Hi, Looking for feedback on the Hoodman Loupe as where I live for most of the year you just cannot see the image on the rear screen of any camera due to the harsh sunlight.
Thanks in Advance.
Russ


Many Thanks,
Russell.

I love my Hoodman Loupe. It makes it so much easier to see your LCD screen outside. I use it almost all the time when I'm shooting outdoors.

Never would have bought one for myself, but I received as an Xmas gift 3 or 4 years ago....it's terrific for harsh light conditions. It's a little fiddly to use, but it's saved my sanity a few times; I just tuck it in my bag "just in case".

Have used one and thought it was awesome. Have not bought one though because thought it was pricey. It is still on my want list...

Hi, Yes that is a bit of sticking point for me (The price) so been looking around and came across this article but wonder as in most things you get what you pay for!!
