I purchased from Amazon 3 Delkin pop-up shades for my Canon s100, sx40 & sx260. They a wonderful for viewing the lcd in bright sunlight & also protect the camera lcd. They add very little bulk to the camera & also can be removed when not needed. I plan to leave them on & reduce the brightness of the lcd to save battery power. I know the sx40 has a viewer but for me to use the lcd when shooting pano is easier. Just thought I would share. jimjoh

I use the delkin popups on several DSLR rigs and like them. Even modified a Delkin 3inch loup to use the base from one of the popups so I have a clip on/off focusing loup for video. BUT when I tried to get one of the popups to work on my flip out LCD on the SX40HS...I found the slight curvature of the screens border would not work with the popups base which works with a a "flat" surface only. It does work with the 60D but then you can't flip and close the LCD.

How did you get it to work with the SX40HS???

Just because I didn't know that it does not work on the sx40 I just installed it & it seems to be fine. The pop-up also protects the screen from damage also. jimjoh

I just purchased a 2.8x LCD Viewfinder view finder Extender magnifier. The V5 (for Nikon) looks like it will work on the S100. Should arrive in early Aug. The S100 has a steel frame and the magnets in the hood should hold without the included plate. Hoping to use it on my S100 and SD990 for following action, in bright sun and video

I love this. So many things are accomplished by people who didn't know it couldn't be done.

hmmm...I'll have to get another one and try it. The first one I tried I couldn't get the base to stay on the LCD frame. It kept lifting off after a few removals of the shade part of the popup unit.
