Eyecup for the new Fuji X-E3
The last holiday I took my new X-E3 with me. For sure, it´s a fantastic camera, but it needs not much time and I was disappointed because of the missing eyecup. I was photographing with a lot of sun and light around me. Best weather for great moments which I want to catch. Ok perhaps I am a fool because it´s not the first time and I am no beginner in photographing. But now I have verified that it´s not possible to shoot without an eyecup. I love to use manual lenses and focos peaking. Regardless of the peak colour you cannot see it anymore.
Always using one hand to cover the light… no way! More particularly if you are shooting manually because you need your hand to focus the lens. So one hand covers the light, the other one turn the focus… but my tongue is not long enough for the trigger!
Ok, not moaning – doing! That´s the way! I need an eyecup for the next trip/photo session! Because we have developed a lot of stuff in that way it was no problematic issue to design also an eyecup for the Fuji X-E3.
What should I say? Two worlds of photographing with and without this little feature.
Normally I am shooting with manual autofocusing and I use the focus peaking. In bright light without the little helper no possibility. But with this hood it´s really perfect. And if you are using autofucus you may not have the problem to shoot a sharp photo but you will have the advantage of the brilliant display because of the high contrast when you darken the surrounding of your eye.
This project was very successfull. But now we are going to put some new project into practice and so we have finished the production of these part!
