A lot of filmmakers love to use their Zacuto, CarrySpeed, LCDVF and other viewfinders on their DSLRs. Some literally don’t shoot without them. People who use ENG style cameras only really ever use viewfinders as it’s the only way of operating the camera properly.
I don’t use viewfinders when I don’t have to, just not my thing. One time though, when I just can’t shoot without a viewfinder even now is when I shoot outside. Even on an overcast day, it helps, on a sunny day it’s literally impossible to shoot properly without one.
Unlike the rubber eyecups, i-cuff is made of fabric, which is washable, waterproof and works well both with and without glasses. I don’t wear glasses, but I could see how i-cuff could really improve the viewing experience. It wraps around the face much better and you don’t have to press yourself firmly against the viewfinder, which would be very uncomfortable with a common rubber eyecup. Made out breathable fabric it also reduces fogging which is also a common problem with viewfinders.
i-Cuff comes in 3 sizes, DV, HD, & PRO depending on the camera you use. The smaller one is just $29.95 and the other 2 are $45, so there is literally no excuse not to get one if use viewfinders a lot.
