I am using an Alphatron EVF. When I am operating shoulder mount and break into sweat the diopter fogs up and it's basically impossible to work that way. Any advice would be great. Thanks!

Thank you Robin, while this looks like a great product I am not sure it will work in my Alphatron. 

Has anyone tried anti-fog sprays? I am reading wildly different reviews on Amazon and I am reluctant to spray any of this stuff on my EVF without having someone here confirm that I won't ruin the diopter and that it actually works.

Tried the anti-fog fluid a few times and it didn’t work for me. One solution would be to punch a small hole in the rubber eyecup, insert and secure a short bit of tubing, and use the tube to suck out the warm moist air.

How about a eyepiece cup heater unit?

 

There is a Denz heated eye cup on eBay https://ebay.us/YmBWKC  I wonder if I could somehow have that fitted to my (more budget friendly) Alphatron. Or is there a lens it these?

Heated eye cup is a standard equipment at least with film cameras but you could swap the cable to fit your needs to d-tap for example to power up the unit but i do not know they natively make heated eye cups for your evf.
