One other thing - you're shooting with a 7D, right? That means a very, very narrow AoV. One challenge you'll face is simply locating the subject you've seen with your eyes once you start looking through the VF. When you attach the hood, try putting the attachment screw straight up, then use it like a gun sight to pre-aim.
That's avery nice Trick....... thanks
And free, too! A non-free (but not too expensive) more sophisticated alternative is a red-dot sight with a Weaver-mount hotshoe adapter. I have that setup, works nicely.
