Hoodman Cinema Kit Pro: HoodLoupe, HoodMag, and HoodCrane
|March 2, 2012||Posted by admin under Accessories|
This kit brings together three separate Hoodman products: the HoodLoupe 3.0, which is a 1:1 magnification loupe; the HoodMag 3.0, a 3x magnifier that attaches to HoodLoupe; and HoodCrane, an adjustable arm that slides into the camera hot shoe and holds the HoodLoupe over the camera’s LCD screen.
Hoodman adds a smart hot shoe mount for using the HoodLoupe 3.0 during DSLR Video Capture. The new mount is called HoodCrane. HoodCrane is available with the Cinema Kit Pro which includes… HoodLoupe 3.0, HoodMAG – a new magnifying video eyecup for your Hood – Loupe 3.0 and the HoodCrane. If you already have theHoodLoupe 3.0, the HoodCrane and HoodMAG are also sold separately.

It beats having a third hand!
Trying to shoot video of an Anhinga and an alligator recently I could barely tell when I had good framing because of all the glare and reflections on the LCD screen.
This device solves that problem extremely well when shooting live view or video on my Canon 7D. It also flips out of the way easily when I want to use the regular viewfinder.
Works great and I’m very happy with it!
