I won't use a LCD screen for a viewfinder sooo. . Hoodman?.
 
I (myself) cant use a 3.5" screen to do a focus or even properly view my whole picture , i would need at least 7"+ to USE a lcd screen to do my work, preferably a 42" :-)

If i get a X1 instead of a X3 (with the real loupie over the LCD screen)
would the Hoodman Loupie thing be a Kludgey mess added to LCD or would it functionally view the whole screen and still have diopter focus like the X3 has.
EX1 KIT-Hoodman Corporation
(3 part hoodman loupe contraption)

Working out of Seating in many locations, a BACK viewer is not as usuable as a side viewer.
with the big long Loupie over the X3 does that put the human ON the side of the camera or still quite a bit to the back of the camera?
also i really dont like 1/2" micro viewers, but i wont ask for a high res B&W CRT cause thats not gonna happen :-)

I have found the Hoodman HoodLoupe for the EX1 to be extremely useful - one can view the entire screen and have a diopter adjustment (my right eye is not so good so this really helps). There are a number of threads on dvinfo about people choosing the right shoulder mount and many people want to make sure it works with the HoodLoupe first before choosing it (I know I did).
