How can we see the LCD screen on our J2 when the sun is behind us, without the glare and reflections?
Roy Johnston, Johannesburg, South Africa
Chris says… One disadvantage of the J2 is that it does not have an optional or built-in viewfinder. You need to use the LCD for composing your shots, and for all the camera settings. As you say, that’s not fun when shooting in sunlight.
One solution is to buy a pop-up sunshield. These attach to the back of your camera using sticky pads, and have three flaps that spring up to create a viewing shade around the LCD screen. Several manufacturers make these. ( Enhance makes a three-inch model that sells on Amazon for around £7/$13.) Alternatively, try the Victorian approach, and throw a dark piece of cloth over your head and the back of the camera!
