      I shoot a lot of outdoor soccer games, in sun, rain, and snow. For the sunny days I find the Vello 3.5" LCD hood to be an excellent choice to shield the screen and improve LCD visibility.

      The design of the hood supports the touch screen functions of my Panasonic camera, with the sloped sides/shorter bottom. In comparison, a Hooodman LCD hood, with all four sides of the hood being the same depth, it makes it difficult to reach in to touch the screen.

      However, I find the Vello's 'flap' attachment system is not accommodating for the thickness of the AC90's monitor casing. Like another reviewer, I had to bend the top flap to extend its 'hinge' portion, and I also had to cut out the rectangular spongy foam section of the bottom flap (that lies against the back of the LCD monitor casing) to get a good fit. Goodbye 1 year warranty.

      I really like the look of the hood on my camera, it's dark, non-refletive material works well and looks very professional.

      This hood is better for reaching menu screen than the Hoodman, but doesn't shield sun as well. Would be better with more stretch to fit around screen thickness, but worked without modification. Since I rarely need to get to menus, I was quickly back to using my Hoodman for better sun shielding.

            I use the hood on my JVC video camera while shooting outside. It really helps to keep the sun off the LCD monitor while shooting.

              Comments about Vello 3.5" LCD Hood:

              I love this LCD hood because it's super easy to attach and dis-attach, it's velcro.

              I shoot a lot outdoors and it was annoying having to use one of my hands to cover the screen to see what I was shooting. Now I have both hands available to shoot.

              It's very light, so it doesn't add much weight when I use my Glidecam and that's also a plus.

                          It's a little too small for the LCD of the Panasonic AG-AC90 as the velcro isn't on all of the way. However it works just fine as is secure. Retail packaging is really nice and the craftsmanship is appreciated.

                              I use this sunshade on my Canon XA20 camcorder - it fits well and does the job. The tapered design allows access to the touchscreen, and you can quickly flatten the whole thing to fit in your camera bag.

                              Vello made the overlapping Velcro flaps thick and fairly rigid instead of pliable. To allow a snugger fit where they overlap, I softened the flaps up some by folding and flexing them.

                              I'm happy, good purchase.

                                  I have a Sony VG20, and the LCD panel is a bit big for this product, but it still attaches fine and does its job in the sun.

                                  I shoot a lot of outdoor soccer games, in sun, rain, and snow. For the sunny days I find the Vello 3.5" LCD hood to be an excellent choice to shield the screen and improve LCD visibility.

                                  The design of the hood supports the touch screen functions of my Panasonic camera, with the sloped sides/shorter bottom. In comparison, a Hooodman LCD hood, with all four sides of the hood being the same depth, it makes it difficult to reach in to touch the screen.

                                  However, I find the Vello's 'flap' attachment system is not accommodating for the thickness of the AC90's monitor casing. Like another reviewer, I had to bend the top flap to extend its 'hinge' portion, and I also had to cut out the rectangular spongy foam section of the bottom flap (that lies against the back of the LCD monitor casing) to get a good fit. Goodbye 1 year warranty.

                                  I really like the look of the hood on my camera, it's dark, non-refletive material works well and looks very professional.

                                      I was excited about using this on my Canon vixia HA10. I use the camera alot at the motocross track so the LED is always hard to see because of sunlight. Hoping this would cure the problem, unfortunatley it didn't work. Size is really tight, didn't block sun at all.

                                        This is the second one of these I have purchased. I have found them to be very important at blocking unwanted light. There is a second, equally important feature - it makes you look more professional. It is well made and well worth the purchase price. I highly recommend it.

                                              This is a beautiful leather-like, fine quality hood.

                                              It is too small for the new Sony PMW 100 xdcam camera. Even though Sony describes the monitor as 3.5, the PMW 100 monitor is larger plus the thickness doesn't allow the hood to wrap around it.

                                              I purchased a Hoodman with elastic straps that work perfectly!
