However, it was almost useless to me in shooting situations involving brilliant sunshine or bright lights. Rated 5 out of 5 by NoozDude from Problem Solved!! As shipped required multiple adjustments but it is very adjustable. It also swings up and pivots out of the way for shared LCD viewing or still shooting. The down side to the eyecup is that it can sometimes be difficult to adjust without making inadvertent diopter adjustments at the same time. I’m not sure you need 3x, but it works. If you use a zoom…not an issue.
This solves the issue of working outdoors with a DSLR, It’s great for video as well as shooting pictures in live mode. But on my model at least I have a heck of a time with thediopter setting staying where I set it. I was leary before I purchased the kit but was surprised at its’ quality and functionality after I received it. Extremely easy to use. Be the first to review this item. It is a bit bulky but very sturdy in design an build.

However, it was almost useless to me in shooting situations involving brilliant sunshine or bright lights. Hoping to figure out a solution. Rated 5 out of 5 by Victoria Photoguy from Now you can see what you’re shooting!
As shipped required multiple adjustments but it is very adjustable. The eyecup acts as a stabalizer when pressed against your eye. Comments Just bought the Hoodman 3. It is a bit bulky but very sturdy in design an build.
Bulky for storage but it works well so will adapt to the bulkiness. Update Unrecognized Zip Code.
I would still prefer a more robust attachment method than the bungee cords and friction. The other items in the kit work in conjunction with the HoodCrane. However, if you just need something that works good enough, then the Hoodman Cinema Kit is a great alternative and a much cheaper one as well that gets you where you need to go — just without quite the refinement of the Zacuto gear. This system won’t do for a fully professional kit but, for an aspiring amateur, it works very well.
This requires some trial and error. I just got my new Hoodman Pro in and love it! The only problem that I have on my kit is with the 3x magnifying eyecup. I was leary before I purchased the kit but was surprised at its’ quality and functionality after I received it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brady from An excellent buy! I’m not sure you need 3x, but it works. The diopter is adjustable to differing eyesights, and focus is clear.
Now I can see what is on my moitor and not have to play a quessing game in bright light. No light leak with my unit. Your email address will not be published. I have a problem with it always changing focus on me. It does have a hot shoe of its own so you can attach a microphone or a video light.

Hoodman Cinema Kit HoodLoupe 3.0 Review
Packaging Info Package Weight 0. Test in bright sunlight. Thrilled with shooting video with my Canon T4i.
Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Cinema Kit Pro is rated 4. For two years I have been eeview by not being able hodman see the live view screen in daylight sitauations, resulting in poor focus, and worse composition.
Attaching the HoodLoupe to the vinema with the included bungee straps works better than expected. There are enough secondary clues visible, that this is a non-issue. This is a big improvement over Hoodman’s original kit which involved rubber band like straps which were a pain to get on and off, requiring removal of your neck strap.
I even found it user-friendly while wearing glasses. I knew I was going to be moving around a lot and in some tight spaces so I really didn’t want to risk using an LCD Viewfinder with a magnetic mount.
Attaching as it does to the hot shoe, you will be unable to use flash, even your internal flash. There IS a piece of protective plastic that has to be removed from the diopter before use, Rated 5 out of 5 by NoozDude from Problem Solved!! Rated 4 out of 5 by Canonuser from A nice quick video setup Hoodman has come up with a nifty relatively cheap method to use your dslr for handheld video. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this product my friends.
A nice unit, and priced well in a world of over-priced DSLR add-ons’. Only minor drawback is having to remove the bungees on every lens change. Thanks for your continued support.
