Anyone else having trouble with the view adjustment button on the back on 1DX keeps turning each time you place the camera to your eye?


Can anything be done about it.. it is driving me crazy

I think it's more annoying that it's very difficult to adjust it with the eyecup still mounted. When using the standard eyecup, you can just remove it while adjusting, but if you want to use an eyecup with a lens inside, it's difficult to see the combined result from the camera's adjustment and the lens together.

Nope and Nope (i have two 1DX)

the rubber eyecup should cover the Diopter adjuster shouldn't it ?


I did have trouble with my 1Dmk4 - but only when i was using an Aquatech eyepiece, and an Aquatech rain cover, and switching from portrait to landscape frequently.
A bit of Gaffa at half time fixed the issue

Yep, that's the reason that I asked that question. That was the only way that what the OP described as happening could have happened.
