Friend of mine recently broke his Canon’s 30D LCD screen on his way to the Grant Canyon. 3 days shooting without chimping wasn’t the issue, but a costly repair of $331 got him thinking about having a protective LCD screen on next trip. Here’s a neat accessory for Nikonians and Canonians looking for a rugged pop-up shades to protect their costly Digital SLR. Delkin has expanded its line of protective Pop-Up shades for Nikon D3, D300, D60 and Canon Rebel XSi. A universal model also available for compact cameras with LCD monitor with 2.7-inch or 2.8-inch screen size.
The Delkin’s shade cover is easily attached to digital cameras, and lifted up to shade the LCD for improved visibility when the camera is used in bright light. The Professional shades is retailed at $39,99 while the standard and Universal models is $29,99 and $19,99.
