Default fz38 - bright light condition

In realy bright light conditions (with fz35-38), the lcd and viewfinder (which is realy small) proove to be rather inadequate... A rubber eye-piece would be helpfull, but where is it?
Is there any trick or gadget to help the situation?
Thanks in advance,
alexander

I got an anti-reflective screen protector to prevent scratches which also helps a bit with the screen visibility in sunlight.

I have got one, too, but yesterday did not help... It was sunny, so I turned the display to the viewfinder, but that was even darker!

I use the viewfinder all the time outdoors in the sunlight. A rubber eye piece would be nice but I have never had any problem seeing it. Occasionally I have to refocus it.

I even wear glasses, or spectacles, as the English call them, and I have no problems in using the FZ-35's EVF. Perhaps it a matter of getting used to using the EVF.

I also like the EVF and is probably better for the older people who are getting to the reading glasses age were the LCD appears a bit blurry.

Since getting used to using a EVF I have never wanted to return to using the LCD any more. In fact I would never buy a Super Zoom camera without one.
