Meet the C-Cup, An Improved Viewfinder For The Canon EOS C100

Found this project by Andrew Alden Miller at Kickstarter. An alternative viewfinder for the Canon EOS C100 (Adorama | B&H) .

A custom eyecup that fits perfectly to the Canon C100, transforming the EVF from “unusable” into ideal.

The C-Cup

The C-Cup is a traditionally shaped eyecup designed to fit perfectly to the Canon C100, improving the camera’s electronic viewfinder and overall ergonomics. Anyone who has picked up the camera knows that the C100’s EVF is not what it could be. In the C-Cup, we’ve designed a simple and inexpensive solution that makes the C100’s viewfinder what it should have been in the first place.

Viewfinder For The Canon EOS C100
Functionality and Compatibility
The C-Cup is designed to look and feel like an extension of the camera. It can be used with either eye, providing a comfortable, flexible cushion to push against and a solid third point of contact. It wraps around the eye to block out light, and it doesn’t disrupt the camera’s shape or balance. Simply put, the C-Cup allows you to comfortably use your C100’s EVF so you can fully take advantage of the camera’s excellent form-factor.We’ve designed the C-Cup as simply as possible so that we can make it as cheaply as possible. The C-Cup doesn’t add a diopter or lens – or anything for that matter. It simply changes the shape of the EVF’s cushion. However simple, the C-Cup dramatically changes your shooting experience for a reasonable price.To make the C-Cup inexpensively, we had to design it as a single piece. Because it’s a single piece that form-fits to the C100’s existing EVF, the C-Cup is not compatible with any other camera.The C-Cup is compatible with standard-sized chamois.
