD screen any better then without the sun hood. In seven beautiful days I use it once and then left it in the camera bag for the remaining trip. Sorry this is the truth.
