  1. Hi Folks, Hate to join the forum with a moan! Lost the rubber eyecup from my X-Pro 2 the other day. I can't find any specific replacements on-line of on the Fuji product page. Does anyone know whether they are the same as the X-Pro 1 or a 3rd party replacement? Same happened on my XT1 and a bit disappointed that Fuji hasn't figured out how to attach them more firmly - or maybe that's the point, more sales! Any advice gratefully appriciated.
  2. Hi, I have noticed that the eyecup on my X-T2 has been loose out-of-the-box. It is obviously looser than the one on my X-T10. Has anyone noticed similar issues? Is there a way to make it tigher and not wobbling? Thanks!
  3. I like the X-Pro2 but miss an eye-cup. Being left-eyed I don't come close enough to the viewfinder to avoid stray light. Since there are no eye-cups available (at least that I am aware of), I decided to make one. I bought Nikons DK-19, which has the right diameter. I then took out the small rubber ring around the viewfinder and stitched it to the DK-19 with an ordinary sewing needle and thread. Using black thread it became almost invisible. I then pressed the ring back into the grove around the viewfinder. To me it has been an improvement. An alternative would have been to glue it to the ring with rubber cement. But then it would be difficult to remove without traces. But I suppose that a new viewfinder ring wouldn't cost much.
  4. I have heard/ read positive things about the long eyecup from for the X-T1. What does the community of shooters who wear glasses have to say about the long eyecup?
  5. When I first started using digital cameras, I was dismayed by the lack of a small but worthwhile accessory that I'd always used with film SLRs — a real eyecup. Quite a few manufacturers call their slip-on eyeguards "eyecups," but they aren't. They're don't keep (distracting and annoying) stray light out of the viewfinder. When I used Canon DSLRs, I went through the considerable pain of making my own eyecups — I'd found a small supply of ancient "A" series eyecups that fit nicely onto Canon's slip-on eyeguards. It was worth the trouble. (Later, the people at Hoodman finally got a clue and started making real eyecups for Canon cameras.) When I went to a Nikon system, I was grateful that Nikon continues to make real eyecups for its higher-end DSLRs. I was bummed to find that Fuji doesn't. But never say die. Again I've made my own using the stock X-T1 eyepieces, Nikon rubber eyecups, and the great adhesive product called Sugru — and as with the Canon cameras I'm glad I went to the trouble. (I wish I could buy not just the extended eyecup for the X-T1, but also the smaller one that comes with the camera — it's easier to work with.) But is this DIY business necessary? Does any third party make a real (round) rubber eyecup for the X-T1, attached to a proper-fitting slip-on eyepiece? I asked Hoodman about this, but they claimed in their reply that it costs about $100,000 to tool up for a new product — and they don't think the Fujifilm cameras are a big enough deal to make such a product worth their while. Maybe it isn't worth their while, but I would still think there's a market for a small but sometimes pretty important accessory like that.
