Eyecup for CL?

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one who thinks the CL needs a silicone rubber eyecup?  I find a lot of stray light comes at me from the side, depending of course on lighting conditions, where the sun is, etc. I find myself cupping my hand up against my face and around my eye to block stray light.

Is there a generic eyecup available, or something that could be adapted to fit on the CL?

If one wears glasses, as do I, then you're rather stuck !

I find it no hardship using my left hand, when needed, to shield against glare when shooting outside on a sunny day.

An eye cup would be a sensible accessory . I cannot see a thing , when I cannot shield with my left hand , and focus my long focus R telephoto at the same moment .

This eyecup is probably slightly loose. It must be possible to modify it by a rubber ring:

Well that's an interesting possibility.  I'll look into that one.  First thing to do is I have to measure the diameter of the CL's eyepiece to see if that one will fit.
