clever design
This is a great replacement eyecup. It solves a couple of issues: one, you don't have to worry about what to do with your cover/cap (I used to velcro it to the side of my z-finder body) and; two, it auto closes (using magnet) to protect your screen from the sun. No, you can't use a chamois cover, but the rubber is so soft that it feels good, and the eyecup itself is washable.

Good Design
Excellent way to protect your EVF. I purchased this item to protect my Z-EVF Pro from the sun as well as conveniently providing comfort for viewing. Zacuto products are well worth the investments.

Great Product!
This is a great way to protect your EVF. I purchased this item to protect my Z-EVF from the sun and it works very well. It does take some practice to get use to opening it with you face but this is a product I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Takes Practice
It took me a little practice initially to get used to opening and closing it with the side of my face since the magnet would snap it back if I didn't get the right angle or a good "grip". But, now it has become pretty natural, and makes a huge difference to be hands free-- not, to mention, being free of the little cap on a string that would make noise hitting the camera. There's always a trade off, of course, and sometimes it's annoying to have it close up when I am only taking my eye off the z-finder for a second or two. But, in the end, better this occasional inconvenience than risking frying my lcd or evf.

Very Convenient
Using this for my gratical X, it really makes it so much easier to protect the inside of the eyecup. I love this new redesign however I do wish like the other person said that they allowed covers. My blue oyster plush cover does not for over the new eyecup because of the extra room the attached cover takes up. Would've been nice to use that as in the heat the rubber tends to capture a lot of sweat which is just gross. At least with a cover u can toss it or wash it and keep the actual eyepiece free of dirt or in this case sweat

Awesome
The autoclose eyecup by Zacuto is AMAZING! No longer do you have to struggle to get your protective cap onto your Zacuto eyepiece... this nifty little creation auto inserts into two little holes on the right side of the eyepiece that allow the rubber to flex back keepingthe protective cover ALWAYS perfectly aligned, and snapped 'in' tight enough to keep all dust out. This is a HUGE benefit, as previous eyecup protectors were very difficult to properly attach. They would never hold, always fall out, and were just not the best way to attach and protector for the eyepice. THIS however IS the perfect way. The ONLY gripe i have... is I wish they took into account people that use a Chamois....or 'plus cover' for their eyepiece which I do, in fact the one Zacuto sells. It will fit over the new model eyecup... however you will BARELY be able to open and close the autoclosing door/protector so I just took mine off. It took some getting used to, but the rubber used in this unit is much softer than the previous models rubber making it more of a comfortable feel. Ultimately chamois or not, this is the PERFECT eyepiece for those not wanting to fuss with their ZFinder/EVF and have superior protection.

love it
The eyecup's cap on the original z-finder sometimes got in the way or tangled in my other gear. It's so much easier for me to use this instead. Opens and closes very smoothly and is still extremely comfortable to use.
