D1 LCD cap and hood coming from Hoodman  
Thursday, August 17, 2000 | by
Hoodman, maker of glare reduction hoods including the E2000 for laptops, is turning its attention to the Nikon D1. Next month, the company is planning to introduce two products for Nikon's flagship digital SLR:
  • Hoodcap-HCD1. A see-through LCD monitor cap that replaces the opaque cap included with the D1. This should be a boon for wearers of eyeglasses especially, or anyone else concerned about keeping their screen in pristine condition, since the cap will protect the LCD monitor from scratches but still allow easy viewing of images on it. It is slated for delivery September 15, though Hoodman's Bob Schmidt is hoping to move the product's release closer "to the beginning of September to accommodate the shooters at the Olympics." Hoodman has pegged the price at US$19.95.

  • Hoodman-HD1. A collapsible hood for the LCD monitor on the D1, to minimize glare in bright light. The delivery date is September 30, at a price of US$49.95.

Pro camera dealers in the US are expected to carry the product.
