    Sony A6000 eyecup

    I was going to post here with the question: Is there a rubber eyecup made for the A6000?

    I looked quite a long time and could not find anything...anywhere. There are some for the Nex models but not the A6000. I find it so frustrating trying to see the LCD screen in daylight and even the view finder.

    I bought an eyecup for my Canon T5i and has helped greatly especially with my glasses on. For the heck of it I took the eyecup which is made of rubber and was able to stretch on to my A6000. It was not difficult to do and luckily it was a tight fit. So I think my problem is solved for less than $3.

    Also,I suspect,, if you can find one from sony, the FDA-EV1MK eyecup will also fit on your a6000

    Thanks OldNoob. I have never used the electronic viewfinder and it sounds great. I was blown away by the price ( around $448). I do very little video so maybe it would be a big help for those who do. I think there are other devices too (view extenders?) that may help though again I have never tried one. For now at least, the $3 "solution" has helped me quite a bit.

    Over the weekend, I found that a decent eyepiece/eyecup would go down a treat. Bright sunny day,, viewfinder brightness that was set late in the afternoon on a very overcast,, day all added up to a viewfinder that was very hard to view through and an LED screen that was even harder to view shots on. I suppose I could have tweaked it on the spot but I didn't, as I was quite interested in seeing just how long the battery would last with just photo's alone... I found myself constantly cupping my left hand over the viewfinder and pressing my eye right into it, to get any good sort of view of the coming shot...
