“Looking down”

Hi folks,

I’ve often said that one shouldn’t forget to always look up as there are so many interesting things above eye-level such as building facades etc. but it’s also good to look down at what’s under one’s feet such as this interesting brightly patterned pavement art. ๐Ÿ™‚

JJC 3 inch LCD Shade.

Hi everyone,

As I’ve now fitted my VF-4 electronic viewfinder to my PEN E-P5 I thought I’d have a look around and see if I could find an LCD shade for my PEN E-PL5. I bought a JJC shade that seems to fit and work pretty well. The shade incorporates a screen protector and the shade part clips on and detaches if not required. They come in silver or black, I chose the silver one to match the camera. I don’t like LCDs and don’t want to have to keep moving the VF-4 from camera to camera so this look like a fairly good compromise. I’m nor sure how it will stand up to the rigours of time but it’s quite well made and cheap. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kind regards


PS. It also helps if you increase the LCD display brightness in the control menu just like you would on a mobile phone. Of course this will drain the battery faster but at least you are in with a better chance of seeing what you are shooting in bright light. ๐Ÿ™‚
