      Comments about Atomos Sunhood for Ninja 1 & 2 Recorders:

      I guess you could say this works perfectly fine as a sun hood but it almost doesn't seem compatible with our Ninja2. The sides of the hood cover up the power button and the HDMI input. For a product that prides itself on having a simple to use UI, those simple functions need to be easily accessible. You would think this was produced by someone other than Atomos. It's functional but you shouldn't have to workaround your sunshade, it should just work.

      Functional but annoying

      By Jsharpphoto

      from Texas

      Comments about Atomos Sunhood for Ninja 1 & 2 Recorders:

      It does its job. It blocks out sun. It's pretty pricy for what it does, but the construction quality seems good. The most frustrating part is how it mounts. Screwing into both the top and bottom mount is a pain. Because that means to add or remove it, you have to remove it from the articulated arm holding it. Annoying. I would either just leave it on all the time.

        Works to block out overhead sunlight. I like the build quality and the screws that hold it in place also have screw holes built in so you don't lose any functionality. You can still attach articulating arms and other accessories.

          Comments about Atomos Sunhood for Ninja 1 & 2 Recorders:

          I use this product to get a bit of shade for my Ninja 2's monitor while doing filming out in the field on my C100 (using the Ninja to meet broadcast 50mbps specs). Its very helpful while filming in sunlight as the Ninja's screen is hard/impossible to see in direct sunlight.

          Its a pretty simple design. I wish that they would of left the Atomos branding off so that it was a bit more discreet.

          The sun hood has part of the sides cut out so that it doesn't interfere with the inputs, drive slot and power button. This is a a great feature, but I wish they would have made the dye cuts uniform so that the sun hood could be used when the Ninja is mounted upside down. (The Ninja allows for the screen to be flipped in the internal menus to allow for multiple mounting configurations). With these cuts you cannot have the Ninja mounted upside down and use the sunhood properly.

          Perhaps Atomos could just throw one of these in when you buy one of their products. I can't imagine it cost more then $5-10 to produce.

          Overall? Buy it. It helps. Wish Atomos would develop a loupe for their recorders though...

            The 2 screws to attach the shade are nice and can still be used in conjunction with a ball head [example: Manfrotto 492LCD Micro Ball Head] as they are tapped.

            The only complaint is that it is difficult to get my HDMI connector to plug in with the hood attached, as it can get in the way. You might have to buy cables that have a thinner head in order to be able to plug them in with the hood attached.
