Flat round eyepiece cup for A7R3?
I'm looking for a flat eyepiece cup for the A7R3. Fujis X cameras like the X-E3 or X-T30 use that kind I want to add to my A7R3. Since I wear glasses a flatter eye piece would allow me to see a notch more of the EVF and would spare me 1 or 2 mm of body depth.
I could only find bigger eyepieces or replacements that look the same as the original eyepiece.
Has anyone found a better (flat) eyepiece for the A7?
Cant find anything either. Wonder if you were to cut the shape from foam/rubber/neoprene and attach it on would it work to get your eye closer. If i attempted this it would certainly look a bit rough...
The JJC eyecup is pretty good (easy to find on ebay and amazon etc), but you'll have to cut the protruding "side shield" off to make it round and flat. It cuts easily with scissors. I did that, and it works perfectly.
Sounds like a better idea. Do you have a photo of the finished trimmed eyepiece installed on your camera?
Sorry, just the parts at the mo - they kick around in my bag mostly. I only use this for one very specific problem when the sun shines in under my glasses from the left and makes it difficult to see the EVF. Here's a phone snap. The cut eyecup has been removed from the camera eyepiece attachment here - I tried using that for something else and broke it.
Thanks for posting the image of the parts. Confirms that I have ordered the wrong JJC item
Will see if I can successfully slice some of the silicon off these anyway:
Not sure what kind of photography you do but if you, or other readers, use a tripod for landscapes please consider using a focusing cloth. It makes using either the viewfinder or lcd screen much better, particularly for eyeglass wearers. You could try this with a black T shirt to see if you like this approach. All the best, john
Hoodman have a glasses version of their eyepieces.
I got this for my A7RII and it fits perfectly. A little softer than the Hoodman (which I also tried), but it does still block a tiny bit of the EVF (I don't wear glasses).
