If you have the Canon EOS C100 and you don't wanna pay to much Money for a overpriced Viewfinder from a Company starting with the letter Z, than this is your Best and Cheapest Option. I wonder why there are not more Company's producing items for affordable Cameras for an affordable price. I mean nearly 10 Percent from the Price of a Camera for a Viewfinder? Come on!

Works fine but not very practical

I like it. Working outside this really helps, but It is not really practical if you have to take it of all the time as I sometimes rather do to use only the viewfinder...Read complete review

I like it. Working outside this really helps, but It is not really practical if you have to take it of all the time as I sometimes rather do to use only the viewfinder as an extra point of contact.
Anyway I rather have it as it is not expensive and helps a lot.

    Comments about Petrol Deca Mini Hood for Canon EOS C100:

    I had my C100 for a couple of weeks and than summer rolled around. After one shoot I knew I had to find an option, the sun makes the LCD unusable. Previously, I had used zucatio viewfinders and was very unimpressed. Than I saw this product. Great price and super functional! The hood is extremely easy to put onto the screen and does the job!

        Love this hood. It fits well, doesn't obstruct the screen. It cuts out the bright light of day, so I can see the screen. I now leave it on the camera most of the time, even inside.

          This hood fits great on the c100 and is super easy to assemble/disassemble. For the price, this will definitely help in sunny situations and also make your camera rig look more legit.

          A no-brainer purchase

          By ASChin

          from Washington DC

          Comments about Petrol Deca Mini Hood for Canon EOS C100:

          The Petrol C100 hood folds down into a thin, easily packable shape. It is light and easy to assemble. And it is inexpensive. The only downside I can think of is that it requires a slight bit of effort to slide the hood onto the LCD screen - but that also leads to a snug fit. Good job Petrol and thanks for keeping the price reasonable.

              This is a neat little sunhood; I work outdoors a lot and needed a sensible solution for shooting without an external monitor. This fit the bill perfectly. It's a little bit of a hassle folding it together but it is worth the space it saves when not in use (completely flat unfolded).

              Very difficult to put on the LCD screen. it provides general sun shade but it is not that great. it's the poor man version of sun hood for C100. One is better off getting Zacuto Viewfinder if money is not a problem.

                I am a Wedding cinematographer , Mostly Indian weddings, my shooting location changes at least 7 times on the wedding day. at least 3 sets of Hard daylight in it.
                I used this product on both my C100s and I love it.
                Light weight.
                Not in your way.
                Makes a perfect mach for the c100.
