Shouldn't be necessary but it is

This item is so essential that I can not understand why Canon does not build it into their camera bodies.

Eyepiece does not stay on camera

I have had to replace 3 of these eyepieces. The plastic construction does not hold well and the eyepiece tends to fall off easily when putting camera into bag or taking it out. I have contacted Canon about this and they gave me a polite 'Thank You' but no indication of reengineering the device. Otherwise it does a great job of keeping your nose off of the LCD panel. I would recommend this to a friend, but with the above caution.

Essential option


from Colorado  -  Photo Enthusiast

I discovered this with my XT way back when, and for each subsequent upgrade, 40D, XSi, and now 70D I automatically order the extender because it just makes using the viewfinder easier. There are two models so check the manual but sometimes you can transfer as from 40D to 70D. I'd recommend it.


Great device


from Knob Noster, MO  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have used Canon Eyepiece Extenders on all my Canon Cameras. Ones that I own now and ones I no longer have. It keeps my nose far enough away from the monitor screen so I'm not constantly smudging it. Some reviews state that it fits the camera loosely and can fall off. I have never had this problem.


Not Practicle


from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

Bought this as I was sick of nose smudges on my LCD. It does not lock onto the camera securely enough to inspire confidence, so I'm sure it would eventually be lost...if u end up using it. More importantly, do not buy this if you use manual focus. It creats a slight fisheye effect in the VF, which means the projected image looks smaller than without this extender. Even with a manual focus screen manual focus is near impossible.

Terriffic device


from Tampa, FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It's a relief to not have my face smearing the LCD screen while using the eyepiece. This solves most of that problem and makes using the eyepiece much more enjoyable.


didnt need the view reduction


from San Antonio, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I thought I was buy a extender and thats it....I didnt need a extender that reduces the view in veiw finder!!! I didnt like that...!!!


The Jury is still out


from New Haven, In  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've not used it enough. I bought it to keep from smearing the LCD display with my nose. While it does help, it doesn't stop it. The viewfinder image is smaller because it's farther away. Quality seems ok but I'm not sure if it locks on tightly enough. I've not used it much yet so i can't reccommend it.

A great item for quick shots!


from Fredericksburg, PA.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I've use this on my A2,A2e,D60&30d & love it.


Not for everybody


from Greece  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

If you have a long nose and you are wearing glass, it's OK. My nose isn't that small and if I have it on, it's easier to shoot BUT.... it gives me a huge distortion and took it off!


Small things make the biggest difference


from Memphis, Tennessee  -  Professional

I buy an extender for every camera I have ever had, and have gotten them for friends, they are wonderful in helping extend the eyepiece!
