The perfect GH4 Eyecup

Categories: GH5 camera 8 Comments


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.

    Hi there

    Great site by the way.

    Could you post your complete preferred picture related settings on the GH4. Picture profile, highlights, black level etc. That would really be appreciated.

    Why not approach the guy who has made the eye cups for the Canon C100 to make one for the GH4?

    Any details where one can buy this eyecup without it costing £60?!

    Can’t believe that cambo doesn’t have an online shop at the time of internet… would really want to buy an eyecup from them.

    R. Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days on as we hope to be selling the eyecup in our new on-line shop.

    I pulled an eyecup off an old Sony DSR-250 DVCAM’s EVF and it fits nicely over the GH4’s rubber eyecup. It does stop the flipout screen from moving but it’s a simple matter to remove the Sony cup, open the screen and replace the Sony cup. Blocks extraneous light nicely.

    This is works perfectly. I just tried it – it fits perfect over the current GH4 eyecup.
