Viewfinder eyepiece for A77II
« on: July 27, 2016, 05:53:17 PM »
Hi guys,

Does anyone know where to buy decent and decently priced big eyepiece for A77II?
I need one for left eye or one that can be flipped for left-right eye. Ideally one that
will not cover viewfinder sensor. Something in UK/EU would be best.
I really badly need one, because shooting in sunny weather is a real pain.
I have on my mind something like pictured below.

Kind regards.

The best I can suggest is that you send your mock up to one of the e-bay suppliers and see if they come up with anything like it.  I have not seen one like this on anything I have encountered in the field (any brand)....john

There is a company called Hoodman that make eyepieces (eyecup) like these. Not sure they make one specifically for the A77ii but worth a look. They are based in the USA but i'm sure there are stockists in the UK.
Looking at the compatibility chart it looks like it will fit your camera.

This one appears to be the closest to what you are after

@chappo1
What you mean by mock-up, eyecup from my camera?

@Chris82
Thanks for links, very helpful. I found some of those Hoodeyes on eBay from european sellers but for nikon can canon...
I don't know what is wrong with all that, everything for sony is either not available or much more expensive, it really get on my nerves.

I found chiness counterpart but i'm afraid about quality and delivery time, it may arrive here after summer has ended ; ).
Anyway thanks a lot for your replies, maybe i will find someone that will be willing to help ship one from states to uk.
