        Only used it for a few wedding shoots and it started to fall apart. The plastic broke around the eyecup holder and it no longer holds the eyecup. This is by far the biggest waste of money.

            Had it over one weekend and the cushion that abuts the lcd became unglued. This loupe is much too expensvie to fall apart after only a weekend's use. Returned this time to BH, and they handled the returned beautifully.

                    I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this item - and I was fully prepared to return it if it ended up being a cheap plastic toy. But I was very happy to see that the unit is well built and thought out. At first I thought I just needed a hood to keep the sun off the LCD. But the magnifying loupe is actually really helpful to check focus. Also, keeping your eye pressed up against the unit allows for more stable handheld footage. The metal bracket that the unit mounts with also provides a rigid grip point for the camera.
