    Questions on accessories for HPX250
    #1

    Hi,

    I am upgrading from my HPX172 to the HPX250.

    I have two questions -

    a) Is anybody aware of any good hood that fits the HPX250 LCD? I noticed when I tried the camera in the sun, the details are gone.

    b) I currently have a custom made metal base that fits exactly under my HPX172. Is anybody aware of an equivalent for the HPX250? That metal base is meant to prevent the plastic base from cracking in case of a heavy landing when the camera is placed on its tripod.

    Thanks,
    TS

    Can't help you with b), but for a), check out Hoodman. They have hoods, and one of them conforms to the dimensions of the HPX250 LCD screen.

    I talked to Curtis from Juice Designs who made the baseplate for my 170. I asked if he would be making one for the 250::

    Yes I still plan on making them. I don't have a timeframe yet unfortunately. I still haven't been able to get my hands on a camera... If anyone is in Southern California not to far from Oceanside I could measure up your camera and give you a really good deal on the first one.
