    A solution that works!

    I chose this product because it was designed to pack flat and compact when not in use. Very handy for location shooting when you want to shoot tethered.

    Usage is simple, just remove from the bag and unfold and it "pops" to shape.

    I like that it packs small (footprint is slightly smaller than a typical 14' laptop

    What i don't like about it is that it requires practice to pack it flat. One worries if it would get damaged :)

    Overall it is still a good purchase.

    This thing works pretty well for what it is. It does a good job of shading the sun as long as it's not directly you. The hood fits pretty well onto a 17" macbook pro (all I tested it on), but it does block the very bottom of the screen (making it difficult to see your dock). I also found that on windy days it was difficult to get it to stay on the laptop (a little gaffers tape fixed that though). All in all, it's better than making your own out of boards and tape, but if it had a method to actually attach it to the laptop instead of just wedging the screen in between the sides, it would be better.

    Comments about Hoodman 13-17" Mac Laptop Hood:

    Helps quite a bit when shooting tethered in outdoor situations. In full sun (the toughest situation) I still need a piece of dark cloth draped over computer and my head to block out the rest of the stray light. Knocks down into a small, lightweight package. Kinda plasticy, but then it's pretty inexpensive as photo gear goes.

        I like the fact that it fits all three sizes of the macbook pro and is in
        such a compact package. It also allows easy access to the keyboard.

              This is probably one of the better hoods I have seen and used on the market.

              I have used it outdoors or when I don't want prying eyes looking at what I am doing and it allows the screen to be viewed in broad daylight. It serves it purpose and then some.

              The portability and ease of set up could not get any better. And the price is really affordable. It fits into any computer bag and weighs next to nothing.

              I have nothing bad to say about this product. Would recommend it highly to other Mac users.

                        You can't go with Hoodman. I shoot tethered outside and work outside, as the kids are playing in the pool, and the hood works great. Very small and compact to fold, just like a reflector. It stores right in the side pocket of any laptop bag or pro camera bag.

                            I use this hood when the light is too bright in the house to do Photoshop work. It seems to fit fairly well on my 13 inch Mac and allows the full use of the keyboard. I liked this unit so well that I bought one for my daughter who does video work in a variety of settings, including the beach. She will appreciate the ability to see the mac screen when doing live shooting. Also the hood will keep the sand off the screen at the beach. Folds up nicely.

                                        I use this for my 17" Mac Powerbook and it does shield the sunlight pretty well and was pleasantly surprised on how well it stayed in place with a windy day! It does sometimes seem to cover a bit more of the screen than I like but is worth it.

                                              Complicated to close. Small viewing area. Potential light leaks. Unappealing finish on materials. On the other hand, it's not terribly expensive.
