Hoodman H-LPP3 HoodLoupe 3.0 Professional 3-Inch Screen Loupe – Review:
I had a shoot, just before purchasing the hoodloupe, where I had the sun raking across my lens. Many of the photos were a disaster due to major sun flare lines gouging across the images and washing them out. All I had to do was turn my tulip shaped lens hood a few degrees to block the sun but I could not see my screen to make the correction. The resulting photos needed a lot of Photoshopping to fix and they still look bad.
After the afore mentioned disaster, I purchased this product on the recommendation of Scott Kelby in one of his books. The hoodloupe saved my next shoot in the sun and this was a shoot I could not blow. I could clearly see what the images looked like. It is well worth the money. It might not fit all screens perfectly but you can see enough of the screen, by blocking out ambient light pollution, to make the necessary corrections before screwing up an entire photo shoot that you cannot redo.
