Hoodman fits nicely

Hi All - the Hoodman H-400 fits the LCD screen nicely - have used it for a few weddings and am very happy with it :)

Re: Hoodman fits nicely

before i bought the ea50, i knew i would not use the VF extension on the LCD (same thing when i used the ex3)

i was ready to make DIY hood, but realized i can unscrew the whole thing and let only the small hood of the original accessory.

working fine now, but i will make a better/larger one myself later

Hi Marlon - that's what I originally did but the hoodman extends much further - ideal for me

Re: Hoodman fits nicely

yeap, the original is too small. i will do one not so big as your hoodman, but about 75% as big ;)

Yes, I have got the H400 for my HD110 (originally on my PDX10P) and the H300 for my Canon HF200. Love them both.

Re: Hoodman fits nicely

Nice Pete

Sadly I'm old and falling apart eyesight wise so I really need the VF so I can make use of the magnification so I can focus decently ...the LCD is too small for my old eyes! I need about 1.5 dioptre magnification to be comfortable but don't like shooting with specs!! Hmmm maybe I need contacts???

Re: Hoodman fits nicely

Well Chris I'm short sighted and wear glasses/contacts for driving/watching TV etc but can't wear them to see close up so I'm ok filming without. I have to be more than 6" away from the LCD screen but I'm ok with that.

I remember back in the day working with cameras such as the JVC-DV500 and the Panny DP-800 I used to flip up the VF magnifier and look directly at the screen - I just don't like having my eye against the VF - I quite often film from low down or high up - I find a weddings in particular getting the camera up over a group of people results in good shots, and sometimes the only way to get the footage in a crowd - kills your arm though :)

Re: Hoodman fits nicely

Hey Pete

I'm the opposite ...I can see far but not close ..I actually tried a hoodman with one of those credit card sized Fresnel lenses over the top (it fitted exactly) but it distorts if you don't look directly straight down.

I only need glasses for close up work so the VF works a treat (plus I put a 52mm +2 closeup lens on the top (it screws right in) which allows more adjustment. I guess I'm just used to the VF but I still flip it down if I'm using the stock lens and need to use the touch focus ...works very well for the ceremony.

Re: Hoodman fits nicely

I wonder would the Hoodman H-400 fit the XA20?

Thanks.


Answering my own question here.

Contacted Hoodman and they recommend the Hoodman HD350 for the XA20.
