    Replacement eye cup for Bronica GS-1?

    Does anyone know of a source of replacement eye cups for this camera? The one I rec'd with mine is flattened and is really of no use (unless someone knows of a way to remold it).

    TIA.

    Yes, it's called a Waist Level Finder...

    Seriously, I haven't touched the prism on my GS-1(non-metering) since I put the WLF on about a year ago. (took the speed grip off the year before, too. It's so much lighter and easy to handle now...)

    Sorry, I guess that doesn't answer your question, does it?

    Ok... if you really want to know, here is a short-term solution. One of my Nikons was missing the eye cup when I got it. I cut a rubber disc from an old inner tube about 1 1/2", and cut a hole a little smaller than the diameter of the eye-piece attachment. When stretched to fit, it forms a convenient cone shape remarkably like an eyepiece cup. Not the perfect solution, but it did the trick until I found a suitable replacement.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    In NY, try kohscamera.com- he often has Bronica parts, just didn't have the part I needed when I needed it. Alternative might be Dirk at japanexposures.com. He got me a new battery compartment door recently- it wasn't cheap (!), but if you need it, you need it, and it wasn't to be had in the US.

    I second what SW said, Jimmy Koh has an amazing collection of Bronica parts, and he is really easy to work with, and very professional.

    KEH.com has all kinds of stuff like this.

    Also try searching Ebay, FeeBay, EvilBay, or whatever nasty name people are calling it.

    Alright - thanks for the info (no tire tubes for me, though!). I'll see if those sites have what I need.
