Re: Anyone know of a more comfortable eyecup for the NEX7

I remember looking around for an alternative eye cup for my 7, and couldn't come up with anything, either.

Seems like the only option at the moment is a DIY modification of an existing eye cup.

Here's one with a Canon F1 cup.

The five-part video proceeds ponderously slowly; it could have been edited down to about 10 minutes, but he takes a hour. Skip around/fast forward, you'll get the idea.

Basically, you cut and remove some of the rubber of the larger cup so it mates well with the frame of the Sony eyepiece, and glue them together. It's fairly straightforward, but a bit tedious to do the cuts carefully enough so you don't butcher the rubber you want to remain intact.
