Greetings All,

I just bought my second HoodEye, a version that fit's my Canon 7D. This simple device makes seeing so much better, and makes taking photos so much more enjoyable. Since seeing well is the key to superior images, you should not hesitate for a second longer a get this eye cup. As the 7D has a large LCD screen, the protrusion over the screen for review is minimal. You can swivel the long side of the cup totally out of the way if preferred. All in all a must have addition to your d SLR.

The Good; Great for out-door bright light, built well, and easy to attach.

The not so good; Seems to block part of the top of the LCD when viewing photos or shooting video, being that with most DSLR you can only shoot video using the LCD, at least that is a little annoying.
When shooting photos horizontally to vertical the eye cup need be rotated with a free hand so it can be annoying when changing back and forth.

Overall; It is something to have around if you are doing a lot of shooting outside in bright light, but not something that I would leave on a camera with a large LCD, or when doing a lot of fast changing horizontal to vertical.

    Comments about Hoodman HoodEye for Canon EOS 1D Mark III / 1Ds Mark III / 1D Mark IV / 5D Mark III / 7D Cameras:

    I like using a hood because reducing the outside light while I'm gazing into the viewfinder makes me feel more connected with the scene helping me concentrate and be less distracted. Also it's easier to see the info displays in the viewfinder while working outside in bright sun.

    The hood itself rotate in it's plastic mount so when you shoot verticals you can still gain from the benefits.

    It fits securely so don't worry about it falling off.

          Though this accessory seems somewhat expensive, it's not something that will wear out and need replacing. And it helps reduce interfering outside light. It's worth it. I have one on both of my cameras.

            Much more comfortable than the stock eyepiece. I shoot primarily in landscape orientation but the option to simply rotae the cup is nice. Smudges on the LCD are reduced as well. I haven't tried to remove it yet, doesn't look like it will be easily done.

            Comments about Hoodman HoodEye for Canon EOS 1D Mark III / 1Ds Mark III / 1D Mark IV / 5D Mark III / 7D Cameras:

            I had a gift card and wanted to try this out so I decided to get it. It arrived promptly as do all of my BH purchases. It was easy to install(put on) and has a secure fit to my 5D mkIII. The eye piece is rubber that is soft on the eye area and it also swivels, good for righty, lefty or shooting portrait style. It blocks most light and good for day or night-time shooting situations. I gave it 4 stars because I thought it could probably extend out a little further to help avoid face contact with the back of the camera and it does interfere a little with the screen on top but it does the job and I'm glad I got it. The photo used for BH is very accurate.

            Comments about Hoodman HoodEye for Canon EOS 1D Mark III / 1Ds Mark III / 1D Mark IV / 5D Mark III / 7D Cameras:

            I really like this eye cup. Much better isolation and clarity. Easy to rotate for portrait or other eye. A couple of things to be aware of: first the rubber is a dust magnet, and second is that it is not an extender and does not keep the lcd free of smudges. That said, I would definitely recommend it. Good purchase.

                Anytime I am shooting, especially in sunny situations this is a must...so I just leave it on my camera. It is a lot more sturdy than other brands I have purchased for other cameras. I would buy this over and over!!

                        Most effective in brilliant sun; otherwise not so much.
                        Replaces standard eyepiece pad, so quick on and off not seamless (a bit clumsy).

                            The HoodEye cup fits perfectly with the vello Snap-On LCD Screen Protector for Canon 7D. Blocks out annoying light, I love that it spins for either left or right eye orientation, also landscape and portrait. With the LCD screen protector on, it appears to hold it out a little further so my cheek doesn't touch the LCD at all. No complaints, just wished I'd discovered it sooner ;)

                              I have light sensitive eyes and needed a better way to see images through the Canon 7D eye piece... The eyehood keeps out light and fits my eye perfectly... it also keeps my cheek away from the viewing screen, which keeps it cleaner; a great purchase that makes a big difference.

                                  What a difference this eyepiece makes compared to the original one. No more stray light bouncing back in to my eyes. More importantly, no more stray light throwing off the metering system. I'm using this on my 7D, it seems to be much more sensitve to stray light. Another important benefit: you feel so much more connected to the camera. The camera feels more like an extension of your body instead of something pressed up against your face.

                                    This works well either for left or right eye, just twist it. It shields the eye from stray light, allowing for better concentration.

                                        Easy to install on my Canon 7D. Great product. Cuts out the light from the outside.

                                          A great tool for elimiating ambient light in one's peripheral vision which can be distracting when shooting.
                                          Because it rotates, it works well for left and right eye dominant photographers, as well as shooting verticals.

                                            I use this to keep the glare out of my eyepiece.
