      I use this product to shade the LCD display as I film my son's football games. The hood is easy to use and does the job nicely.B&H shipped my order in hours and I received it in a few short days.

        Very good product and must have if you video outdoors. We can actually see the screen now with trying to block sun with hand. Very good little piece of equipment and definitely worth the small price!!

        Comments about Vello 2.7" LCD Hood:

        While it's a nice hood, and fit the 2.7" LCD on my Canon XHA1 (yeah, I know: who still uses that camera?; but it's a great camera with incredible glass), it didn't fit very well. But there isn't a hood that does, so I it was worth the few bucks I paid for it. However, because the XHA1 swings out on an arm that is bigger than the LCD itself, I had to cut the single large velcro strap in the back and remove the bulky material sewed into it. It fits okay now and will stay on and will keep the sun glare off it.

          Comments about Vello 2.7" LCD Hood:

          The whole point is being able to see your LCD viewfinder in the sunshine. It helps a lot. The only peeves are that it slides around a little and it makes it a little harder to touch things on the touch screen. Those are not really even issues though. Depending on how curved the back of your LCD is, you may also need to bend the velcro back flaps slightly to get them sticking together well. Also, not much of an issue. It works and looks nice.

          This gadget just fits right over the Lcd screen and cuts down glare from the sun or elsewhere. So far, it has worked well.I use it with a camcorder.

                  Comments about Vello 2.7" LCD Hood:

                  We shoot Out Door video almost exclusively. Being in the wild, we have switched to smaller HD camcorders ,they give great results and are less expensive . Of course shooting out doors creats a problem with brightness on the small LCD screen making it almost impossible to see what you are shooting. Since purchasing this 2.7" hood that problem is now almost non existant. Thank you for making such a quality product.

                  The hood fits on the screen with a velcro back that comes together and holds in place. There is one draw back to it. When you turn the screen around for standups , the side of the hood shows up in the side of the shot.

                  Comments about Vello 2.7" LCD Hood:

                  I purchased three of these well-constructed little hoods specifically for a wedding ceremony I was scheduled to shoot on August 11th at Disneyland Hotel's, Rose Court Garden. It was a bright, sunny day and temperatures were expected to hit 92 degrees. Two of the hoods were the 2.7" type, which I bought for my high def Sony cams. The other was the 3.5" version, purchased for my high def Canon. They were very well made, lightweight, and super quick and easy to attach to the cameras. The two Sonys held down fixed positions either side of the gazebo and captured closeups of the wedding vows, etc. Both were in the sun, as it was later in the day, and I roamed with my Canon... so I was in and out of the sun with it. Without these little hoods we would have had a very difficult time seeing what we were shooting on the view screens. These great little LCD Hoods allowed us to concentrate on what was important, a one-time opportunity at capturing a lasting memory for the bride & groom, and their families. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. These hoods did exactly what I needed them to do, and they helped me to do a better job at what I do! I highly recommend them!
