    No longer is glare and unwanted distracting reflections a problem.
    Hats off to a small designer and manufacturer for improving the use of many cameras both still and motion)
    Well worth your money!!!

    i have a Hoodman hood for my Panasonic 160 but it's too big for the 3.0" screen i have on the 70D.

    i can't help but to compare the two and 2 things are disgustingly different in favor of the Hoodman.

    1. the Vello doesn't fold. at all. very annoying to store in the bag. the Hoodman folds flat and i can put it in my pocket.

    2. the Trapeze design of the Vello is not as effective as the full rectangle of the Hoodman.
    the Vello gives you a wider viewing angle but doesn't block the light as good because of the shape.

    all in all, if Hoodman had something the size of the 70D, i'd go for it.

    Comments about Vello 3.0" LCD Hood:

    This little gem is like a bill on a hat for my LCD screen. Now I don't have to try to find some sort of makeshift device to shade my view screen in order to even see what I am about to shoot. It's very light weight, simple to install, and functions as described. The only negative I have with it is that it does take a bit of time to afix to the screen properly.

        I do a lot of outdoor filming at my kids' sporting events. It is a huge improvement in dealing with sun issues on the LCD. The only small problem is that it is awkward to pack in my camera case. I velcro it around my camera case strap and hope it doesn't fall off.

            I've had one other hood that was cheap and really didn't do the job at blocking the light on my camera's monitor screen. This was well designed and does what it is supposed to do. Construction is quality and appears to be universal in that it will fit many different models of cameras.

              Comments about Vello 3.0" LCD Hood:

              For shooting in daylight with a Canon T3i, some kind of lens hood is a must-- this is the cheapest I found and it does the job well enough. It's not as nice as the Petrol mini hood we use on the C100s, but the viewfinder here is not as substantial, so it can't take as much.My only complaint is that the hood does not velcro shut cleanly because of the thickness of the flip-out screen on the camera. It holds tightly, but rather than closing flat, the top flap sticks out at an angle. Oh well. What matters is that I can see in the daytime for the price of a chicken tikka and garlic naan.

                I first thought this was not going to fit, but it works great. I wish it would fold flat, but it lets me see the LCD screen in the sunniest of conditions. For the cost, it is a great value.

                    Good leather, fits almost perfectly on my T3i's screen - just a little bit of play, but given that it's velcro, I can't really complain about that. I brought it out into the sun the other day for some underslung handheld shots and never lost the LCD in the light, and just yesterday, I was shooting indoors and had a light pointed directly under it and it still kept the light out. The price is a little much for what seems to be such a simple product, but I wouldn't call that such a negative given the price of other products.

                          Unfortunately the flip-out screen must be flipped out in order to use.

                              Workmanship otherwise seemed fine, but the tabs on the top and bottom at the back didn't extend out far enough from the screen before turning upward or downward. As a result, the Velcro hooks were just hanging onto the loops by a few rows and was not as secure as I thought it ought to be. Last point, it didn't help the situation much ... trying to see the LCD screen in bright daylight was still like looking into a mirror ... could not see what I was recording.

                              To allow viewing of the view screen. Although the fit could be better and it would be nice if when not in use it would fold flat for storage.

                                      I'm using this with my Sony HDR-CX580v and Canon Rebel T3i. Obviously, this really helps when you're in sunny conditions. The price is awesome.

                                      It works OK but is designed for a flip out monitor that is a little thinner than the one on a Sony NX30. It works but the back does not close all the way. I do like that it is cut away on the bottom which allows access to the touch controls.

                                            While it may be tempting to jerry-rig a screen hood from scraps, especially when you're on a budget, this simple yet efficient design works very well and at this price is a no-brainer.The important thing is to measure your viewing screen accurately, so you know the hood you order will be a good fit. I'm using this with a DSLR and so far, so good...

                                            I use a camcorder to shoot short films and since my camera only has an LCD screen I needed a hood for exterior filming. While the hood doesn't fit perfectly around the screen, (since this is a general size) it does help.
