      Comments about Petrol PA1007 Mini Hood:

      After trying to view the screen in bright sunlight on an outdoor shoot I was ready to trade my no-viewfinder camera in for a much more expensive model that has a viewfinder.
      Just before doing so a person really up on equipment showed me an available mini hood, and after borrowing it for a weekend I could see that it was the answer! I immediately ordered one and have been using it on every outdoor shoot since.
      While not a perfect solution as it takes some adjustment to keep it in place, it sure beats spending hundreds more to get a viewfinder camera.

        Comments about Petrol PA1007 Mini Hood:

        Normally I would only use the eyepiece viewfinder outdoors, but with an on-screen histogram, an LCD shade becomes more useful.

        I like the fact that this shade does not mount with Velcro and that it includes an 'extension hood'.

        On the downside, it's a little slow to slip on and I wish the 'extension' hood was integrated instead of a separate piece.

        I received this as part of a bundle with the Sony Z5U, which is strange since the hood model 1007 is not sized for the 16:9 LCD - it's made for a 4:3 format like on a PD-170. What should have been in the bundle is the model 1009. Well, maybe they can't sell the old style anymore and that's why they're giving them away.
