Eyepiece extender for the 5D mark III?

[ Edited ]

I´m looking for an eyepiece extender like the "Canon Eyepiece Extender EP-EX15", but for the 5D mark III.

Thanks for any help.

Regards,

Re: Eyepiece extender for the 5D mark III?

The 5D Mark III uses Eyecup Eg, I believe.

 

There is not an eyepiece extender made for use with cameras using that eyecup, AFAIK.

 

You are aware that the eyepiece extender reduces the size of the viewed image considerably and makes viewing sort of "tunnel-like"?

 

There are some third party viewfinder attachments offered. Perhaps one of those would work for whatever it is you want to do.

Thank you very much for your help.

All I want is to put my nose away from the LCD. I guess this a problem many others want to solve.

I´m aware of that tunnel efect ,-( but hopping that it would be not that bad, but I don´t know.

Any firther help, please.

Thanks.

Confirmation: it´s an Eg type of eyepice.

I only found a Dioptric Eg piece and an anti-fog Eg piece.

And the Angle C eyepiece.

No extender from Canon ,-( for 5D Mark III.

Maybe another brand, but I cannot find one.

The Angle Finder C is nice, but not something you will want to use all the time.

 

There probably are third party viewfinder magnifiers that will fit... But they also aren't something you are going to want to use all the time.

 

Really.... I'd just suggest getting used to the existing viewfinder and eyecup. Millions of people use them without a problem.
