Hoodman's Glasses Model Hoodeye Eyecup for Canon 5D Mark III 7D, 1D, and 1DS Mark III Models is specially designed for the eyeglass wearer. From its over-sized design, which seals out ambient light, to its rotating nature that accommodates right or left eyed shooters, this eyecup ensures that the bespectacled Canon 5D Mark III, 7D, 1D, and IDS Mark III shooter can get their shot with ease. The self locking mount slides over the eyepiece mounting rails, keeping the cup in place. Additionally, the hypoallergenic silicon keeps irritation at bay for hours of comfortable shooting.

    I will use it all the time outdoors in bright sun light. I shoot in manual mode and need to see the meter in the view finder and it works great. In the more challening situations, I remove my glasses and the eyecup fits against my face perfectly, bloking out all light.

    It is large and does cover part of the LCD on the rear of the camera, however if you tilt the camera slightly, all is good. I took one star off because the actual opening is circular and yields some vignetting in the corners

    Prior to purchase I called and explained to a B & H salesman that wearing glasses interfered with my ability to see the entire view area within the viewfinder of my Cannon 5D Mark III. Based on his feedback that the Hoodeye would enhance my view, I purchased the item. Unfortunately, it hasn't helped me except it does eliminate side light but, that wasn't my concern nor why I called and why I purchased the Mod HEYEC22G per B&H salesman. Consequently, I still do not have a full view through the viewfinder so in my case it was a waste of time calling/purchasing this item.

      Hoodman Canon Eyecup too large

            Although the Hoodman Eyecup is of good quality rubber it is too large and cumbersome even with glasses. For me, a petite woman, I found it unusable.

                This eyecup works fine in reducing ambient light, but my glasses still get smudged with use. Aside from the smudging, another 'con' with the eyecup is its rather large size, which interferes with LCD viewing if the camera is placed on a tripod. Despite these issues, I would recommend the eyecup, as it is easier to use when wearing glasses.

                        At first you think it's strange.
                        After becomes accustomed.
                        It takes a bit of your lcd vision.

                                It covers part of the LCD which is to be expected I suppose, but when you switch between photo and video as much as I do it becomes frustrating. It is comfortable on the eye and blocks out all light, and easily rotates between landscape/portrait, not a bad investment if the sun bothers you while you're shooting pictures.

                                  This is a must have product if you wear glasses like I do. There isn't much to say about this rubber piece other than its easy to use. It's a little bulky and big but it does what it needs to do.

                                    i shoot sports. i wear glasses. this little gizmo is pretty handy. i didn't know how much i needed one until i got one. it rotates, so you can use it for horizontal/vertical. it's a tad big, so it might not fit in your camera bag; however, it can fold over on itself, so for short storage, it's okay...but i wouldn't want to leave it that way for a long time. small investment. big return.

                                      I will use it all the time outdoors in bright sun light. I shoot in manual mode and need to see the meter in the view finder and it works great. In the more challening situations, I remove my glasses and the eyecup fits against my face perfectly, bloking out all light.

                                      It is large and does cover part of the LCD on the rear of the camera, however if you tilt the camera slightly, all is good. I took one star off because the actual opening is circular and yields some vignetting in the corners

                                      Stays attached unlike some others. Works well with my bi-bifocals. An improvement over my nekkid viewfinder.

                                          Works on my 7D. Slightly blocks top of LCD but a slight tilt and you can see it.

                                            Placed this on my 7D and immediately found it much easier to see through the viewfinder. Eyecup is comfortable, easy to attach, and a great value for the money.

                                              The Hoodeye Eyecup blocks distracting, extraneous light and allows you to focus completely on what you're shooting.This model, designed for those of us who wear glassses, works well and helps you achieve the best shots you can get.

                                                  I didn't buy eyecup for use with glasses but to block the sun coming from my right. Nature photography requires getting good light on your subject. Many times the sun would be directly to my right making it hard to see through the viewfinder. The Eyecup solved my problem. I am sure that it would work great with glasses also. It can be rotated for use with left eye.

                                                          Works best when camera on tripod. Walking, moving and shoting not as easy to use.
