Hoodman H32MB Overview

Check composition, focus, and settings on your camera's monitor in bright sunlight with the HoodLoupe Outdoor LCD Viewfinder from Hoodman. It's compatible with most screens up to 3.2" in size. The finder attaches to a HoodLoupe base and then fits right over the monitor to block out excess light.

Three glass elements ensure that the image you see through the loupe is bright, clear, and sharp. If your vision is less than perfect, the +/- 3 diopter lets you make the necessary corrections by simply turning the eyepiece in or out.

Save your money! Not worth the plastic its made of.

The cheap plastic latch that hols the two halves together broke after a minor fall. Thus rendering useless unless you tape the two halves together... The old model which was one piece I used in the field as pro photog for over a decade, this one lasted all of maybe two weeks. Shame

I have looked at this item for a long while trying to decide if I really needed it. Now that I have it, I can say I needed it. I am a landscape, and nature photographer so I am outside a lot when I shoot. This really helps me see what I am shooting. I love it!!!

This is a necessity living in Florida! If you want legit tack sharp photos without wrestling with bright sunlight this little gem is certainly well worth it! I was a bit optimistic at first with the price point but after receiving it I have zero regrets. It's a solid, quality build. It definitely eliminates any question of nailing that premo pic! Thanks Hoodman!

Trick To Focusing

By Russ
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-09

I previously posted a review on this product but after using for a few weeks I confirmed that maintaining focus while using with a zoom lens was problematic. After contacting them today and explaining the problem they told me that rather using the focus ring to fine tune the view of the camera settings, I needed to bring up the camera menus on the screen, then focus on the screen and that the Hoodman Loupe would then hold SCREEN FOCUS throughout the zoom range. Looks like this is going to solve the problem. Remember: bring up the menu screen every time you turn on the camera on and focus on the menu! * My loupe is mounted on the camera back and stays there. I don't know about using the loupe intermittently and potential focus issues while trying to zoom following a bird in flight.

Excellent quality. Bought this one as a work-around until I can get my video camera viewfinder fixed. Critical for any outdoor photo/video shoot.

Comfortably Clear View

By Russ

Was skeptical about such need or comfort, not using the viewfinder as usual, but after a couple weeks I'm convinced that the fit is even more comfortable. That said, the ability to easily see settings, and the focus screen content is fabulous. It is easier not only to spot meter but also to tweak the focus a bit without auto interference. Add the enhanced diopter correction over that offered by the camera and my 71 year old eyes are mush relieved and images prove to be sharper. I feel in more control of the end result than I have since the start of the digital evolution.

Awesome

I debated on if I really wanted to spend the money on this with it being $85. I shoot outside golden hour family portraits and there are so many times where I just can't see the shots I'm taking because of the glare. This thing is a game changer as is well worth the money. I would highly recommend for any outdoor photographer.

I have canon 5d4 and 7d2. No problem using this for both cameras if hand held?
Asked by: Raymond
Works great on both. There is a little less room on the 7d2 body below the LCD, but I don't have any light entering and it seals fine. Until I just looked, I never realized it was different from the 5d4.
