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.

HoodEye Cup

Comments about Hoodman Hoodeye Eyecup for Canon 5D Mark III 7D, 1D, and 1DS Mark III Models:

This is the first time ever since I bought my camera that I tried something like this instrumental piece of technology. It will definitely make your life easier when the rays of the son are being blocked from the side of your eye. ONE MAJOR disappointment is that the circular space available for the eye is not as big as the original viewfinder that comes with your camera. You will lose a very small very tiny little space of real estate when it comes to the eye seeing the corners of your viewfinder. This means to see them you really need to push your eye inside to really make sure you see everything that is in the extremity. Very minor for me because I'm already use to it and I don't see myself going back to the standard viewfinder that came with my dslr canon 7d Mark II .

    This was a great fit on the 7d, and does its intended purpose very well. I am definitely able to see things more clearly through the viewfinder without battling blasting sunlight.

    Very simple to use and adjust, spin it around to where you want and it's ready to go

        The Hoodeye was easy to fit on my 5D3 and 1D4. Clips on securely and is still easy to remove. The 'wing' blocks side light well. Wish that I had purchased this earlier.

            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.

                    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.

                    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.

                            An easily affordable product that assists to block ambient light and focus on subject matter.

                                Be careful with your sellection. This is only for EOS 1D Mark III / 1Ds Mark III / 1D Mark IV / 5D Mark III / 7D Cameras.

                                ****NOT FOR 5D MK2***

                                Still not 100% positive with eyeglasses. Have to mash lens against it.
                                Most effective in brilliant sun; otherwise not so much.
                                Replaces standard eyepiece pad, so quick on and off not seamless (a bit clumsy).

                                  For me this HoodEye gives me a better view of the viewfinder screen. Well worth the price, very comfortable and blocks peripheral light and distractions.
