A very useful addition to the XSi

This eyepiece extender is a great idea that should have been either a part of the camera design, or a standard accessory. When using the EOS Rebel XSi, you really need to use the SLR eyepiece viewfinder to compose and just plain aim the camera. Despite having a large LCD screen, the camera isn't really set up, as a lower cost digital camera would be, to us the LCD for composition.

This eyepiece extender is a great idea that should have been either a part of the camera design, or a standard accessory. When using the EOS Rebel XSi, you really need to use the SLR eyepiece viewfinder to compose and just plain aim the camera. Despite having a large LCD screen, the camera isn't really set up, as a lower cost digital camera would be, to us the LCD for composition. When you use the optical viewfinder, you end up pressing your nose against the LCD screen. Noses are notoriously greasy, and this grease smudges all over the LCD screen. Using this extender, you gain an extra 15mm, which cuts down on this smudging in a major way. Just remove the padded eyepiece shade by pulling up on it, replace it with the extender, and then assemble the eyepiece shade on the extender. That's all there is to it. I've read several reviews of this accessory that said it was a waste of money, or that it cuts down on the size of the image in the viewfinder. I think it is definitely worth the price, and fixes a small drawback in the camera design. When I first used the extender, I found that the included optics produce an image that is now just right, as you can also see the digital readout info at the bottom of the viewfinder without straining to see it.

Keep your nose tip off screen

By

from Kansas City, KS  -  Professional

I bought the extenders for both my camera bodies: Canon 5D MKII and 7D. Without the extender my nose tip touched the live view screen. Found this uncomfortable and also the skin left marks on the screen. The extender eliminated both these problems.

GOOD CHOICE

By

from Charlotte, North Carolina  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The biggest reason I got this was because I like to use the eyepiece when taking photos but would leave a face smudge on the LCD screen each time. This product has helped a great deal and I definitely recommend it to anyone who has the same problem.

Buy several, you will need them.

By

from New Baltimore, MI  -  Professional

I always keep one on my camera and several in my camera bag as they do fall off unnoticed very easily. Might add a drop of super glue in its track to alleviate this issue. Since super glue has only good adhesiveness in a pulling motion but can be fairly easily broken in a sliding motion, you can remove it, but would not recommend doing this. Instead your best bet is to buy extra standard view finder pads and glue the extender on to it. Now you can remove it quite easily and just put one of the extra standard pads back on the on the camera.

Does all it says it will

By

from Wildomar and San Pedro CA.  -  Semi-Professional

I have to wear glasses and with the viewer on the back of the camera my nose was rubbing and getting marks on my screen. This is worth owning.

Keeps You Nose From Smashing LCD

By

from York, PA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Just what I needed. The only issue I have is that when I put my camera into my Tamrac Backpack the extender gets caught on the backpack and pops off. Which is not a problem if I just take my time putting the camera away.

Will the Canon EP-EX15 II fit the Canon

By

from New Baltimore, Mi  -  Professional

Answer to the question if the Canon EP-EX II will fit the Canon, the answer is yes. As to which camera they fit, you can find the entire listing on the mfg. The extender is a very handy and comfortable accessory, and makes looking through the view finder much easier. The only issue that u I have is that I need to buy these in bulk as they are easily pulled off of the the mount.

Questions about this item:

Rich W  I'm using this extender on a T4i, and its perfect as I wear glasses. However, the extender appears to be tricking out the proximity sensor and the LCD screen never displays now - unless I disable "LCD auto off" in the settings page. Anyone else have this issue? Any solution? I really like the proximity feature so I don't get the glare of the (lit) LCD in my face - but I also require the extender..... Thanks!
JOSEPH F  I haven't had this issue, and I also wear glasses, but I had a 50D.
Shopper  does this fit the canon 5D3?
TONG H K  Have not tried fitting on 5D3. Based on 5D2, this fits but it'll be thinner than the original eyepiece, hence creating a narrower middle part like a dumbell shape when extended. If 5D3 has similar eyepiece to 5D2 then it'll be the same case.
Shopper  Will this work on a 60D ?
GARY B  The answer is Yes, the Canon eyepiece EP-EX15 II for the EOS 5D also fits on my EOS 60D.
