Vello SPWS-XT2 Overview

The Umbra Screen Protector with LCD Shade for Select Fujifilm Cameras from Vello is an ultrathin multi-layered optical glass that statically attaches to the camera's LCD screen and is rated 9H Mohs, which is resistant to breaks and scratches. The crystal-clear glass allows 98% of light transmission, and a nanocoating prevents fingerprints and smudges from appearing on the surface. Because there is no adhesive involved, removal of the glass is residue-free and no cleaning is necessary.

The included pop-up LCD shade magnetically attaches to the screen's metallic border and reduces glare and reflections, which would normally make it difficult to see.

Note:
The Umbra provides between 95 to 100% viewing area on the camera's LCD screen, depending on specific camera model.

Magnets could be stronger

Works well though.

Simple to use, and useful!

From the description I wasn't clear on how the magnetic holding system worked, but now that I have this on the X-T2 I must say it is most useful. Basically, the protective glass+frame component is adhered to the LCD screen, and then the hood portion simply holds onto that via the magnets. This means that when you don't need the hood (for instance, indoors where glare is not an issue and it might get in the say) then just pulling it off and slipping it into a pocket in the camera bag gets it out of the way. Surprisingly useful!

The LCD shade makes a world of difference

No more shading your screen with your hand. The LCD Shade comes in two pieces, the screen protector that has metal embedded in the border and the LCD shade itself. The screen protector is glass, and the border is coloured black (to hide the embedded metal). It is quite easy to attach to the screen. As it is relatively inflexible, you likely will not get those dreaded air bubbles. For the X-T2, the screen protector allows 100% view of the screen. The protector does not degrade the quality of the display. The LCD shade attaches to the screen protector, and thus to the camera, via embedded magnets. Overall, it does its job well, shading the screen from glare. It also works with the screen in various orientations. I use a larger eye cup that Fujifilm has (EC-XT L), and it does not get in the way of the shade when the screen faces upward. (You can see this in one of the attached photos.) Oh yes, you will want to play around with your display options (the button on the right side of the EVF viewfinder). When the LCD shade is open and the screen faces up, the eye sensor detects the shade, so you will need to use one of the options that has the eye sensor off. When it is open, I find it useful to put my thumb one on right-side support, so that I do not accidentally knock off the LCD shade. I think the magnets are strong enough, without being too difficult to remove. (You might want to change the orientation of the LCD shade or even remove it, depending on your shooting conditions. For me, it is usually in the default shade-above-the-screen position.) Some might want it to be even stronger, but that is personal preference. One star docked because the catch on one side (there are two tiny ridges to secure the screen when closed) seems a little loose. Given time, the side that is tight right now will wear out. I may not be able to close the screen shade in time to come. Other than that, no regrets buying this.

Works well

Easy to install. Fit my XT2 perfectly. If you've ever used a view camera with a Graflok back then this will be very familiar to you. The doors are plastic as you might expect but work really well. Just like the metal ones on a Graflok. It is fairly easy to knock it off when the doors are open and you bump it since it's held on by magnets. But it does the job of shading the screen nicely. I didn't realize how little I use the LCD. I hardly ever open it! But it also should offer some protection if I ever drop my camera on its back.

question

Will it fit X-t3?
Asked by: Anonymous
I asked someone at Vello and they told me it didn't fit because the XT3 screen is a bit different than the one of the XT2. Really...? It is strange that Vello does not manufacture one model for the XT3, which has been on the market for a year already.
