Canon Camcorder and Camera LCD Hoods
To make the most out of your Canon camcorder or camera, you want to be able to take it everywhere with you and use it in all conditions. While the vibrant LCD screen may look great in low light, it is different in bright light and sunshine. It is often very difficult to see the LCD monitor in bright conditions, and therefore you cannot see your filming work. To combat this, you can purchase helpful accessories such as Canon camcorder and camera LCD hoods.
Benefits of LCD hoods
An LCD hood works like a parasol for your LCD camcorder screen. It usually has four sides, with a larger piece at the top of the monitor to block the light from above. The four-sided awning is ideal to wrap around the screen of your digital camera to block bright overhead light when you are filming.
These small accessories are extremely beneficial when shooting films in bright daylight and sunshine as they can help to reduce glare dramatically, allowing you to see what you are filming and how well the shoot looks. This is particularly important when you're filming family moments, as you want to be able to make sure that you're fully capturing what is happening.
For convenience, you can find many of these camcorder and camera LCD hoods that are extremely compact and can fold flat when not in use. These camera hoods are ideal for popping in your camera case so you can always have it ready to use at a moment's notice. Canon LCD hoods can be very lightweight, making them extremely portable and ideal for enhancing the efficiency of outdoor shoots.
When choosing an LCD hood for your Canon camcorder , it is important to check that the LCD hood is compatible with your particular camcorder or camera model. Not all LCD screens on all Canon models are the same size.
