The ESC-EF Eyeshade for Select Canon Cameras from Vello is a replacement eyepiece for select Canon cameras that provides a large, oval eyecup for more comfortable viewing through the viewfinder. The large shape of the eyecup improves the image quality in the viewfinder by sealing out all extraneous light. It can rotate 360º to accommodate both the left and right eye and horizontal and vertical shooting positions. The eyecup extends from the viewfinder somewhat and works well for photographers who wear eyeglasses because it rests evenly on the eyeglass surface, blocking stray light and providing a clearer image. The soft yet durable rubber design is comfortable for those who do not wear eyeglasses and will not scratch or damage the glasses of those who do. It mounts easily and securely to the camera's viewfinder. 

Compatible with the Following Cameras:
Canon 10D, 20D, 20Da, 30D, 40D, 50D, 5D, 5D Mark II, 60D, 60Da, A2, A2E, D30, D60, Elan II, Elan IIE, Rebel 2000, Rebel G, Rebel G II, Rebel K2, Rebel X, Digital Rebel (original version), Digital Rebel XS, XSi, XT, XTi, TI, T1i, T2, T2i, T3, T3i, T4i

    I ordered this Vello eyeshade mainly because the price was much lower and for a simple thing like this it didn't seem to make sense to paid double just for the name brand. I've had good experience with previous Vello purchases, and I was not disappointed. I'm left eyed, so I need a shade that could be rotated (it comes shipped for right-eyed people). It was a little difficult to rotate the cup at first, but now I am able to move it as needed (for example when shooting in a vertical format). If it had rotated more easily from the start, I would have given it 5 stars. Overall, thumbs up.

    I purchased this eyepiece hoping to achieve a couple of things:

    1) leave fewer cheek and nose prints on my camera screen while shooting and
    2) get a more consistent view through the viewfinder.

    For the most part, I guess I got what I wanted, but the eyepiece doesn't seem to lock into place on my T1i and so tends to slide out occasionally. Additionally, the increased distance between the eye and viewfinder makes seeing the edges of the frame a bit more difficult, and so it's a little easier for intrusions to sneak into your composition--perhaps not really a flaw of the product but something to bear in mind. The size of the cup also blocks the sensor on the T1i so the screen doesn't turn off when one looks through the viewfinder--but other than eating a little more battery it shouldn't make much difference operationally, as the eye cup blocks the screen light from entering the viewfinder anyway. The eye cup can be rotated, but actually turning it is more of a struggle than it probably should be. The eye cup is fairly comfortable at least, and does help me keep my screen free of nose prints and breath fog.

    If on a budget, it'll probably do, but there might be better options worth looking at first.

    Comments about Vello ESC-EF Eyeshade for Select Canon Cameras:

    I wasn't sure it would fit on my Canon 5Ti so I emailed Vello to see if it would block the flip our screen on the back of the camera. They said it wouldn't, but it did. You would have to remove the eyeshade to open or close the screen, and it blocks about half an inch of the screen. I returned it.

      Good Eyeshade.

      By Michael

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Comments about Vello ESC-EF Eyeshade for Select Canon Cameras:

      This is a nice eyeshade. It is a little big if you are using a camera that has an optional tilt screen. I have a Canon 70d and have to raise the eyeshade up in order for me to move the screen. Other than that it helps keep the sun out of my eye when shooting in the bright sun and I like it.

      I don't know why I waited so long to get this eyeshade. It really helps me to see exactly what I'm photographing and assuring my focus point is exactly where I want it.

          I love this eye piece for my canon rebel t3, blocks out all light so it's easier to see your subject in the viewfinder and your readings in the viewfinder. Very nice quality soft rubber, doesn' t hurt your eye.

          The eye piece fit my Canon perfectly. Works as advertised. Would purcahse again. My only complaint is I had to put a touch of super glue on it I have an adapter - not glued directly to camera) to keep it from accidentally sliding off.

                      Had one of these on my XTI and upgraded to a 70D. I wear glasses and its great for better view through the viewfinder. It does cover a tad of the articulated screen, but it's not a problem. Just lift the bottom of the eyecup a bit and the screen comes right out. This model was listed for a 60D as it wasn't listed for the 70D yet.

                            Really nothing positive about this product. It doesn't make viewing more comfortable as it claims. Trying to get eye close enough to fit comfortably in the eye piece requires smashing your nose against the back of the camera. Also, the screen can't be opened or closed with the eyepiece in place. I gave one star only because I couldn't give a zero.

                            I don't like smudges on the LCD display and was looking for something to keep my face off the camera.

                            Also zoom lenses don't stay steady enough at the zoom end.

                            The eyepiece allows me to use my head to keep a zoom lens steady; the view in the viewfinder is much better (I now shoot without my glasses); and no smudges.

                                    This seemed like a good idea at the time, but on my T3i you can't flip open the LCD without removing the eyepiece. That makes it impractical to use and therefore useless.

                                          I bought this because at this time of year (Fall/Winter) the sun is always low in the sky and seems to interfere with my viewing through viewfinder. This eyeshade blocks that unwanted sunlight from entering. I would recommend this product to anyone who also finds this annoying!

                                            Muito bem fabricada, bastante pratica e funcional, notando-se a sua resistencia a uma utilizacao intensa, especialmente segura na rotacao da vista esquerda para a direita.

                                              I bought this for my Canon t4i, it is my carry camera. I also have a 7D and Mark 5, I have one on my 7D and loved it so I purchased it for the 4 and it works just as well as on the other camera.
                                              It helps with the light for which it is made, and for the price you can't go wron. I own several other Vello products and I'am happy with all of them for the price.
