    I do a lot of macro photography and over the years have gone through several eye cups on various cameras. Eventually for one reason or another they do wear out. I purchased a couple of cheap eye cups from other retailers and was sorely disappointed. They didn't fit well and were made of poor materials making them near useless. Finally I bit the bullet,(the Hoodman is not cheap), and gave it a try. The Hoodeye is a very well made comfortable product. It screws on making it much more unlikely to fall off, and also has its own glass eye piece to help protect your camera's eyepiece. I'm definatly going to replace my other camera's eye cups with this one. It's pricey compared to others, but well worth the price. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    All the good points for this product have been already mentioned in the other reviews for the HoodEye EyeCup.
    There is just one major problem/shortcoming on this product: The inability to use this product in conjunction with the Nikon DK-17C Diopters. Despite the diopter adjustment available on the D3, I still need further diopter power and have to use a DK-17C. The HoodEye cup rubber is too thick to allow the DK-17C to be inserted. So, I continue to use the Nikon DK19 Eyecup + Nikon DK-17C dipoter and prefer this combo over the HoodEye eyecup.

      Comments about Hoodman HoodEYE Eyecup for Select Nikon DSLRs:

      I bought my first Hoodman eyecup two years ago for my D4, and liked it so much, that I immediately bought one for my new D810. It does a great job of blocking stray light, gives a little bit of magnification over the stock eyecup, and increases the distance between your nose and camera for more comfortable shooting. It's also very easy to install and a great accessory for shooting long events like races or weddings, where you can't often predict the direction of stray light, because you're too busy shooting.

            The only thing i don't like about it is you have to spin it to take a portrait that spin it back for landscape shots.

              This inexpensive device keeps light out of the viewfinder when you are shooting and you will find it essential after one use. It is so good you will wonder why you did not buy it earlier.

                  I wear both contact lenses and on occasion glasses. I purchased both the regular HoodEYE Eyecup and the Eyecup for glasses for my new Nikon D800. They work wonderfully well. I have both for my Nikon D300s as well. The screw in model for the round eye frame of the D800 is easier to install and de-install than the D300s. But that is a matter of Nikon design not Hoodman. Hoodman has seen a need and filled it. Bravo!

                    I like it a lot. I shoot sports and regularly quickly raise the camera to my eye to catch the action. Sometimes a little too quickly. The Nikon DK-19 is soft rubber and helps some, but this HoodEYE is wider and firmer - so I'm not thumping myself in the eyebrow/orbital bone anymore - and yes it was painful after a while.

                          I use the HoodEYE on my Nikon D3 and it does its job and does it well. It blocks the external light because it conforms to the eye, and is very comfortable as well. I find the viewfinder is brighter and much easier to see both the scene and the displayed data.

                            I purchased this for my D800 and it was easy to install. The eye piece has made it much easier to shoot on bright days as it blocks out most of the light entering around your eye allowing you to really focus on your subject. I strongly recommend this product!!!

                            it does block peripheral light from entering and interfering with the picture display of the viewfinder,but it still does not prevent your nose/face parts from touching the lcd thereby still allowing the lcd to get all smeared from sweat etc. It would be a 5 star if and only if it was positioned maybe a half inch more out and away from the lcd by simply just adding a half inch shim/washer to the threaded part of the eyecup. How much money would that cost the maker of this product? The answer is just a few cents more which I am sure people would not mind spending and the product, I bet, would sell like hot cakes. What's with all the greed going around like the plague with rich and powerful corporations?

                              Before I bought this for my d700, I shot an 8 hour wedding. My nose was sore for days after pressing a camera up to it for so many hours straight ( I swear I don't have a big nose!) Bought this to help fix the problem and had a much better shooting experience the following weekend. Also helped to reduce eye strain. I like this one much better than the one I bought for my d200 a few years ago because it doesn't require you to take the LCD protective screen cover off.

                                When shooting in highly directional, bright light, especially when that light is coming in from the side, it can be difficult to see the viewfinder clearly. Because the HoodEYE Eyecup wraps around the eye, it blocks virtually all of the stray light, making composing and focusing much easier, in even the harshest light environment. Also, since it can rotate, it works whether the photographer is left or right-eyed.

                                      A well made little addition to any camera. For me a lifesaver. My eyes are quite deep in the head so to say , so I always have false light from aside. This Hoodman cup blocks that resulting in a much brighter image seen in the finder. Very well constructed . Once I realised I had to close the finder before I could remove the original glass in order to mount this one it was a breeze to fit. The Nikon D@x I have and possibly all ? has a blocking mechanism that prevents taking off the finder glass when the finder is not closed.
