A fantastic and large sunhood for the Leica X1

During the photo trip to Spain we had extremely hot and sunny weather. The sun was burning with 30 degrees average and even 38 degrees on the vast Grasslands. To take pictures without a sun hood on the Leica X1 is under those circumstances very difficult. I had however also brought with me the new Leica digiscope adapter for the X1. This large full metal tube is screwed onto the camera lens. It turned out that with this on the camera there is no light falloff in the corners and it works perfectly as a sun hood! Wa
What is also very nice is that the overall grip on the camera is also improved. It is almost as if you have mounted a short telephoto lens on the X1.
I loved this solution and kept it on the camera during the complete trip and it worked perfectly. So for only 115 Euro you have a very good functioning sun hood which can be screwed onto the camera without the need for a separate adapter!
