Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Mine arrived this morning here in England!

I had to go to my local Royal Mail Post Office to pay 12.73 (4.73 VAT and 8 Admin Charge) before they would release it - but no worries.

I'm very pleased with it. Can't wait to try it out in anger on a sunny day...sun is forecast round here tomorrow :-)

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Is everyone receiving a shammy with theirs too? I hope so considering how much extra we'll have to pay!

Yes the chamois came with mine.

Used the c-cup last night at a BTS shoot which was mostly handheld. It was excellent and definitely makes the EVF a viable viewfinder. It's also gives a great 3rd point of contact when handheld. I wear glasses full time and with the chamois it was very comfortable.

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

I've used it on a couple of shoots. It is a good addition to the camera and well designed. It's a real shame the magnify function doesn't work in the VF as that would have made the C-cup a vital piece of kit.

The C-cup is a vital piece of kit. It never comes off my camera. Close your LCD screen and the mag function will work.

No heated eye cup for this camera?

Happy Canada Day!

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Gary Huff, I didn't know that. That does indeed make it a vital piece of kit although opening and closing the screen all the time might get a bit tedious! I'm going to experiment more with the VF and c-cup and see if works for a large part of a run and gun shoot.

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

My only complaint is that the glue holding the Chamoise leather has proven to be inadequate as the leather has moved away from the rubber as a result of opening the LCD, even carefully. That said, a very worthwhile addition.

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Finally sacked the Zacuto rig and replaced it with Andrew's eyecup. A world of difference. Thanks for doing it.

Re: Custom Eyecup for the C100

Been meaning to say, I've been using this C-Cup for over a year, all across Indonesia, Japan, Tokyo, and China. The thing rules. If you're on the fence, just get it.

Only thing is I wish it didn't collect dust so badly, but it's VERY easy to clean. The thing flung off in a desert esque scenario in Indonesia, and man, the whole thing was covered...but a bit of water, clean as new.

Do it!
