    Hello everyone. I am a fairly new NEX-5 user. I love the camera but have had some trouble viewing the screen in very bright light. Has anyone tried out the screen hoods that are available for the NEX? Do they make a big difference?

    I was consider it, until I realized that i can move my body in such a way that to block all the direct sunlight

    I have one of the pop-up/removable ones and use it all of the time.

    Unfortunately you can not always move to get out of the sun. The side benefit is that it protects the screen.

    Sure, here it is.

    It does add a bit to the back end, but not that much.
