    Wear glasses - then this is for you!

    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.

    Doesn't enhance eyeglass wearer view

    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.

              This is a nice accessory to have on sunny days. Pop off the shade around your viewfinder and replace it with this eyecup to block the sun while looking in the viewfinder. The fit is very snug. It does not block your ability to see into the viewfinder. The only downsides are (1) the cost, and (2) it is harder to chimp your camera screen. Neither are deal breakers because when you need to block the sun, this is a great solution.

              I wear glasses and found this to be great at blocking light. I use it with a Canon 7D camera & keep it attached for various photography.

              It is somewhat large & does slightly block the LCD Monitor; images are still viewable though.

              I'm very pleased to have found this product & would recommend this to anyone

                While it did not solve the problem I was hoping it would solve, it still helps me focus better on what is in my screen. Now I just have to figure out what the solution is going to be.

                Purchased this for my 5d III it works ok but very big and bulky and does block the LCD screen a little. I think I need to use it a lot to get used to it.

                  it's almost an necessity for viewing the data in the viewfinder of the Canon 5D Mark three. Too bad there isn't a way to brighten up the information in the viewfinder.

                          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.

                                      After becomes accustomed.

                                            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.

                                              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.
