Comments about Hoodman Custom Finder Kit for 3.2" Camera LCD Screens:

I'm using this on my Nikon d7100. The build quality seems to be top notch. Its the optical quality that can be annoying. My copy has this weird blur around the edges and even in the center. I'm never really confident that I've nailed my focus. I also like how this creates another point of contact to help steady the camera.

      Comments about Hoodman Custom Finder Kit for 3.2" Camera LCD Screens:

      At 55 my eyesight is not getting better. The diopter on my Nikon viewfinder is at it's limit. With the hoodman I can view the LCD without putting on my glasses. I can actually check the photo. I wear it around my neck and use it on the go. With the mounting hardware which is excellent, I can use it for video or in the studio for portraits or stilllife.

        I've bought about 5 dinky other hoods that break apart & aren't worth it. Finally gave in and splurged with this thing. BEST. DECISION. EVER. It's amazing, and improves your shooting x 100. Just buy it. Why haven't you clicked BUY yet?

        Works Well if You Shoot at Eye Level

        By Marshall Arts Media

        from Dallas

        Comments about Hoodman Custom Finder Kit for 3.2" Camera LCD Screens:

        This really helps if you are shooting video at eye level outdoors but if you need to shoot low or high angle you need to get a viewfinder. I find that it is a little difficult to tighten the loop when you slide it into place.

          Comments about Hoodman Custom Finder Kit for 3.2" Camera LCD Screens:

          Well made body and bracket but could be better.The glass in the diopter couldhave been better as it has some kind of edge distoration which prevents the user from seeing the entire LCD display clear as lens glass should be, so I suspect cheap glass was used.

          Custom Finder Kit for 3.2" LCD on my Nikon D610 fits perfectly. Easy to install and the Finder can be removed quickly if needed. Excellent magnification of the entire LCD screen. It has a large range of diopter adjustment for any eye focus. The Hoodman Custom Finder Kit is a must for shooting video with any DSLR camera with a LCD display. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is that the rubber eyepiece rotates with diopter adjustment.

            tried on nikon d800, does not work as expected:
            when zoomed in, image is not really clear. there is problem when turning eyepiece adjust ring (rubber piece would rotate at same time, which is unwanted). It does not tilt. it is hard to hand hold the camera once this finder kit mounted.
