I wish that I’d had one of these before!

Hi folks,

I’ve been looking for one of these LCD hoods for a while. The problem is that all the one’s I’ve found require sticking parts to the camera, something that I didn’t want to do. Enter the Movo LH30 Deluxe LCD Hood Shade for Flip-Out DSLR Camera and Camcorder LCD’s (for 3″ Screens).ย , catchy name huh?!. It’s cheap and cheerful and it does the job, it’s not made well enough to last a lifetime and it perfectly fits my OM-D E-M5 Mk II articulated screen.ย  I think that they are also available for 2.75, 3.25 and 3.5 inch screens under the MOVO and NEEWER brand names.

I don’t usually use the LCD screen very much out and about even though they have their uses, partly because I’m so used to using viewfinders for all these years, partly to conserve battery consumption and partly because in strong sunlight and in hot countries etc., theyโ€™re absolutely flipping useless, you can’t see a darned thing. This lightweight unobtrusive little bit of kit works like a charm. Always nice when one finds something that oneโ€™s been looking for for ages and it works as expected. ๐Ÿ™‚

Does what it says on the tin for blog

Best wishes.



Hi everyone,

I never get tired of photographing this wildly eccentric houseboat on the River Thames at Kingston Upon Thames. every time I revisit there’s something new to see. Note the addition of a face mask to the White Rabbit, nice touch.



Kind regards
