    Vello LHV-3.5 reviews

    3.5" LCD Hood is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A universal fit Bought for the Sony PXW-X70. Works but appears it was designed for a slimmer LCD screen because the velcro flap doesn't mash 100%. Not a big deal but you know how it is. We want things to fit perfectly. Looks and feels well made. Would recommend to a friend. Thanks BH for stocking quality merchandise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sturdy Little Hood That Could! I purchased three of these well-constructed little hoods specifically for a wedding ceremony I was scheduled to shoot on August 11th at Disneyland Hotel's, Rose Court Garden. It was a bright, sunny day and temperatures were expected to hit 92 degrees. Two of the hoods were the 2.7 type, which I bought for my high def Sony cams. The other was the 3.5 version, purchased for my high def Canon. They were very well made, lightweight, and super quick and easy to attach to the cameras. The two Sonys held down fixed positions either side of the gazebo and captured closeups of the wedding vows, etc. Both were in the sun, as it was later in the day, and I roamed with my Canon... so I was in and out of the sun with it. Without these little hoods we would have had a very difficult time seeing what we were shooting on the view screens. These great little LCD Hoods allowed us to concentrate on what was important, a one-time opportunity at capturing a lasting memory for the bride & groom, and their families. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. These hoods did exactly what I needed them to do, and they helped me to do a better job at what I do! I highly recommend them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for AG-AC90 - but need mods... I shoot a lot of outdoor soccer games, in sun, rain, and snow. For the sunny days I find the Vello 3.5 LCD hood to be an excellent choice to shield the screen and improve LCD visibility. The design of the hood supports the touch screen functions of my Panasonic camera, with the sloped sides/shorter bottom. In comparison, a Hooodman LCD hood, with all four sides of the hood being the same depth, it makes it difficult to reach in to touch the screen. However, I find the Vello's 'flap' attachment system is not accommodating for the thickness of the AC90's monitor casing. Like another reviewer, I had to bend the top flap to extend its 'hinge' portion, and I also had to cut out the rectangular spongy foam section of the bottom flap (that lies against the back of the LCD monitor casing) to get a good fit. Goodbye 1 year warranty. I really like the look of the hood on my camera, it's dark, non-refletive material works well and looks very professional.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for touch screens The sloped front gives you better access to touch screens. It seems to have been designed for zero thickeness screens. For my XA10 which is pretty typical I had to manually work an extra crease in the rigid (cardboard?) flaps that velco together behind the screen. That done it works perfectly and still lets you use the buttons on the outside edge of the screen. Note that it does not fold flat if that's an issue for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works After Tweaking I use this sunshade on my Canon XA20 camcorder - it fits well and does the job. The tapered design allows access to the touchscreen, and you can quickly flatten the whole thing to fit in your camera bag. Vello made the overlapping Velcro flaps thick and fairly rigid instead of pliable. To allow a snugger fit where they overlap, I softened the flaps up some by folding and flexing them. I'm happy, good purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design Functionally, the hood works fine in terms of blocking sun. The problem arises when the hood has to be attached to the LCD. It does not take into consideration different LCD thicknesses. In the case of one of my cameras the stiff velcro strap does not fit around the back so the velcro has no chance to catch and in this case the hood is useless without some DIY mods. A small, inexpensive design change could have easily solved this problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last a less expensive way. At last an inexpensive solution to the problem of DSL cameras with LCD swinging backs that don't have enough daylight and sun protection.
