Useless

Couldn't figure out how to attach it. I went online and nobody else seem to be able to either.

Perfect for outdoors

Takes a minute to learn how to put onto the monitor, but absolutely what I needed to shoot in the bright sun.

Another bad design comment...

This is the 3rd one Ive bought in the last 12 months. They do snap easily if youre not careful. Even once Youve mastered clipping on and taking off, there must be a fair bit of strain at the attachment points because I had cracks appear at 3 of the corners last time before one failed completely. From a business perspective... its genius. Breaks fairly often so you have to purchase a new one. Its raised the cost of my 501 from $1200 AUD to $1500 AUD. If youre yet to purchase the monitor, consider this as it is not a bright monitor so you must use a sun hood, and there are some better solutions out there right now.

Broke on the first use

I love the monitor. This sunshade is a joke--especially at a price-point of $60. The brackets start tearing almost instantly and the sunshade becomes worthless. If I had paid 9.99 or something, I'd say--welp you get what you pay for. But at $60--there's most certainly a more durable option for brackets. Don't waste your money.

The Wrong Hood

First of all the SmallHD 501 monitor is wonderful, wish I could say the same thing for the monitor. The company should definitely go back to the drawing board for this hood. Maybe a better replacement perhaps?

Great until it breaks

Nice, lightweight solution. Just too lightweight in some critical points.

A slap in the face to SmallHD owners

By Andrew

I have gone through three of these hoods. The last one made it through one scene before snapping after a light bump against a door frame. It has broken while taking off/putting on, in my bag during transport, and while on the monitor. I can't believe I bought this more than once. Total waste of money.

Don't monkey handle it folks!

It works great for me. It's light, folds up nice and tight in my bag and its very effective! As far as breakage is concerned, follow the direction and not force it. Put the back part first. The neoprene like material needs to stretch out a bit which makes it bit trickier but once you find out how, it is a good design.

Asked by: CHRIS
Yes. The SmallHD Sun Hood for 500 Series Monitors would work with a 503. The hood works with the entire 500 series. The monitor has elastic.

question

Is there another sun hood for the 500 monitors that doesn't break like most of the reviews say?
Asked by: Arthur
i don't know of another. and if there was an aftermarket i doubt it would have the fit and finish of this one. Watch the video of how to attach and deattach this sun hood. I did and i don't have any problem. Brain over brawn don't force it.
