Cameras forum



by cpmadave / April 17, 2013 11:05 AM PDT

I'm happy with my camera except when I can't see the screen because of the light/reflection/glare. And repositioning doesn't always help. How do I overcome it without buying a camera with a viewfinder?

If I brought my non-viewfinder camera I take the shot anyway.

Shades and Loupes

The cheap option is an accessory shade, which folds out an provides a shade over the top and sides of the LCD, and folds flat for when you are not using it.

The expensive option is a loupe, which essentially turns the LCD into a viewfinder.
