Problem Solver: Eyeshade for Sony A7 Series Cameras

See my Sony mirrorless wish list at B&H Photo.

For over a year I’ve put up with stray light from the side with my Sony A7R II. I’m annoyed at myself for not finding this solution sooner since I should have thought of it.

I saw this eyeshade very recently, and got one—problem solved: no more sunlight or bright light hitting my eye from the side, which happens all the time in the outdoors, particularly at peak shooting times.

At about $17.95 it’s worth every penny. Slides on or off if desired to swap with original.

  • Large Oval Shape for Eye Comfort
  • Seals Out Stray Light
  • Rotates 360º for Left or Right Eye
  • Rotates for Horizontal or Vertical View
  • Soft and Durable Rubber
  • Prevents Scratching of Eyeglasses
  • Fits Sony a7 Series Cameras
Vello ESS-A7 Eyeshade for Sony A7 Series Cameras

Interesting… The Vello eyecup you posted has more than a passing resemblance to the Hoodman eyecup. The Hoodman comes in a larger size for people who wear glasses. I got one a couple of months ago, and use it on bright days outdoors. $20.

DIGLLOYD: I hadn’t seen the Hoodman eyecup and I don't know if one is better than the other.

I found this eyeshade some months ago and managed to mount my personal prescription of my right eye into it.

I have some astigmatism that cannot be corrected with the camera’s diopter. So I shaped a lens and fitted it into the eyeshade (I’m an optician).

Now I can shoot without glasses and have a very crisp and sharp image of the viewfinder (although only in landscape orientation). If I want to shoot with glasses on, I simply take the eyeshade off.
