Canon 60D Viewfinder Focus

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone I have a quick question to ask (sorry for the random thread) on my 60d I lost the eye cup but don't have enough time to order a new one online I was just wondering if anyone knows some sort of a way to stick the little scrolling wheel in place for the viewfinder focus? Superglue etc is out of the question and my local camera shops wont even order in a new eye cup never mind stocking them sadly. Any reply is much appreciated smile.gif

tl;dr - How can I fix the viewfinder focus wheel in place without superglue?

I would guess to try to hold in in place using a tooth pick (perhaps flat rather than round). Thin cardboard (cereal box) or even thin foam like an egg carton.

Hot glue,as you can pry it off when the piece comes in.

I'm not going to take off my own cameras eye piece to try to hold it in place.

Yep, gaff tape first (if you can tear it down to that size), maybe electrical as a secondary choice..
