What do you do ? I did a shoot today and I turned the camera in all directions to look the LCD screen to see the histogram. There was no chance in hell of seeing anything. So what do you do other then hope you have the settings right ?

Get a lcd hood. Or, shield it with your hands. Or stand in the shade. Or carry around a dark colored paper cup out of which you've cut the bottom. Or carry a piece of black foil and mold a instant hood. Lot's of options and I've used them all successfully.
Cheers,

Mike, I'm glad I'm not the only one. Today I wore a very light wind breaker and kind of pulled it over my head and camera to make it dark enough to see. Maybe looks weird to someone watching but it worked pretty good.

I just have a Horseman medium format. I use a black hood so that I can see the glass viewfinder.

I've got this image in my head of digital photographers looking like they've been transported from the 1800s using hoods to see their LCD screens.

Us 4x5 shooters encounter the same problem too...and for over 150 years have been handeling that problem quite effectively..and what you have to do is get under a dark cloth.. bring with you a big black felt cloth for you to dive under with your camera to see what is on your screen.. that will do wonders!
