Shooting with eye glasses is super annoying

1 year 5 months ago #747713 by Vladimir
I got side tracked here and nearly forgot that I came here to post about my new eyeglasses and how much I enjoy shooting with these things on.  Actually  not.  What a PITA, especially during bright sunshine days.  I don't know how you all do it, but this is annoying.  I might need to get contacts for the days I'm going out with my camera.

Same. I can't shoot anything with my glasses (using the viewfinder).

The only problem I've ever had is not seeing the entire frame, and the icons outside the frame.

I need to not wear glasses when looking at the subject, reading glasses when working with the camera and menus, but not when looking through the viewfinder, and when outside on bright Sunny days, I  need dark Sunglasses. So two pair of glasses that need to be put on and off. This has been a significant problem for many years. So, now the Sunglasses get put on top of my head when not in use, and the reading glasses have a string around my neck so they can rest on my chest when not in use. I also hat when in the Sun, so when shooting this baseball type hat gets turned around backwards.

I got used to mine. 
It was many years ago. 
I always choose frames that have the glass close to my eyes. 
I am very aware of cropping before I shoot, so I can see the whole image to the edges.

Yep, we all have the same issue with our eyes.  I started wearing contacts when I head out shooting for that exact reason.

G'day Vladimir

Like most commonly experienced issues, the solution is available and not expensive .... go to the camera maker's site and look up "dioptre adjustment viewfinder accessories"

Here's the equivalent for the Pentax range (that I have used in the past)
PENTAX Diopter Correction Lens Adapter
www.pentaxforums.com/accessoryreviews/pe...-lens-adapter-m.html
The Correction Lens Adapter fits all PENTAX DSLRs and film cameras


Hope this helps

My glasses have progressive lenses, most of my finders have rubber eyecups - never a problem with viewing or focus. Never had use for an LCD screen outdoors.

Can't you adjust your diopter so it matches your eyes?

I wear glasses, but just focus my camera on something close, then I spin my diopter till the image is sharp without my glasses.  Problem solved.
