The Kudos Ever since purchasing my Hoodman Loupe about two months ago, I wouldn't do any handheld photography without it. You can imagine my disappointment when the carrying case containing the Loupe came off its belt clasp on my first day of vacation in Turkey last month. Unfortunately, I was not able to find it. A manufacturing defect of the sort that occasionally happens in every industry caused this to happen. A few days ago I had an enjoyable conversation with Lou (or is it Lew?) of the Hoodman Corporation about it. He promised to send me a replacement free of charge and it arrived today. Based on the quality of the Hoodman Loupe and the terrific customer service, I wouldn't hesitate to do business with Hoodman in the future. The News During our conversation he mentioned that Hoodman hopes to have the Loupe that fits the larger LCD of the D3 and the D300 on the market in the next 45 days. I haven't read the specs of the newly announced D700, but I think the Loupe will also fit that camera. That's got to be great news for owners of those cameras.
