    I've found that my view of a scene through the viewfinder is enhanced immeasurably if I place a hand on either side of my face to stop the light from leaking in and diminishing the quality of the view. Trouble is, I need my hands for other purposes!

    Any suggestions on a way around this? I note Canon does an extended eyecup (ep-ex15) but that appears primarily to assist those with glasses ; it's not intended to cut down on unwanted light.

    I have thought about draping a black scarf over my head and camera (so creating the sort of blanket those school photographers used to use) but my wife's threatened to leave me if I do.

    If the extended eyecup is rubber it should help with or without glasses as it makes a better seal around your eye.

    Thanks, Ian - unfortunately it's not of rubber.

    Saw a photog with an eyecap that was very similar to the eyecaps you find on pro TV cams (the portable kind - andytvcams Wink it was pretty old camera, by design. Never got a chance to talk to him. So I wonder - was it self/custom made or are there things like that for sale?

    Hi Ian, did you ever find a solution to this problem? I'm looking for an eyecup as well.

    I use These and just adapt them to fit over my 5D viewfinder.

    Flindt, the Canon eye extender is just that, it puts a 15mm spacer mainly for people who wear glasses. Hoever, you have to put the original eyepiece on as well, and thats rubber.
