    Nikon D800 focusing hood/magnifier

    Can anyone recommend a focusing hood/magnifier for a nikon D800. When in bright sunlight i find it difficult to use live view on the LCD screen.

    Any loupe will work. I used one from my 4x5 days for a while, but now use the Hoodman. It nicely blocks out the stray light. I now need to figure out how to hold it in place so I can use both hands with my tilt-shift lenses while watching the screen. There are fancy (expensive) ones by Zacuto as well.

    The 'Peak' 4X Lupe is light and very well made and the optics are first rate. I use it for both my IQ180 and 800e. Even though it is square in size its small enough to fit into a pocket.
