    I need a LCD Hood for my new E-P2 (haven't received it yet);
    Do you know if this one could fit?
    Thanks for your advices.

    I think it may cover the buttons on the right of the LCD. I have a different one for my E-P1 that has a cut-out for the buttons and attaches via the hot-shoe (no glue). Unfortunately I can't find the seller again.

    Yep I saw that one, with the system which clip on the hotshoe.
    Unfortunately I can't use it because I always need the hotshoe for the EVF
    (I always shoot with evf, although I never look at the LCD, even after shooting :smile:)

    Here you go:

    This one isn't as much of a sun shade, but others might like it:


    And this was reported by another member: "Delkin Universal Pop-Up Shade fits perfectly on my E-P1, and attached carefully, the symbols next to the buttons are still visible."

    It's a really interesting item, Thanks for sharing!
    Personnally I don't need it, because I'm only searching for a system which close the LCD (I only use the EVF), but it might be a good idea for a lot of Pen users.

    The first one might be a very interesting solution, because it can be used as a tiltable screen replacement… and will certainly fit when the EVF is ON the camera.
    The only thing I wonder if it's solid (I mean : if it doesn't open alone).

    The second one is the answer I was waiting : I saw it on the bay but I didn't know if it was fitting on the E-P2.
    I must now evaluate if the EVF on the camera isn't an issue with that hood.

    Now I must decide which is the good one for me…

    Thanks for your very positive post!
