Never use a rubber eyepiece without these Bluestar eye cushions...super comfortable and absorb sweat

Prevents glasses smudges with rubber eye cups

I purchased a few of these to use on my TV camera viewfinder and the Arri Alexa viewfinder. I wear glasses and need something to keep the rubber eye cups from smearing the lenses. These eye cushions work very well. They take a little finessing to get on the rubber eye cup. The will fall off with some heavy movement such as that while using the camera for a football game or basketball game. I have bumped it off while walking and carrying the camera beside my leg during a football game. But they do help keep my glasses from getting too smudged. The price is also good.

These eye cushions make viewing more comfortable on hot days. And in the winter you don’t feel the shock of putting your face on a cold rubber eyecup

Eye Cushion for Viewfinder

I have glasses and I had a lot of problems getting smears on my glasses from the rubber eye cup of my camera. I use both a Broadcast TV camera and a cinema camera. This is a soft solution to protect your eye and glasses from the smearing of the camera viewfinder. The company recommended the Ultrasuede version for people that wear glasses. It is working great for me. It is not easy to get this on the rubber eye piece, but it's not as bad a others have mentioned. The existing rubber eyepiece goes in between the layers of the Bluestar Eyecushion. The first step is to get the larger portion of the rubber eyepiece through the smaller round hole in the back of the Eyecushion. Then feed the rest of the rubber eyepiece into the hole between the back portion and front portion of the Bluestar eyecushion. Just work your way around until all the rubber eyepiece is in. Then adjust it for position and fit. If you bump it or pull on it, it will come off again. It probably takes a minute to re-install. It has kept my glasses cleaner while working. The Oval Large was recommended for a full size broadcast camera viewfinder with the oval rubber eyepiece. It may look a little small, but it fits just fine. You want it to fit tight without a lot of play, so it stays on. I'm glad I purchased it, I have 4 of these now. One for each camera and a couple of extras when they get too dirty. I'm going to try washing it as see if that works.

So far so good

Good so far. It fits over my xdcam eye cup. Will it stay clean? Will it be easy to clean?

Nobody likes Shwetty Eyeballs...

So far, I am liking the cushion and fog-discouraging aspects of these cup-socks, though I am finding they do not easily fit ALL eye-cups. I may have to take a scissors to the one on my FS5 so that I have a clearer view. BUT, on hot days when the sweat is running off you like down hill skiiers trying to out-run an avalanche, these green eyecups are a godsend.

Comfy!

I know you should change every use, but able to get a solid few weeks of shooting before they go black.

The ultra suede is very soft against the eye and skin.

We list the Oval Large Microfiber Eyecushion (Grey) as working with the JVC GY-HD100U which has the same eye cup. So yes, this should fit just fine.

question

I just bought this, and noticed the foamy side has no adhesive. How does this attach to the Zacuto Pro Rubber Eyecup?
Asked by: Audrey L.
Correct no adhesive needed. You fit it over the rubber eye cup. It's a little tricky the first few times.Soon you will be able to do it instantly even when the director, the DP and the OP are all having conniptions because the sun is going down.

question

Does this fit the DVX200? If not is there one that works?
Asked by: Joshua
Unfortunately, not well. The cup alignment is just off enough that it pulls off easily. I ordered the extra large to see if it would work, but over time the foam started to rip on the edges. Emailed the company and never heard a reply, so unless you are a surgeon and want to operate on the 200 eyecup, pass on this one.

I bought it for a SONY ex3 and it needed trimming. Eventually I had to pay $$ for the original as this really didn't work as a replacement.
