    Hi All,

    Generally I shoot on my EP2 using the EVF.

    However, recently I have seen light shading lcd viewers such as Silvestri Digibellow and Photosolve Xtendaview on the internet.

    Does anyone have any views or experience with these accessories? Does the quality of a light shaded LCD match the EVF? Should I just stick with the EVF?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    Richard I prefer the EVF to the LCD. A hood as well as shading means you bring the camera to your eye which is a more stable way to hold. I suspect the resolution of the EVF may be better than the LCD (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong).

    I used a hood with my Oly C-5050 which also magnified the view. This was a mixed blessing as individual pixels could be seen. This is probably less of a problem with the newer LCDs. The hood also makes the camera more difficult to put in and out of a bag.
