Default Orion

Go to Orion site and click on About Us.
There is a list of international dealers with 2 listed in the UK.
Maybe one of them can help.

Default Eyeguard

Tony

I use the standard rubber eyeguard on my C2100.
You need to push on the eyeguard, when taking a picture, so you can get as close as possible to the viewfinder. If you don't , you won't get a full view through the viewfinder. This causes a little problem if you are trying to fill the picture with a subject. Takes a little experimenting.

Default Hood for LCD?

I love our C-2100 refurb, too - Got it at the end of July and it's been wonderful. I've seen these eyecups, but I'd be more interested in a hood for the LCD screen so I can see it better outdoors. Any suggestions on that?

Use the viewfinder! It works great outdoors, because it's shielded from direct sunlight. The image displayed on the electronic viewfinder is the same as is displayed on the LCD. I'll agree the resolution isn't the greatest, but it has been sufficient for framing my shots.

There are many times where I use the LCD over the viewfinder when shooting pictures of my rc trucks. I try to keep the camera as low as possible, and I don't really like laying on the ground :P

I use the viewfinder alot too, never had a problem with sun getting in there though. I am sure with glasses those would help alot.
