So, I both love it — and am incredibly chagrined — when things that seem *difficult* and *imposing* and *time-consuming* turn out to be *easy* and *simple* and *quick*.
…Before the recent trip to Europe (I’m going to pimp those pictures every opportunity I get ;-) I had bought a flip-up LCD screen from Hoodman, and the trip was the first time I’d used it (yes, bringing new gear on a trip is Not So Bright, but, anyway…). Sadly, it promptly busted.
Calling them to explain the issue has been on “the list” since I got home. Every few hours I look at the list, think “oh yeah, I should do that now”… and then shy away from it. Silly, really.
So I finally called them all full of trepidation at having to explain how I’d managed to break the little beastie right after getting it and they answer and I start to sidle into the breakage issue, when he said:
“Yep — we had a batch where the assembler stressed that little tab. We’ll send you a new one.”
and :-( for being so silly in the first place.

so how did you like the LCD hood before it broke?
awesome photos! I hadn’t had a chance to look at them before now, so I’m really glad you posted the link again.
Well, the 20 minutes I had with it were nice, but I don’t feel like I have enough data to really judge. Should get new one soon. Remind me and I’ll report back.
And thanks for the kind words about the photos!
