HOODMAN H-LPP3 HOODLOUPE 3.0 SCREEN MAGNIFIER AND HOOD For digital camera screens up to 3 inch

Hey guys - LCD Monitor in Live View Mode when shooting video in bright sunshine!
Yep that old problem - but has anyone found a good fix for this yet?
I prefer to work with the LCD monitor extended in video mode and have been considering the HOODMAN H-LPP3 HOODLOUPE 3.0 SCREEN MAGNIFIER AND HOOD.
It seems pricey but if anyone has got one and would swear by it I'd seriously consider getting one.
There seem to be other options around but I am loathe to "stick" anything onto the camera which would then be the magnetic base or another kind of loupe.
Thanks

I've wondered about similar things--- have you considered an external monitor - as those under B&H's website under On Camera & Field Monitors?

I got a magnified loupe from ebay for a few pounds, the base screwed into the tripod thread, it works well. Apart from one of the magnets falling off.

I have one of the knock off ones from Amazon, but will not attach the magnet part to my camera (just a personal thing). The T3i will allow a magnification to check focus with the push of a button so I really on need it to check my photos in bright sunlight (chimping) and I like being able to use it with any camera. The magnification is great.
I would go for it if I were you, although the versions that allow you to attach to the base plate are nice if you know you want to use it on that body.
