SmallHD DP1 Shooting in Bright Sunlight

You got-a love that Brazilian sunshine and congrats on the Olympics. A lot of folks here were pulling for you.

As for the sun vs an LCD, it is no contest. This is a real problem for any monitor. As Andrew mentioned, the Sun Hood helps a lot, but it does not completely solve the problem. We have had several clients speak favorably about our matte screen protectors when shooting outdoors. This approach does reduce glare at the expense of crispness. Of course, ANY non-reflective screen surface will have the same issue. At least with the DP1 you are starting with a rather crisp image, at least that is our opinion.

BTW: If you click on any of the photos on our site you will see the original untouched photo.

We are keeping our eye on OLED technology, but it is very expensive at the moment. Maybe Apple's rumored OLED hand-held will help drive down the prices. We can only hope.
