Vello ESS Reviews

Nice eyecup that stays on

By Austin

This eyecup fists super snugly and I don't see it being easily knocked off at all, I used another eyecup from a different brand but I lost it as it was nowhere near snug it was a bit loose and would constantly try to fall off until one day where it fell off on a trail and ended up being lost for good, but with this one I have no worries about that, fits extremely well and you can rotate it so you can use it with different eyes. I think this eyecup even holds better than the OEM eyecup too. Would I recommend these: Absolutely!

Great Eyecup

Really helps with the EV to reduce glare and outside light.

Why aren't OEMs using these?!

Such a vast improvement over stock that it makes me wonder why manufacturers aren't using these. This is an amazing piece of kit for any camera system; it cuts out any distracting light and allows you to focus on your DVF. This is my personal Product of The Year! I will have this on all of my future cameras. And it spins so you can use it with either eye - left or right.

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.

Helps with seeing evf more clearly. JH

It's Okay.

Meh, this is only okay. This eye cup does not fit very comfortably around your eye. Making taking photos not the smoothest. It will probably sit at the bottom of my photo bag, to be honest. I recommend the G-cup over this Vello, for Sony at least.

Eyeshade Cuts Outside Light Well

By Jack

Works as promised, easy to attache, only caveat is that the rubber or silicone shade is a bit TOO stiff for my taste. It does what is promised, but not as soft as I woud like.

Good fit and use

Fit well in my Sony A7II and work as it should with the proximity sensor.

question

Will this fit on the Sony ax53?
Asked by: Preston W.
Unfortunately, the Vello ESS-A7 Eyeshade for Sony a7 Series Cameras only lists the Sony a7, a7 II, a7S, a7S II, a7R, and a7R II Mirrorless Digital Cameras as the cameras compatible with this eyeshade. I cannot confirm if it will also fit the Sony FDR-AX53 4K Ultra HD Handycam Camcorder.

question

Would this be able to work on an a6300? Could I adapt it?
Asked by: Micah
It would probably work if the eye viewer attachment is the same as the A7. It is a easy installation and can be rotated for right or left eye
