Hoods can be used as viewfinder like on EX3

This is interesting thread about similar problem or solution:
http://www.hv20.com/showthread.php?t=10041
I have made something just for testing in bright sunlight, it was actualy only a hood on hv20 lcd, and it works, so if you can make your setup practical enough to use existing lcd you need just some hood like this to achive viewfinder like capability.

Anyway, authorized pro-service centers for Canon and JVC has those as spare parts or upgrades for their broadcast cameras. Canon has viewfinder as upgrade to XL-H1 on his regular pricelist at my local Canon dealer, but you have to know how to connect it. Those are expensive add ons and probably is much wiser to wait for XL-H1A and have it all.

For $56 give me three please, lol. According to Hoodman USA, it fits up to 2.75 inch LCD screens, and that's the size of the HV20 LCD.
