Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

No better time than now Glen! Still a few days left on the Kickstarter. I would add a link but my phone won't seem to allow me... its in this thread and I think you can just Google: Miller C100

Which is pretty cool!

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

How does the kickstarter work, does everyone who backs you get a c-cup?

Hi John. Kickstarter works by offering incentives, which backers can choose depending on how much they donate. In this case I only have the one incentive (The C-Cup) and to choose that you have to donate at least $40 (add $8 if international shipping is required).

So in this case, everyone who backs the project for at least $40 will get a C-Cup.

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Woohoo, got my C100 earlier this week, loving it so far and actually was pleasantly surprised by the EVF, I've read so much bad press about it that I was expecting something much worse. Looking forward to getting my c-cup now :)

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

That's just exactly how I felt John!

I just yesterday 3D printed the latest design, with some improvements. I requested one more change, and I expect we'll be placing an order with the manufacturer at the beginning of next week. I'll send out a detailed project update via KS once that is done, and hopefully we will have some hard dates for shipping by that time.

Thanks!

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Excellent news! Can't wait to get mine - will need it as the sun is now shining in England so some outside shooting is called for ...when I get my C100 back (it's getting the Dual Pixel AF upgrade done this week).

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Let us know how you get on with the AF upgrade, I'm on the fence about it just now

If you're ever trying to follow people / things in unpredictable unrehearsed situations the AF can be a major benefit. I've only really had it screw up on me once, but to be fair that was user error, my fault, not that of the camera.

I've no regrets getting the upgrade done.

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

I received my C-Cup in the mail yesterday. Andrew did an amazing job with the design and engineering on this. It looks and feels like a high quality, polished product. It fits perfectly and securely. It's soft enough to be comfortable but still provides a solid third point of contact to help keep shots steady when shooting hand held. Overall I'm really impressed and think this is one of those must have accessories if you shoot on the C-100. Thanks Andrew for taking the time and effort to design and manufacture it and for getting it out on schedule!
