    Hoodman HSLRM reviews

    Cinema Strap is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea, doesn't work so well If you want to attach the Hoodman loupe to the back of your camera, this accessory is their solution. I found it difficult to attach and if you want to take it off and put it on fairly frequently, a pain to use. The reason is that you have to manipulate the rubber strings and pull them through a clamp. I assume the design is this way to accommodate cameras with straps. But, I found it to be simpler to just hold the loupe to the back and carry it on the included lanyard around my neck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed for Live-View & Hood Loop Holds the hood-loupe in position when doing live-view and video with D90, D300s, D700, & D3s. Without this you will have to hold this to the rear of the camera (somehow) while you are manipulating the camera controls. If you have a nose like an aardvark then you don't need this; you can hold the hood-loupe on with your nose. If you don't, then you DO need this. Get it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OVERPRICED 2 black rubber bands + 45 seconds of time = THIS PRODUCT This item should have been included with the hoodloupe but the company decides to sell it for 60x what it is worth. I bought it to keep a professional looking rig, but i also made the exact thing out of just 2 rubber bands. RIDICULOUS

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for live view If you own a Hoodman loupe and plan to use live view for close ups to judge depth of field you need a strap to hold it in place. It does add an extra step to your set up but I never am in a hurry when doing macro work. It takes a little maneuvering to get it in place when your camera uses an L Bracket quick release but I found the strap stretches enough on one side which I never change. Then it is simple to slip the other strap over the opposite side and snug it up. It is all worth it when you see how much your macro shots improve.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Much Better Than Nothing I use the strap to hold my Hoodman Loupe in place just to shoot in Live View mode. Since I only shoot in Live View a few times on any shoot I gladly suffer the inconvenience of putting the loupe on and off for those times. Otherwise I keep the loupe on a neck strap or in a pocket. The Cinema Strap holds the loupe in place fairly well but even at its tightest can't hold it rock steady.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works OK I knew this rubber band was going to be over-priced but at the time it was the best solution for fixing this to my camera. It does do a good job holding the Loupe to the camera. The downside is that I cannot easily switch between using this for video and looking through the normal eye piece for shots. I can fiddle with it to get it to tuck out of the way but its less then ideal. Hoodman has come out with a more expensive hot shoe mounted holder that may work better.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awkward but useful This is fairly awkward to use and light leaks in from one corner, but it's allowed me to view photos in bright sunlight, which was impossible before. I keep it on my camera pulled to the bottom, and pull it back over the LCD to review the image. Then back to the bottom. This back and forth is easier than detaching it. Works better without a strap on the camera.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tangled Up and Blue If you think paying three hundred dollars for a plastic loupe with some metal on it is crazy, you might be tempted to go this route and buy the Hoodman loupe and these Silly Strings. While, in theory, the Cinema Strap might work, the truth is that it doesn't, at least not very well. The strings get in the way, and you just can't keep the loupe from sliding off of the monitor. The eye-loupe connection is an important part of camera stabilization, and puts too much pressure on the loupe for these stretchy strings to keep it in place. Save your money and buy the loupe that starts with a Z
