Vello ESS-A7 overview

  • 1Description

The ESS-A7 Eyecup from Vello is a replacement eyepiece for Sony a7 series 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, 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 on the camera's viewfinder. 

Compatible with the Following Cameras:
Sony a7, a7 II, a7S, a7S II, a7R, and a7R II

    Vello ESS-A7 reviews

    ESS-A7 Eyecup for Sony a7 Series Cameras is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Obscures sides of A7r II viewfinder Blocks the sides of the A7r II viewfinder just a bit, but enough for me to return it. I bought the Vello ESS-A& Eyeshade because it had a rectangular opening as does the Sony A7r II, as opposed to the Hoodman Eyecup which allegedly has a circular aperture. The Hoodman Glasses Hoodeye Eyecup works perfectly on my Nikon D810. If Hoodman redesigns their Eyecup for the Sony A7r II with a rectangular opening, I will purchase it. If you wear glasses, this Vello Eyeshade will not work; that's not surprising, but I good to know. (BTW B&H does not pay for return shipping. Eyeshade was sent it to me in a stiff envelope, not a box, resulting in slightly crushed product packaging).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get the Hoodman instead. Fits properly on my A7RIII and if I didn't already own the Hoodman version I'd say this Vello is a good deal. But the reason the Hoodman is far superior is that their cutout of the eyepiece is round vs the square cutout on the Vello. The Hoodman gives me 100 percent view whereas the Vello obstructs the lower part of the viewfinders info bar.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful Connects securely and does a fairly good job for what it is. It is just rubber, no frills. I shot a backlit model at sunset up on a hill and I shoot with my right eye. When the sun was to my left the light was still leaking in and blinding me and I need to use my other hand to block the light. When the sun was on my right it worked perfectly. I haven't used it for video yet, but I intend to use it on my a7sii for quick handheld shots to allow for more stability or when the LCD is too hard to see in bright sun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I think this works better then the Hoodman version of the eyecup for sony. This seems to allow a much less obstructed view of the viewfinder. So I'm able to judge things better. Plus the hoodman, seem to not fit the camera perfectly, where as this one does.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful to block unwanted sun glare It is a good quality product and it is helpful to block the glare. However, it does position your eye a little farther from the viewfinder and thus you don't have a complete edge to edge view. Takes a little getting used to.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dose the job - not so comfortable. It dose the job very well but Its not as comfortable as I expected. I planed to use it for day to day use, but I will use it only for extreme cases.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good at blocking light but is a pain to use viewfinder. Works good for blocking light but needs to be held in a specific position to fully view the viewfinder.
