LCD Hoods for the HV-20

Has anyone had any experience with the various LCD hoods available???

What works well for the HV-20.
I've done a lot of searches for the Petrol and Hoodman shades some good some bad.
Any real world experience with any of these for the HV-20.

I live in South Fl. and a lens hood for the LCD is "a must" to shoot in bright sunlight.

Thanks
Luis

Hi Luis,

You can also just make your own. A little thin stiff cardboard or a VHS Plastic Tape cover, maybe a little black Duct Tape, a little Velcro, and a little Flat Black Paint, and you have just what you need.

Can send you Pics if interested. I've made them for each of my four Cams and others for friends. Easy, quick, cheap, and they work as well as store bought.

And I also have a Hoodman with the magnifying glass that works well.

Just remember that the best results come from the diagonal classic-Hoodman-style hoods, not the straight tunnels that typically are made for this size screen. You sacrifice a bit of image quality because you view the screen at a slight angle this way, but it will block much more ambient light.

Thanks Blake and the other guys for the input.
I think I'm sold on the Cinematics, a bit more expensive but looks more adjustable and solid.
