How to deal with glasses plus shallow eyepiece on Canon

Jump to last reply

Have a Canon Powershot S3 and getting a bit exasperated with framing my shots because of problems with my own corrected but poor vision. Sometimes I really can't use the flip-out screen either because the lighting of the image is skewed until I fiddle with the angle or because polarized sunglasses make it impossible to see the image at all -- and in any case, losing a lot of time while trying to fiddle with it and adjust focus.

Maybe it's habit, but I find the view-finder image more reliable IF I can see it to adjust focus, etc., but the soft-plastic cushion around it is too shallow to cut off surrounding light if I'm wearing glasses -- and of course, if I'm not wearing my glasses, I can't see the image in good detail.

Anyone know of any attachment that would form a funnel/cup around the viewfinder to cut off light OR some attachment to adapt to people who still wear glasses (because both contacts and lasik surgery are not possible)?

Suggestions?
