I read this in the DPreview forum that CANON EYE-CUP FOR A-1, AE-1P fits very nicely on FZ-3 viewfinder. Wonder if its the same for FZ5.
Anyone knows where can get the Canon Eye cup.
Thanks.

If you refering the the above type, you can get it from ebay.
If need to be trim a bit to fit onto FZ10/20.
For FZ5, should be able to.

Or the Nikon type below from Precision Photo
Not sure will fit FZ5 ok.

Just wondering, is there really a need for the eyecap for our FZ5 camera? The viewfinder is the electrical type (EVF), hence is pretty bright compared to the lens reflection design.

So far I've no problems using the EVF, even in bright outdoors.

I am wearing spect and I felt better with the eyecup on my FZ20.
It help especially shooting against bright day light, IMO.

Bought the Canon AE1 Eyecup today and it fits nicely on the FZ5 Viewfinder.
No modification needed. Just plug it in.

Hi all,
It seems that the Eyecup I bought might be the one and only piece (i don't know).
Pls call up the shop to check if they have stock.
