        Good quality eye cover. A little funky to put on the viewfinder but once it's on it works well.

        neoprene delaminated quickly

            Comments about Birns & Sawyer Oval Chamois Eyepiece Cover:

            the glue that holds the sides of the neoprene pouch together lets go rather easily and it becomes useless.- falls off the eyecup... too bad.. nice feel and size. I tried repairing it with a variety of glues, but haven't found one that works. So I am now trying: a new Bluestar large eye cup , but it is too small for my Alphatron EVF, even with the rubber cup trimmed down to fit this Birns and Sawyer. I just put a new Alphatron Cup on and while it resembles the B&S, I hope its glue is better and that it will not delaminate.

              Would work best in a studio or carful use situation. Needs to be taped on if used in documentary style shooting.

                    Comments about Birns & Sawyer Oval Chamois Eyepiece Cover:

                    I'm glad I got to review a product as simple and relatively "low key" as the B & S Oval eyepiece. It's a chance to give praise to a product most shooters simply take for granted. The Birns and Sawyer chamois eyepiece works like a charm, doing what it's simply designed to do; make the task of keeping one's eye "glued" to the camera's eyepiece a little more comfortable and a bit less tedious. Anyone who spends a lot of time looking into a camera's eyepiece knows exactly what I'm speaking of. The B&S chamois oval eyepiece is one of camera operators' little unsung heros.

                    good start with these eyepieces as they feel great on the eye. The also appear chunky and well made. But I am in week 3 and have already had to go through 4 of these as they keep splitting along the sides. One after the other they go within a couple of days. not good
