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.
I recently called FF NA to order a new (lost) eyepiece for my x-pro 2...and they sent this attached photo. Really? I do not remember what the piece that was there looked like. Is this it? If not what is? Thank you for you help!
The impossibility of interchanging the X-T10 eyepiece for a deeper one was the main nagging point in my short experience with the camera (for now I've had it for less than a week). But it looks like I may have found a DIY solution that actually works. I don't yet know how well it will withstand the test of time and being put in and out of a bag without caring too much, but for now it sure looks promising. A Nikon DK-19 eyecup happens to be the right fit to mount perfectly on top of the X-T10 non-removable eyepiece. Obviously the problem is that it will not stay put in place on its own. Luckily this is easily solvable. The DK-19 has a shallow "lip" inside, and this is the part that it will actually be in contact with the X-T10 eyepiece. Smearing a tiny bit of Sugru inside this lip, then pressing in place the DK-19 and letting it rest for a few hours (preferably 24) it will give the Sugru time to cure. At that point the DK-19 eyecup will be bonded with the X-T10 original one. Two notes: the DK-19 is often kinda of expensive. I happened to have one still around from my Nikon days. But I've used even cheap Chinese knock-offs without a problem the company that makes Sugru claims that should you want to remove it at a later date you will be able to do just scratching it with your nails and then wiping the surface clean with baby wipes. I believe them, because Sugru should basically be silicone caulk mixed with something like corn starch to make it in a paste and allow it to cure faster. But this is the first time I've ever used Sugru, so do this at your own risk. Should the eyepiece become permanently bonded to your camera lowering its resale value you're on your own... For me I don't care, because I don't see myself getting rid of the X-T10 for any foreseeable time (I love this thing...) and because I've had an extended eyepiece on all my cameras since when I was still a kid in the '80s.
