Fits Canon Camcorder HF R300 3" LCD
on October 11, 2012
I was having a difficult time deciding between this hood (fits 2.7" LCD's) and the RainbowImaging 3.5" LCD Hood, because I own a Canon Vixia camcorder that has a 3" LCD. Would this 2.7" be too small, or the 3.5" too big? Suddenly it was a Goldilocks/porridge situation. I took a chance and bought this one and, despite the fact that the photo (at the lead of this page) shows it a poor fit over a 3" LCD, it does, in fact fit and has just enough room to accommodate the actual LCD panel without blocking any part of it. Yes, the frame enclosure around the Canon LCD panel does stick out beyond the hood (just like the photo shows), but it doesn't affect the functionality, and the appearance looks just fine. I can only speculate that the 3.5" LCD Hood may have been too loose and, perhaps, slid all over the place. Anyhow, thumbs up for this LCD Hood by Cowboy Studio. It's rugged, well stitched leatherette over (I'm guessing) some stiff, thick cardboard, with super strong velcro holding the flap in place. It stays snug on the LCD panel, yet can slide off if you choose, or unclasp the velcro and take it off that way. Btw, I had it, along with several other Amazon items, shipped with "FREE Super Saver Shipping" (a 5-8 day wait) and the entire purchase arrived by UPS on day 5, all packed/boxed quite well with no problems and no shipping charges!
