Hello all! I am wondering if anyone has any good ideas on purchasing or constructing a hood for 7" widescreen color LCD monitor
16:9/4:3 NTSC/PAL?

Thanks
Jason

I think Tiffen sell it as an accessory part.

If not, two words: black wrap. Great for that sort of thing.

Or, it's easy enough to make one yourself out of any rigid material - just add velcro to the monitor surround, and matching velcro to your hood, and away you go!

a 7" Hoodman might work for you: http://www.hoodmanus...sp?number=H-700

Or you can make something out of coroplast, metal or any of millions of other materials.

Some matte black cardboard with some velcro. Cheap, easily modified, even look good if you can cut straight :)

Great suggestions everyone, and thanks for the link! I have seen some AC's work magic with matte-board so that sounds about right......just need a ruler to cut straight!! :blink:

Thanks
