About Hoodman

The Hoodman HoodLoupe Optical Viewfinder for 3.2" LCD Displays is used to make a close inspection of images as you reviews them on your DSLR camera's LCD display. The LCD screen Loupe isolates the display from ambient light so you will not be distracted by reflections or shadows in it. This makes it easier to view image details quickly to confirm focus and ensure that you have the best image possible. It will provide full coverage of an LCD display screen up to 3.2" diagonally with a standard (3:2) aspect ratio.

Works as advertised

Decent quality, works as it should. I'm looking to make an alternative to hold it in place for macro shooting, rather than the optional $20 rubber bands you can get for it.

My first "hoody"

By

from Jefferson City, MO

Priceless for bright sunny days or other situations where reviewing the LCD screen is necessary. I've wanted to make this purchase for years and I now wish I wouldn't have waited so long.

Excellent Product

By

from Sarnia Ontario

This product is excellent for reviewing your images in sun light. One you set the focus on the optical viewfinder you can see without exception if your images are sharp or not.

Why did I wait so long...

By

from West Palm Beach, Florida  -  Semi-Professional

This item can be used indoors as well as outdoors... The eye-piece can be adjusted/focused for clarity... The body completely covers the viewing screen & blocks bright light for better viewing... Light and portable w/easy to use & carry...

The answer to my prayers!

from Phoenix, AZ  -  Semi-Professional

So much easier to see if I got the shot! It's also adjustable for individual eyesight. Blocks out surrounding light, enlarges the image! Doesn't get any better than this! A+

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Bruce S  Can you mount the hood loupe on the camera so that you can carry it around with out it falling off?
ANDERS S  I believe there is a device you can buy that will hold it in place, but buy itself, it will not stay on the camera.
Shopper  Which hoodman loupe fits a Nikon d300?
THOMAS R  The screen size dictates the loupe size. Hoodman sells the 3" (DX) that fits the screen for the older D-Series cameras, i.e.: D90...and, a 3.2" (FX) that fits the larger screens on the current models i.e.: D800, D600 Though I have both sized cameras, I use the larger version as it works well on both.
Luca L  Does it fit Nikon D800?
THOMAS R  I am not sure, but should. Sorry that's the best I can do in answering this question.
