600D / T3i Swivel LCD Hood Loupe Solution

I was looking for a hood to shade the LCD on my 600D, but couldn't find one that worked well with the swivel LCD. They all require some form of attachment to the LCD body that subsequently prevents the LCD from being closed back in, or don't allow the LCD to swivel at all - which seems pointless.

However, I found it fairly straightforward to buy a Neewer (aka GGS, Perfect) hood with a folding 3x loupe and then add some stick-on Velco strapes to attach it around the LCD.

Works really well, and I love having both a hood and a 3x loupe.

The 3x loupe combined with Magic Lantern Focus Peaking really makes focusing via live view so much easier.

Obviously this would work well with a 60D
