Hoodman Hood for D3 LCD

    When I picked up my D3, I puchased a Hoodman Hood for the LCD under the premise that if it can be scratched, I will find a way.

    Unlike the Nikon LCD covers for my other bodies, which have a bad habit of falling off, this Hoodman Hood is on really tight. That's the problem; for the life of me, I can't find a way to remove it without probably breaking one of the little flanges that holds it in place.

    I would like to remove it periodically to check the LCD. Anyone know how to do that, without breaking it?
  2. It has to be similar to my D2X, push up with medium pressure from the bottom of the hoodman, as you pull out the bottom towards you, at the same time. It takes the pressure off the tabs, and swings right out.

    The hoodman LCD protector is a bit of a pain to remove. I carefully used a metal nail file to push up on the bottom and it came off.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll try it your way Christopher.

    Greg, I don't think that I have your courage to put a nail file anywhere near the LCD.
