Eyeglasses

Post by eggart » Mon Jul 24, 2006 4:00 am

Does anyone have any recommendations for making an eyecup that would be big enough to fit over a pair of medium-sized glasses? The diopter on my camera doesn't adjust far enough to use it without them, and it's somewhat distracting with them on.

Don't know - but I sympathise with you - I (should) wear glasses too - and there's nothing worse than not being entirely sure if you've got the focus right. If worse comes to worse you may have to settle for a black piece of cloth - like they did in the olden days!

How do they justify that Zigview device compared to a simple vertical viewfinder attachment...?

I usually just press my face (with glasses) to the eyepiece. Even if it's small, this usually yields enough viewing angle.

I know it looks ugly, but I've used ordinary black gaffer tape, sometimes taping up a sliced up soft plastic 35mm film tub to the eyepiece. I've used polymorph for one camera. Also look to recycle eyecups from obsolete, broken or shelf queen cameras.

Hopefully you can find one that doesn't require too much fiddling with to mount it on your camera.

zigview pricing

Post by kentek » Mon Jul 24, 2006 5:29 pm

Here's URL to one of Ziview's online dealers.



I think it is a pretty neat item.
Pricing doesn't seem too bad to me. $200US approx. Nice addons too.

Question is how would one attach to a Canon or Beaulieu S8. Would there be enough resolultion to adjust focus, etc.
