Cavision MHE52 overview

  • 1Description

The Cavision MHE52 is a monitor hood specifically designed for the Sony HDR-TG1 pocket handicam. The unique design of the hood allows it to double as a viewfinder converter, greatly improving focus ability and frame composition. With use of optional adapters, this viewfinder can also be fitted to cameras with 3.5" and 3" LCDs, including the Canon 5D Mark II and other DSLRs.

The lens on the viewfinder, like all optical elements, by its nature magnifies light and thus will also magnify the sun's rays; therefore, leaving the viewfinder on the camera in direct sunlight may cause damage to the LCD. The manufacturer will not be held liable for damage caused by improper use of its products.

Cavision MHE52 reviews

MHE52 Monitor Hood/Viewfinder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my camcorder This viewfinder has increased the quality of my sports videos 1000%! I used to miss most of the action during my children's soccer games due to the small size of my camcorder LCD screen and glare on most gamedays. This viewfinder blocks out most daylight and magnifies the LCD image making it easy to follow the action (and the ball) during all of our important sporting events. I am using this viewfinder on a Sony HDR-CX7 and even though it wasn't designed for this camcorder it works great. There is a small gap (1/16 inch) between the LCD screen and viewfinder at the top and bottom but it really doesn't effect my ability to shoot great videos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from helped me customize my camcorder. I own a Panasonic ag ac160 and it is a great camcorder. The only problem is as a former ENG shooter, I have missed the form factor of a shoulder mount camera. When I'm on sticks looking through the rear mounted viewfinder it is not a problem and if I'm not in bright light the LCD is fine. However if I'm shooting in sunlight and want to grab the camera and get some B roll I can wedge the cam against my shoulder and using this magnified viewfinder stapped to the LCD I can go portable and with the $5.00 optional adaptor it fits my 3 and a half inch screen perfectly. I have to be careful not to let the sun shine into the viewfinder as the magnified light can damage the viewfinder. It's not like a real shoulder mount but it's OK for grabbing a few shots. Without the adaptor, the viewfinder fits my consumer cam which only has an LCD like so many cameras today.
