      The I-cuff has a great feel, and durable. I'm using it with the Sony PMW-320 XD camera with the flip-up view finder. The original rubber eye cup kept falling off because of poor construction. So I'm trying the I-cuff as a solution. The 9.5 inch cuff doesn't provide a tight seal around the viewfinder even though I have it cinched up super-tight. It also slides sideways and tends to block some of the viewfinder. It also doesn't block the sun very well from entering the viewfinder. I'm tempted glue the original rubber eye cup back on because the I-cuff isn't providing the solution I was hoping for. I also tried the larger I-cuff with results being worse.

          Fits great, comfortable, reduces fogging. Before I bought this, I met a guy who has owned an i-cuff for over 15yrs and it still looks & performs like it did when it was new. I was always interested in one, but that sold me.

            Comments about Raider i-cuff PRO Viewfinder Hood:

            It's not always optimal to use the viewfinder and/or monitor when shooting with a DSLR. To the rescue comes the i-cuff. Now I can really see what I'm shooting. All my associates are now getting them. Nothing like it. Comfortable, cuts the sunlight entering the viewfinder and has eliminated fogging.
            Thanks B&H and i-cuff for offering a fantastic product! AT this price, I'm ordering them for all our cameras.

              I bought this with my Vortex Razor scope. Seemsed like a good accessory. It fits the scope but its too bulky. In addition, it affixes to the eyepiece an prevents zooming while it's in place.

              Probably fine for video cameras but not scopes.

                  This product is great! I was stuck in Hurricane Sandy's weather for a week and half shooting network news coverage. Minimized fogging, protected my eyes and viewfinder and was comfortable against my face for hours of shooting. And it didn't even blow off in 75+ MPH winds.

                    The I-cuff has a great feel, and durable. I'm using it with the Sony PMW-320 XD camera with the flip-up view finder. The original rubber eye cup kept falling off because of poor construction. So I'm trying the I-cuff as a solution. The 9.5 inch cuff doesn't provide a tight seal around the viewfinder even though I have it cinched up super-tight. It also slides sideways and tends to block some of the viewfinder. It also doesn't block the sun very well from entering the viewfinder. I'm tempted glue the original rubber eye cup back on because the I-cuff isn't providing the solution I was hoping for. I also tried the larger I-cuff with results being worse.

                    The i-Cuff replaces the typical rubber viewfinder eyecup that comes with most cameras. The i-Cuff is soft and doesn't get cold in the winter. Even when it does get wet, it will dry quickly and remains intact. It blocks light much better than standard rubber eyecup.

                    The only negative is that the i-Cuff perhaps doesn't last as long as it should.

                      The padding is a lot easier on your eyes than the normal stock rubber viewfinder hood. In the winter it stays warm. Even if it gets wet and/or snowy, it quickly dries off and doesn't get wrecked. Every couple of months some of the threads on the logo come loose, so I need to cut them with the scissors. Took a while to get used to, but now I couldn't shoot news without it!

                      What a great product. Don't know how I lasted all these years with just an armband. Great job i-cuff.
