I'm sure many people have had thiis problem and after doing a search through the forum I couldn't find anything recent so was hoping somebody had some suggestions. I took my new Canon SD600 on a trip and for most times when I couldn't see the LCD screen because of the sun it wasn't a problem because I could use the viewfinder. However, I wanted to do some panoramic shots and that required the LCD screen. Totally out of luck there. Luckily I had brought along my Canon S2 IS too and with that viewfinder (which is digital) I was able to do it.

Even changing settings on the SD600 was difficult when no shade was around. So how can I use the SD600 out in the sun?

they do sell sunshades for lcd screens, they stick over the screen and the shade pops up to sheild most of the light, there is also a bellows type screen too that simply pulls out, try google for lcd sunshade or ebay

Yes, years ago I owned a hoodman which wasn't that helpful. I was hoping there was something new these days since most small point & shoot cameras rely heavily on their LCD screens.
