I needed some form of shade for my video camera because in direct sunlight it was really difficult to see the screen image. This hood is very well made, very sturdy and if angled right, will shade the screen. If the sun is high, you'll need to have the screen almost vertical for the shade to be effective. But, the fixing (velcro) was obviously designed for a slimmer screen that mine (Canon XA10)and although it fits firmly, the velcro is on it's limits. It also obscures some buttons to the side of the screen although by fiddling with the position of the hood, you can still access them (any similar hood would have the same problem). For this price though, you can try it and it it doesn't make the difference you need, you haven't lost much.

I have a Sony HDR SX130 Camcorder and this fits almost perfectly. Took a little time to feel convinced to buy as the UK reseller was confused about screen sizes but emailed the manufacturer and they advised it would fit. The original Canon cameras they were designed to fit are standard screen whereas my Sony is a widescreen format fold out screen. At first it seems a little clumsy but once you have the velcross fastener sorted it allows you to actually see the screen which is virtually invisible in bright light otherwise. That is a serious benefit! It would help if the description actually showed the sizes as height and width rather than 3.5'' which of course could be a diagonal as it is a screen.

I bought this for my new HF G25 Camcorder.
I love the EVF on the new camcorder, but this allows me to use the LARGE LCD screen (3.5 inches) and all the touch screen facilities at the same time.
It works amazingly well indeed.
Another very good item from JJC.

I could not use the camcorder in bright sunlight without this. It does not take all the glare off the screen but you can at least see what is going on.
It is easy to fit and very light. It does not fold up so take a bit of room in the camera bag but this is what makes it so sturdy.
Excellent value.

I've been impressed with the quality of this item, it seems very well made. It does cut out some reflection, but not all. Bought it for my friend's panasonic V700 and whilst it does fit, it doesn't fit perfectly - its a bit bulky.

Actually a little on the small side even for a small 3½ inch screen, but it will wrap around it ok. In fact I managed to wrap it around an even larger screen because the velcro is very strong. So this is a decent value little item.

Used this item on a recent holiday, in bright sunshine it is totally useless, even in moderate sun it is poor. In my opinion its a waste of money.

The unit is functional and helps solve a ever present problem on bright days. It is well made and ezy to fit.

Good quality and does what it's supposed to do. Fits my Sony Handycam HDR SR1e no problem. Would recommend to anyone.

This is exactly what I expected. Nothing less and nothing more. It is ok if you are not looking for a super product.
