Okay, on the Arriflex SR2 S16mm. I have read that you could possibly damage/alter your film if your eye or something is not covering the eye cup. For instance, if I were to be filming and I am holding the camera low and raise it belt level, swing it around, where I am just moving the camera with my hands. Without my eye covering the eye cup.
One film pro that I should always have eye cup covered so to just put a sock on it and tape it. Another film guy said it won't matter and that his eye would come off the eye cup numerous times with no ill effect. I don't have the $$ to play around and experiment so why do you experts say about this situation? Thanks.
