deep cup for my E-M5. I don't remember the circumstances but it did come

deeper than the standard E-M5 cup but not as deep as the optional E-M5
cup. I find it adequate for blocking extraneous light and haven't
considered getting the optional cup.

with the camera swinging back and forth across my ample belly. I would
think that's the perfect scenario to lose the cup. But it hasn't happened.
