    Advise on viewing my LCD in daylite

    Hi, I was shooting in direct sun. I have a problem with my exposures, but find it hard seeing the LCD because of glare. Tried my hands and it works a bit but still to much side light. I hopped under a blanket to dull it down. Any suggestions?

    What camera? Some of the better DSLR have a brightness option in the menu system

    I think that should be Hoodman loupe. Don't know about local availability or prices.

    (A while ago I was on the harbour and shot a couple of hundred sailing images. So bright that I didn't realise till I got them home that I'd shot them all in B&W )


    Cheers.

    Some Nikon stuff. I shoot Mirrorless and Mirrorlessless.

    you can try to buy the Hood shade for your camera on Ebay.com or Ebay.au.

    those come from China with very reasonable price.

    I personally recommend them, as I am using for both my D700 and D2xs, they work amazingly outdoor.

    A simple cardboard cut-out screen should work just as well. However, don't judge your exposure based on what you see on the LCD of your camera - it will be off. Even the histogram shown should be taken with a grain of salt since it usually is derived on the thumbnail, not the complete image as you shot it.
    Ciao, Joost

    All feedback is highly appreciated!

    i agree with many of the above posters, u could do a DIY plastic or cardboard option or u can buy a shader for it, but best best is to see on screen to make sure u are correct because the small lcd could give false info.

    I got a Hoodman Loupe from a Store in Brisbane. They needed to order it for me and was not cheap, but I absolutely love it.
