    Hoodman H-400 reviews

    H-400 Camcorder LCD Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 71.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but hampers touch screen Giving it four stars because although it works as advertised, it does make it relatively/practically impossible to work the touch-LCD screen on the XA10 (and possibly other touch-screen cameras). I'm a huge fan of the XA10 touch screen-- makes menu navigation really rapid-- but since touch screens are likely going to increase in use, perhaps there's a small adjustment they could make to this unit to allow better access. Otherwise, works as advertised IMO, and I really like that it folds down quickly for storage (some others I saw didn't).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Useful Accessory I purchased this device for use on a Sony EX-1, after I saw it applauded by one of our British bretheren. And now I use it on every outdoor shot (and also on some of the brighter indoor shots, particularly with blinding overhead spots!). While the EX-1's LCD monitor is bright (and of course, fantastically detailed), this accessory is often of great benefit in aiding percepetion of what is really there in the deep shadows. It's easy to collapse and carry in my kit, its easy to attach, and it certainly aids in making the best possible use of the monitor. I just wouldn't be without it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job I spent three hours shooting outdoors today mostly in the sun. The Hoodman did its job to keep the screen in the shade most of the time. The only time the sun hit the screen was when the sun was directly behind me coming in over my shoulder but was manageable. It is easy to install, using two Velcro strips. It allows easy access to the controls which remain outside the hood on the Canon XF100. My only minor complaint was sometimes it would get bumped and get cocked a little off but it is easily straightened. It is well-made and easy to pack in my camera bag, taking up very little space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hood I've been using the H-400 for at least 8 years now (Sony EX's and PMW's). I don't have any cons because I'm just so used to it & can't imagine shooting without it. Off course, it's main purpose is to be used outdoors, but it also comes in handy during retail & interviews when I'm inline with my lighting or there's tons of ambient light. Just flat out invaluable when tweaking your shots in the field & helps clients get a better preview also. I quess I've finally worn out the velcro after all these years, so now I'm ordering 2 more (maybe 3) and shelf the spares!!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from H-400 fits my Sony FS100 pretty well The size fits my screen very well, however, the joint at the screen attachment point gets in the way just a tad. You can push it up a little and it works fine. The hood does a good job shielding the screen from the bright sun, and this is what I bought it for, so in my book it works perfectly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Accessory for Outdoor Video I am an avid videographer who loves shooting in the open air. I recently purchased a Canon Vixia to try shooting in HD. The camera performs like a pro, but when shooting outdoors, the LCD needs help. The LCD hood is the perfect answer. It slips onto the LCD screen and provides the shielding from the light you need. The construction could have been a little bit heaveier, but then again, who needs the extra weight. I would recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must-Have for Outdoor Shooting! I've shot a lot of outdoor sporting events for years and just recently decided to get one of these hoods. Now that I have one, I don't know what took me so long to get one, especially considering the inexpensive price compared to all the other camera gear. This is one of the first accessories I would purchase with any new camera. I considered the many other products on the market. There are some hoods designed by the manufacturer, but they don't fold up and are more expensive. There are other competitors, but again they are more expensive and don't provide the simple wrap-around function that the Hoodman offers. I use one of these on a Sony PMW-EX1, and the H-400 fits perfectly. Once you velcro the elastic straps to the proper length, you can easily slip the hood on and off and fold it for storage. I deducted one star because the material used on the inside of the hood is shiny and reflective, although it is black. So this means that if you get sun bouncing off the inside bottom surface, then it causes some glare. If they changed the fabric to a matte finish, then that should reduce the amount of glare. You could also apply some material on your own if it really bothers you. In the end, I recommend this accessory for anyone shooting outdoors using the flip-out LCD on your camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A step in the right direction I use this product on my HPX170 for outdoor motorsports coverage. The piece is about a 30 second install and provides a degree of light protection for the undersized screen on the HPX. A fair amount of my shooting are pans following racecars on the track surface. All the shooting is in daylight with me usually standing in direct light attempting to pan and focus at the same time. This piece does help. Its not a substitute for a Marshall LCD, but if your having to be mobile all day its very little money well spent
