LCD viewer loupe

hi, I think you are looking for a 3" LCD screen viewer loupe. There are lots of them on ebay and Amazon. One brand is HOODMAN which I think is too expensive. There are copies for sale which are just as good but much cheaper. Search this forum for more information...put 3" LCD screen viewer loupe in search function.

I think $100 is too expensive, but I recently got one of these on sale at B&H for around $60, if I remember right. Seems well built and has been useful:
