Hoodman Live View Kit for Mirrorless Cameras


The Live View Kit for Mirrorless Cameras from Hoodman consists of a mounting base which fits 3-3.2" LCD screens, and an optical module with a built-in +/- 3 diopter that has three glass elements. The adjustable base plate centers the HoodLoupe against camera's LCD screen. This kit enables photographers and videographers to view glare-free outdoor images on DSLR live view screens. Once attached, the kit enables images to be seen more clearly because the HoodLoupe Base blocks extraneous light from entering and washing out the LCD screen, making it easier to check focus, exposure, and settings when shooting outside in bright sunlight.

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.

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.

The HCP2 Mirrorless 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 HCP2 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.
