Eye protection during shooting during bright sunlight

1 month 4 weeks ago #738881 by J Photo Man
When you are shooting in bright sunlight are you wearing sunglasses?  I do, and my glasses are polarized, so my LCD always looks off or hard to see at times.  I have sensitive eyes, so I need to wear glasses.  Any suggestions?

I didn't know that would happen, I don't know. A DSLR has an optical viewfinder so it shouldn't matter, but I'm sure that's not the advice you want to here.

Use a polarizer or ND filter to get some relief although they will affect your exposure settings.

I'm not certain that these will fit the mirrorless cameras, but I use these on my Canon DSLR cameras. The rubber piece can be rotated for left or right eye and portrait or landscape positioning of the camera. They slide into the original Canon eyepiece grooves, so are easy to switch from original eyepiece to this and back. I like the fact that it completely encloses the gap between the eye and camera, and is shaped to contour to our eye sockets. These work so well for me that I keep thinking "Why don't the cameras come with these?" When you look these up on Amazon, it now displays two versions, a fat extended version of the Canon original, and this elongated style that fits your eye socket. This elongated style is the cheaper one @ $10.00

Then, there are these for attaching to the camera LCD screen
