    Vello LHV-3.0 reviews

    3.0" LCD Hood is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.0 LCD Hood by Vello This would be excellent except for the fit around the screen body. The lower attachment flap has a cushion that spaces it away from the back side of the screen and the upper flap doesn't have enough flexibility or reach to allow the hook & loop to mate together well, resulting in angular contact. I cut open and removed the little foam cushion from inside the lower flap, but it only helped a little. Otherwise this is performing well as a light shroud, and is very helpful in bright conditions. Also, it would be nice if it folded up. It creates empty space in your bag unless you can find something else to put inside it. The camera is a Panasonic GH4.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from works, but I've seen better I'll keep it short. i have a Hoodman hood for my Panasonic 160 but it's too big for the 3.0 screen i have on the 70D. i can't help but to compare the two and 2 things are disgustingly different in favor of the Hoodman. 1. the Vello doesn't fold. at all. very annoying to store in the bag. the Hoodman folds flat and i can put it in my pocket. 2. the Trapeze design of the Vello is not as effective as the full rectangle of the Hoodman. the Vello gives you a wider viewing angle but doesn't block the light as good because of the shape. all in all, if Hoodman had something the size of the 70D, i'd go for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING LITTLE HOOD! This little simple, yet high quality made hood is without a doubt, another reason why I love B&H !!! >>> I owned other hoods for my prosumer and consumer camcorders, and ended up just throwing them away after purchasing this... I loved it so much upon arrival, that I bought 2 more for all my other cameras... I usually shoot events with 3 cameras, with 3 camera operators >>> I wanted each one of my crew members to have their own hood in their bags, because I loved it so much... It will fit your pro-sumer and consumer cameras LIKE A GLOVE! >>> No more fidgeting around with velcro flap doors... Buy this product if you simply want to smile for knowing B&H

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I thought I really needed this... This product is nicely made, good leather, fits nice (like a glove) on LCD of d5200... But I never use it! It's too shallow to really prevent any of the direct kind of sun that makes it hard to see, and honestly, popping your hand up to check works better. If you have it on, it's awkward to maneuver the screen around. I really wanted to like it, but even on the shoulder rig it just gets in the way. If the sun is crazy and you need to nail exposure, or see the screen really well, a good loupe or evf is really required anyway. Too bad I bought 3 of these before I tested them out...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple & effective design.. This hood is well designed, well manufactured, easy to attach, use, and store. Using it with a fold out LCD screen enhances using your camera. No longer is glare and unwanted distracting reflections a problem. Hats off to a small designer and manufacturer for improving the use of many cameras both still and motion) Well worth your money!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for Canon T3i, but pretty simple For shooting in daylight with a Canon T3i, some kind of lens hood is a must-- this is the cheapest I found and it does the job well enough. It's not as nice as the Petrol mini hood we use on the C100s, but the viewfinder here is not as substantial, so it can't take as much.My only complaint is that the hood does not velcro shut cleanly because of the thickness of the flip-out screen on the camera. It holds tightly, but rather than closing flat, the top flap sticks out at an angle. Oh well. What matters is that I can see in the daytime for the price of a chicken tikka and garlic naan.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality hood for my Canon 70D This is a simple yet effective hood for my 70D flip out LCD screen. Easy to attach and still use the touch screen. As others have noted it doesn't fold flat and it does tend to twist a bit out of square but I like it. And it won't fit while the screen is folded back onto the body but definitely worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello 3 LCD Hood This is really a nifty gadget! Last time I went to the beach, I couldn't see the images on the screen because of all the glare from the sun, but this should take care of that. Very easy & intuitive to attach--it wraps around the back of the screen & attaches to itself with velcro to hold it in place. Can easily slide it off quickly if needed. I bought a second one as a gift.
