    LCD Viewer Loupe Cheap
    I've always had trouble viewing the LCD on my camera in bright light. No matter hat they tell you--you can't. Hoodman sells a viewer loupe for pressing against the lcd screen to view it clearly with very slight magnification. I priced it and found that this little loupe would cost about 100 dollars with shipping. I made a loupe by putting a little soft foapm padding around an old fashioned simple slide viewer with the translucent back removed.It cost less than $5 if you can find them.

    I mounted it on a neck strap using a rubber band.

    Maybe we should start a DIY forum!
