This is a story about my third drawer down, the one I keep my bits from other cameras, yesterday I had a eureka moment when for the first time I remembered where something was…the third drawer down.
In the drawer was an eyecup from a previous camera I suspect a Sony and this was a bigger version than the one that comes with the camera.
I unwrapped it from it’s yellow (Sony) plastic bag and firstly took off the GH4 eye cup to discover it fitted round the back of the original eyecup.
As if were meant I fed the rubber round the back of the GH4s and hey presto it fits like a glove. Are there any downsides…you can’t pull the LCD out without holding the bottom of the eyecup out the road but thats just a knack.
The eyecup will be invaluable in broad sunlight but the downside is repeating it with the same eyecup, its either from a Sony NX70 or a Sony FS100, they come with a normal eyecup but also give you this extendable larger eyecup.
Look on EBAY for spare large rubber eyecups they are about £15, I will try to find out where we can get this eyecup and how much it will be.
