Hoodman HLVKIT overview

  • 1Description

The HLVKIT Live View Kit for DSLR Cameras from Hoodman consists of two mounting bases that fit 3" and 3.2" LCD Screens, and an optical module with a built-in +/- 3 diopter that has three glass elements. Furthermore, the base plate has height adjustment to center your hood loupe against the screen.

Once the HLVKIT is attached, it enables you to see your image better because the base blocks extraneous light from entering and hitting your LCD Screen. Therefore, you're able to check your focus, exposure, and settings when you're shooting outside in bright sunlight.

  • HoodLoupe Outdoor LCD Viewfinder for 3.0" Screens

    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 all screens up to 3.0" in size, as well as all Nikon LCDs except for those on the D5, D750, D500, and D5600 cameras. 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. The HoodLoupe is compatible with all of Hoodman's live view mounting plates to allow for hands-free use. As a bonus, a lanyard is included for wearing the unit around your neck.

  • HoodLoupe 3.2" Base for LCD Screens

    Use your Hoodman loupe on cameras featuring LCD screens up to 3.2" in size when you attach it to this HoodLoupe 3.2" Base. The latches on the loupe ensure a quick, secure connection, and can be easily undone to allow you to switch bases if you want to use a camera with an LCD of a different size. Additionally, the base is compatible with all Hoodman live view mounting plates.

  • HoodLoupe Teardrop Eyecup

    An upgrade for all HoodLoupe eyecups, the Hoodman HoodLoupe Teardrop Eyecup blocks out ambient light for improved visibility when looking at your camera's LCD screen. The tear drop shape is a natural fit for the contour of your head, creating a complete light seal and offering added comfort. The eyecup emulates eyepieces used on high-end motion picture cameras.

    You can mount the Teardrop in seconds by removing your original eyecup and pushing the Teardrop over the viewing end of the HoodLoupe. Since it's mounted on a slip ring, the eyecup stays in place while you're adjusting your diopter and can also spin to right or left eye position.

  • HCP DSLR Camera Custom Finder Base Plate for HoodLoupe

    The HCP DSLR Custom Finder Plate for HoodLoupe from Hoodman is an adjustable mounting solution for 3" or 3.2" HoodLoupes. The base plate features a camera mounting screw and dual 1/4"-20 tripod sockets. Connected to it is an upright column that attaches to the optional HoodLoupe. The on-board hex tool enables horizontal and vertical adjustments.

    The horizontal quick-release bar attached to the upright column can be easily moved in and out using the brass knob, allowing you to attach or remove the loupe from the assembly. An H3.0 adapter is included to allow mounting the plate to an older HoodLoupe that doesn't have the 1/4"-20 connection. The HCP base plate features anti-twist bars, a hand strap slot, and a camera sling strap attachment point. It is constructed in the USA from milled black anodized aluminum.

Hoodman HLVKIT reviews

HLVKIT Live View Kit for DSLR Cameras is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds a new dimension to my camera's utility. This piece of kit is extremely well built and adjusts perfectly to my Nikon D7000.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from has some problems It is well made and sound.� However, the hood is too close to a vertical bar and interferes with snapping the eye cup on and off.� Also, the optical quality of the eye cup image seems a little soft to me.� Now I have the rather large mirrorless Panasonic GH5s.� Maybe the Hoodman HLVKIT for mirrorless cameras might work better for me.� But so far, people at Hoodman and at B&H have not replied definitively one way or the other.� I plan to return this item.
