I think you can get a little plastic solid plate that will slide into place over the viewfinder eye piece. I've yet to find one for my cameras though.

So I use a cloth or even a hat.

Yeah, D810 and D500 have this. Wish Canon had it on the 5D cameras.

So I'm working on a 3D print of the Canon Eyecup Extender for the 7D, 5D and 1D series.

If I was to fill up the innards all black and shorten the thickness, would people be interested?

So this would be a piece to replace your eyepiece that is solid and won't let in any light and then when you are done taking the exposure you just swap it out back to the regular eyepiece? That would be pretty cool.

Correct. So it will be the same as the 3D printed extender but instead of a hole to look through, it will be filled in completely (solid/blacked out). So you can't look through it at all.

Just take off your eyecup, insert the modified extender onto the camera and thats it. So basically, you're swapping out the eyecup for the blacked out extender. It will still allow you to insert your eyecup onto the blacked out extender to hold your eyecup and not lose it.

I'll see if I can also get it printed to show an example. But is this something people would be interested in?

Why would I want to swap eyepieces every time I shoot long exposures? The point of having a built in iris like the higher camera models have is so that swapping parts is unnecessary. The hat trick or tape flap method is quicker.

Honestly, if someone wants a built-in iris like higher camera, buy a camera that has it. Buying a camera that doesn't have one, you know what you're getting. Unfortunately, there is nothing on the market that even exists (as far as I know) from aftermarket companies that offers built-in iris. Even if there was, it would still be an adapter.

A hat trick or tape flap is a quicker method but maybe someone wants a piece of plastic that acts as a cover without the potential of it either falling off or having to replace it. Its a personal preference.

An eyepiece with a built in iris would be nice.
I do a few wraps of gaffers tape around the upper part of one of my tripod's legs so I always have it handy.

Unfortunately, a 3D printed built-in iris would be more complicated. Only thing I'm able to do is take my existing CAD for the extender and filling the hole solid so that it is blacked out and can't see through.

The extender or the solid version for long exposure.

Agreed, something like that would have to be made out of multiple parts and would probably be bulky and pricey.
