Be Careful

I have a Delkin 3" shade on my Q as well as my K-01. Comes in very handy in sunny locations.
Just so you know the 3" fits great on the K-01, BUT will be a bit large on The Q. By this I mean that it the mount will stick up a bit top and bottom. Not enough to catch on things and get in the way--just enough to be a bit of a pain in the butt. I can live with it!
As far as a 2.8" shade-that may fit a bit better, but you will lose a bit of the image in playback and enlarging the foto you have just taken.
I think they are worth it as it protects the screen from sharp KNOCKS AND SCRATCHES.

What I forgot to mention was that you should take an alcohol swab or lightly soaked cotton ball and alcohol to clean off any grease, dirt, or skin oils before attaching. Once on -press down securely and leave for about 8 to 16 hours for the glue to adhere better. If you don't like it it comes off fairly easily with no residue left.
I got my 3" Delkin from B&H for about $8 to $9US.
Sorry, but can't provide any fotos for now.
