Eye Piece frustration

Have lost two in the last couple of weeks, is it me or do they seem to be a bit easy to come off? May have to superglue it in place!

Re: Eye Piece frustration

Didn't want mine to go missing so pinched this idea from another forum
[IMG][/IMG]

Just a piece of trimmed down electrical tape, has been in place over six months no problems.
It's wrapped around the lower eyepiece and stuck back on itself at the top and then stuck to the bottom of the viewfinder and behind the screen.
Apologies for the hasty photo edit

Re: Eye Piece frustration

I have lost 4 eye caps on my Em-5. I reckon that's 60. Ridiculous. Yesterday I bought the super glue.

Re: Eye Piece frustration

Not the best fitting eye caps in the world are they? Only ever lost one other since the 80's!

I'd avoid superglue - the vapour affects the surrounding plastic. How about those little sticky jelly-like pads that (eg) Prit make?

The deed has been done. Stuck like you know what to the proverbial blanket.
