Default Fuji HS10 Eyecup

Can anyone tell me if the HS10 has a rubber eyecup surround please?

Not what I can see from the video reviews and the Fuji Hand-on reviews that I have seen so far. Their is a sensor in the eye view finder that lets it switch from LCD screen to eye view finder when you put your eye up to it based on blocked light pattern. I did a quick check of accessories and see none listed.

Default Sensor in HS 10 eyecup

Not so new. My old Konica/Minolta A2 has that feature.
You might be able to buy an after market rubber eyecup for the HS10. I bought one for my A2 and it still allowed the eyecup sensor to work per usual.

Will definitely look for an eyecup then. The fact that it doesn't come with one is a slight annoyance :/

You can turn off that sensor and change it manually if you like. I found the sensor to be a nuisance instead of a help myself.

I'm finding that more & more, too. Another plus to deactivating it is that it saves on power.

The sensor is just another shortcoming in what could (and should) have been a much better camera. I turned it off as well.
