I got sick of leaving a greazy smudge on the back screen of my 7D, so I bought an extended eyepiece on Ebay , its a JJC EC6.

But how on earth do I remove the standard one from the back of my 7D,

I've pushed it up quite hard, but Im not game to push too hard, i thought it'd just pop off...Help !!

You have to press in on the sides to release the hooks that holds it in place, then slide upwards. The 7D, 1D Mark III and some other similar cameras have a heavier duty eyepiece than you find on a 600D, for example.

They are pretty much all the same.
There are also pictures in the manual.
Hold the two sides, press, and lift.

FWIW - I solved the greasy smudge problem simply by switching eyes.

They are not at all the same. The smaller eyepieces rely on a spring only. You just pull upwards. The larger have hooks that are released by pressing on the sides. If you don't do that, but just apply more violence, you'll pull them off in the same way, but then you ruin the hooks, sooner or later.

Thanks for this post. I had the same problem and after seeing this, I ordered a similar piece for my 60D this morning! :-)

Let us know how you like the extended eyepiece.

I considered getting one, but saw a lot of comments that it made the viewfinder too small and "tunnel-like", so a lot of users seemed to just take it off and sell it on eBay after a short while.

How, how much did that cost? Did you order them online, or get them from a local store? Were they hard to install?

Free. My sister-in-law is an optometrist. I put in for a new pair every couple of years.
