Cheap but cheerful – Universal Viewfinder Eyecup for DSLR/SLR (with Adapters) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
* Cheap.
* Worth trying for the price.
* On the Sony A100 it fits without any of the adapters and wedges on tightly, no wobble or accidentally falling off.
* Build quality is OK and didnt have any problems with feeling like it wouldnt last.
Cons:
* Didnt work well on my Alpha A100 as it covered the auto start sensors and is quite cramped looking through the view finder compared to the standard viewfinder.
* Rubber eye piece is quite hard and unfinished so not comfortable to use.
Other:
Worth a try as its cheap and might be good for some cameras but not for me or the A100.
Bottomline:
If you have an A100 I'd give this a miss, but worth considering if your eyepiece has seen better days or is uncomfortable.
