    Well it's the best eyecup available for those of us who use glasses, much better than the stock cup (I use a 40d), and better than a cheapo [@] find I tried out. It's not as good as the old canon ED-E oversize eyecup, but that only fits on film cameras. I still have to sort of squeeze my glasses in, and due to its shape I can't really get my eye close enough to easily see the whole viewfinder, which is something I could do with the old ED-E.Yes it blocks part of the LCD, but who cares, the histogram isn't block and that's the only thing that matters. It's a little pricey to for what it is in my opinion.

    Overall, this eye cup serves it's purpose of blocking light. The rubber cup itself is sturdy and it doesn't move once its locked in. It can be rotated for left or right eye configuration. I attached it to a Canon 70D with little difficulty. The only downside is it blocks the LCD monitor on the 70D so it can't be moved once the eye cup is in place. This is the reason for the lower star score.

        Comments about Hoodman Glasses Model Hoodeye Eyecup for Most Canon SLR Models:

        This reversible cup (can use it for either right or left eye) replaces the OM eyecup. It is easily mounted and firmly held in place. With it in place, I use it for my right eye and don't smear the inside of my eyeglasses, which sometimes happened with the OM cup. By forcing me to use my right eye, it makes using the button that I've designated for back button focus more easily accessible. Being reversible, it would act similarly if one wanted to use the left eye. It also helps to screen out ambient light in bright conditions. The cup easily flattens itself when putting camera in backpack or other carrier, yet pops right back when taken out and used.

          this eye piece is great, it works so much better than the eye cups that come with canon cameras and they set your camera apart and make you look professional,beyond that they allow you to see the colors and details as they appear more vivid because theres less refection from light.

                    I bought this for a Canon EOS 650 that I recently picked up second-hand. This camera has a fixed diopter and I need reading glasses to effectively use the viewfinder. The Hoodman eye cup makes using such glasses effortless. The rubber hood comfortably shields the glasses and keeps out peripheral light. Highly recommended.

                              I bought this one after purchasing one for a different camera. Loved it. Keeps the glare out when shooting in strong side-light situations. Comfortable. Works for left eyed shooters also. We will see when I get new eyeglasses if the eyecup prevents me from scratching them. I still need to see how well they travel in a camera bag. (if they get knocked off or need to be taken off) 4 stars since the jury is still out on that issue and on the scratched glasses concern.

                              Comments about Hoodman Glasses Model Hoodeye Eyecup for Most Canon SLR Models:

                              It was bought to be used with a Canon 70D. It fits well and stops excess light although it is not listed for this camera. However, if you are picky, unless you turn around the screen before attaching the Hoodman, you may have to remove the eye-cup every time you open the articulated screen. I do not "chimp" my pictures so this does not bother me in the least. All I want is no sun blinding my vision.

                                  Works well due to the fact that I wear eyeglasses.

                                      This eyecup is well made and many photographers wearing glasses may find it useful. But, I was surprised at how huge and bulky it was extending off the back of the camera. The worst thing about it is that it covers the top 1/4 of my LCD screen and for that reason, I had to return it.

                                        Comments about Hoodman Glasses Model Hoodeye Eyecup for Most Canon SLR Models:

                                        I have been using the Hoodman loop for several years, that was the first thing that saved my life while shooting in open spaces of sun and light. As I have gotten older, well you know things start breaking down, including our eye site. I have worn glasses for many years now and got tired of mounting my glasses on the top of my head when putting my eye up to the pentaprism of my camera.

                                        The Hoodman eye cup is great if you need to keep your glasses on, set your diopter and start shooting! I have found that this particular Hoodman is great if you wear thinner frame glasses. I will also suggest looking at there HEYEC22G (Canon mount), for a larger cup if you need more space for your glasses.

                                          Better than described. Seems a little bigger than it appears in the pictures, which is good. Have it on an XTI. Does hang over screen a bit, but what do you expect... A little pricey, but should definately do everything it was built for...
