Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Got mine in yesterday and was able to use it on a wedding shoot.... actually makes the C100 viable outdoors and works great as an additional point of contact!

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Great to read these initial reports. Mine is en-route to the UK and I hope to have it very soon. Sounds like Andrew did a first class job - but I was always sure of that by the way he approached the whole project and how he kept us regularly updated/stayed focus on meeting his stated targets.

And then of course there was THAT video... See post #41...but that was the only time I got a little worried!!!

Only joking ;-)

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

It has completely replaced my Z-Finder. And, better still, it is always on the camera.

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Mine is also enroute just in time to help in these sunnier days. How are you folk finding the EVF for focusing and exposure?

Tbh I've been depending in the LCD with a petrol sun shade on bright days but it's a struggle focusing. So I'm looking forward to trying Andrews C-cup. (That doesn't sound good!)

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Very glad to hear that you guys are liking them and I can't wait for my overseas friends to join the party. Drew, I imagine you've heard enough from me on all this, but I'll just add that catching focus is really easy with the contrast cranked up a bit. I use the standard peaking settings on white, which I find much easier to use than red or blue or whatever. White peaking doesn't distract at all - it just looks like a contrasty image, and the plane of focus is ever-so-slightly highlighted. Give it a try!

As for exposure, I rely pretty heavily on zebras. As I said I've got my contrast cranked a bit, and depending on the scene and the profile, I can't always tell where things are landing. 100 IRE zebras outside is a great way to keep your bearings.

Thanks so much for seeing this through and delivering such a solid product!! Anyone want to buy my slightly used Z-Finder? Really!

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

just got and fitted mine. feels very solid, snug as heck. the ziptie is a nice addition though don't see myself using it.

it is a bit of a pain to get on though, even moreso for the chamois, but if you plan on having it live on your camera than it's not a big deal.

overall it's indeed an improvement for the c100, but i wish andrew would have went for the more traditional oval/recessed shape. i have to tilt my head a decent bit to get full contact. could just be my head shape though.YMMV. There's enough material i'll probably trim a bit of the left side to get a better face match.

Good work andrew. this is my first kickstarter delivery

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Hi Bill. We haven't received a survey response from you with your address. Please complete the survey on Kickstarter and I'll get one to the post office tomorrow.

You should be receiving emails with project updates and survey requests and reminders from Kickstarter - have you not been getting these?

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

No :( I just went into Kickstarter and verified my address for you. You would think Kickstarter would send you an e-mail or something. I guess I'll have to tell Jennifer Lawrence, Al Pacino, Meryl Streep and my 200 extras to to find something to do until my C-cup arrives...

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Looks like they're coming to the UK on a donkey! It made it from Austin TX to Chicago so far. Hope that donkey can fly :)

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Hey Dave. The USPS international tracking isn't very good or detailed, but it looks like they are just now starting to land in the UK and Europe. Tracking often just moves from Chicago to "Delivered," and hopefully that will be the status of your package soon.

All the Kickstarter packages went out just before a holiday here, so the mail system was down for two days just after I shipped. We're sitting at just over one week right now, and as I said they are starting to reach people's doorsteps. That ain't bad. I just expedited a C-Cup to Italy, which is going to take about a week, and that cost $88. Since Kickstarter only allows one price for international shipping, I decided most folks would rather go for $8 than $88+ even if they have to sit tight another day or two.

Anyway, they should be arriving soon, my international friends. I hope you like them. Please let me know what you think.

Mine arrived in Spain yesterday. Looks good although I haven't had a chance to try it yet.
