    LEE Screen-Shade for Leaf Aptus

    Has anyone tried the LEE Screen-Shade for Leaf Aptus?

    Am contemplating either getting that or maybe just a old fashioned dark cloth.
    The Screen-Shade is somewhat more expensive, but maybe also more convenient?

    Peter, I used Aptus 65 for 3.5 years without a need for it, and for now over one year AFi-II 12. Suggest you to use the hand to shade instead. Works for me, the display is only a tool and I keep my eyes most of time in front of camera. Been shooting in bright sunshine as well.

    Best regards,
    Anders

    Since the screen isn't really good for anything other than histogram and overall composition I just don't see it being worth the cost of their screen....

    Like anders mentioned, I just shade it with my hand.....

    But if you really need something to shade it, this might work better for a lot less cost: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...G&Q=&A=details

    Thanks guys, I just recently got the back and it's going to have it's first outing in the glaring sun of the southwest USA. Guess I'll try and see how it is before I order anything...

    I use a Hoodman loupe over the LCD screen if I have to see anything in detail on my Leaf Aptus back but also my DSLR. Works reasonably well, shields from light and you get some magnification when looking at a 1:1 zoom to check critical focus area ... ymmv
