Rezajune wrote something about it ... you can do a search on ebay and I believe they are for a canon or are made by canon ... they are cheap $$

Rezajune said it had to be worked into the area but works well in his post about this.

Good luck

I got a rubber eye cup intended for the Canon AE series for $3 at a local camera store. Didn't have to overpay on eBay (last one I saw there went for $11!). Didn't have to pay shipping & handling. Didn't have to wait for it to be delivered.

There is one minor problem that I've encountered which is not specific to the Canon. You can fairly easily move the diopter control on the EVF when putting the eye cup onto the viewer. I've considered putting a dab of rubber cement at the top of the diopter wheel to keep it from moving yet could be easily removed if desired.

Dick is right, just go through the bins at a store if you can Willow. I took mine off my old Canon A1, but there should be plenty around that will fit. I also heard that an old Nikon fits well too. I suggest you get more than one, they do come off and can get lost easy Will.

Hi
This was posted on the FZ10 group on yahoo by James on 7th Dec.

Just for the heck of it the other day I tried the eye cup from my Mamiya 645 1000S. It's round but all rubber. By pulling hard I was able to stretch it to fit my FZ10. It's on there tight so I don't believe you would need to use any type of glue.
Should work for FZ20 too
Hope its helps
