Re: Hoodman - with 3x adapter - WOW !! Solves EVF wishes?

Barely, the hoodman goes almost edge to edge horizontally, vertically it is too high. That's why I cut horizontal slits inside the hoodman's plastic to fit the JJC adapter. It makes for a perfect vertical edge aligned fit (vertical edges line up, abutting at either side). The horizontal edges have a gap (I should put tape here I guess), but the NEX body covers them up. Vertically it is no taller than the NEX itself.

nice to hear.

the hoodman is 3:2 aspect ratio, so how does it fit on the 16:9 screen? does it cut the border pixels?
