    Hoodman HLK1 Reviews

    Link Retractable HoodLoupe Lanyard is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I am a pro photographer and use the 3 inch hoodman loupes religiously for outdoor shooting to see skin detail, etc. over the past 5 years, I have broken 4 of the regular neck lanyards that hang the loupe due to the swinging of the loupe during shooting, lighting, etc. the rubber ring that holds the standard lanyards to the viewer all break eventually. With this retractable lanyard I can keep the loupe on my jacket, belt or shirt and just pull it to the camera screen as needed. Well made, does what it's supposed to do and affordable. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered! This little unit can be clipped to a tab on one's vest or belt loop or it can be clipped to a tripod hook for quick access. Any of those solutions beats hanging it from one's neck, which may already be crowded with a camera strap, eyeglasses strap or strap for binoculars, for example.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I found this product I found this product quite by accident and ordered it immediately. I hate things hanging around my neck but I have to have my Hoodloupe with me when I shoot outdoors. So this lanyard is perfect for me! I highly recommend it. It is very well made as one would expect from this vendor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No question a valuable addition to your hood loop This allow me to wear my hood loop hanging from my vest, since I also often wear my binocular, they would get tangle and irritate me, now it hang of to the side, out of the way and ready to use with in reach

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from MUCH Better Than Around-The-Neck Lanyard I just spent the week in Grand Teton National Park using my Hoodman Hoodloupe extensively, and this was my first time out trying my new Link Retractable Hoodloupe Lanyard instead of the around-the-neck version that comes with the Hoodloupe. Bottom line is I found the retractable form factor SO much more convenient and out-of-the-way. I spent a lot of time crouched on the ground shooting wildflowers in full daylight and needed to use the Hoodloupe frequently to compose shots using camera Live View. I found the retractable lanyard clipped to my front belt loop was just not there until I needed it, then I would grab and pull it into position over the viewfinder, then let it go and it would quickly snap back out of the way when I was done. I find the neck lanyard often dangles in the way as I lean over and just requires more attention to keep it out of the way when not in use. Plus, I hang reading glasses around my neck when shooting which frequently tangles with the Hoodloupe neck lanyard. This retractable version is superior for me, but minus one star for the size -- it is pretty big and I would find it even more useful if the size profile could be reduced. A minor issue that does not affect my overall satisfaction with the product, though. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old ladies like me need this :-) Love it. I wasn't taking out my hood loupe before because it was annoying to keep stowing somewhere. Now it just stays around my neck. Me and my presbyopia (age-related farsightedness!) are very happy. Reading glasses for your camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. The Hoodman Retractable Lanyard makes having the loupe convenient to use. It keeps it out of the way but ready when you need it.
