  • Lost my E-3's eyecup and then .....



    What are the odds of that then? And furthermore, I wonder if Nikon eycups are cheaper than the Oly ones?

    ps - I couldn't find a forum that fitted this little anecdote.

    So why didn't you pick up the lens cap that's lying just off the side of the track

    If you happen on a hotshoe cover, there's a good market for those on here...

      Lens caps are ten a penny on the Northumbrian moors. Hardly worth bending down for.

      The sheep eat them, they think they're bilberries. Anyhow, I've got two winging their way in my direction along with an E1 LCD cover and the eyecup.

        A friend of mine has been taking some shots in our village, he mentioned the shot he was after and the viewpoint. I decided to go to the same spot some days later and noticed something shining in the grass, it was his polarising filter. I must have had my tripod legs in the same spot as his even thougth I was shooting a different view.
        Must say, he didn't find my lens hood I lost on the same shoot:-(

          Just think, John, somewhere there might be a Nikon user with your E3 eyecup fitted to his camera - one way to improve a D300 I suppose!

          Lovely picture of the track, is that a local walk for you?

            Thanks. It's not very local - about 25 miles away. But it's a bit of moorland I regularly visit and is very popular with walkers.

            I was going to this bit:

              In years gone by, I sowed Norwegian rivers with Nikon and Canon lens caps, but now, having seen the light and having bought an E-3 in February, I was sitting trying out a wired remote and unscrewed the little black cap on the camera. After trying unsuccessfully to make the remote work (Hahnel), I unscrewed it and lo and behold, the little cap had disappeared. Frantic searching and brushing of carpet, shaking clothing to no avail. I was mortified. My brand new pride and joy was secondhand already! After noticing similar escapades on forums, I sent to Luton camera for a replacement for this, the flash cover and the hotshoe cover (paranoid).
              I fitted the replacement and was happy again. Two days later I found I'd safely stowed the cap in my pocket all along (senior moment?), so now I had a spare. Shortly after I sent for an eyecup (more paranoia) and another item and the rather clunky Luton Camera site double charged me for postage, but unbidden, the guys there sent me ANOTHER remote release cap. Nice of them but I feel I now have enough, especially as I don't trust the release enough to use it!
