Sony FDR-AX100 eyecup

If you have an AX100, my #1 accessory purchase would be an eyecup for the viewfinder. I found one on eBay that fit my camera perfectly and it makes a huge difference, especially since I wear glasses.

Mine was $39.95 on eBay. It's the one made for the Sony PXW-X70, but it fits the AX100 perfectly. $40 for a piece of rubber seemed a little high -- mine is a Sony so cheaper third-party eyecups may be out there -- but it's usefulness makes it easily worth it.

Anyway, just wanted to let those researching before getting the camera or new owners (like me) know about this.

If you want, let me know and I'll post the link where I bought it, but a quick eBay search will get you there. Can't remember if there are other sellers, but mine was delivered very quickly.

If you can post the link I'd appreciate it. I just put a (Nikon) eyecup on my Sony A7II and it made a big difference.

Re: Sony FDR-AX100 eyecup

Here's the link, but unfortunately the seller sold the last one -

Sony Oversized EVF Eye Cup PXW X70 FDR AX100 HDR CX900 | eBay

I did find this Greek seller with a good feedback rating:

New Genuine Sony Eye Cup Viewfinder for PXW X70 HDR CX900E FDR AX100 | eBay

I found these doing a search for "Eye Cup PXW-X70" and "Eye Cup FDR-AX100".

A Google search showed that Full Compass Systems also had them for sale online at a reasonable price ($42 including shipping).

I'd say it's definitely worth the price.

Hope that helps!

Thx for the links, Slobodan, the link you gave is very interesting because it's very cheap :) How does it fit, is it tight or do you have to apply some tape to make it fit?

These work great on the AX100 and the X70, and they're only about $5.

The extra small round works on both.
