Since the other reviews have discussed how the product works, I won't spend a lot of time discussing that. I would like to address a couple of issues that were mentioned:
1) Hard to put on: It is true that it does take some effort to put it on the first time; although it does get easier to do after taking it off and putting it on several times. I personally would rather have it a little hard to put on (and come off accidentally) than having it a little too easy to put on (and come off accidentally).
2)Using with glasses: I wear contacts or glasses - depending on conditions - and it does work with glasses and is comfortable although it does cut off the corners of the viewfinder a bit when you do so. I should note that I am very near-sighted and my glasses have a very high refractive index which makes for a very narrow field of view.
3) Blocks the LCD: It does do this. Although, I just push it up and out of the way when it is a problem.

Overall, I like using this eye cup. It is one of the more comfortable ones that I have used.

I bought this for my Nikon D5300. It does fit the eyepiece correctly but the hard plastic mounting piece part of the eyecup covers the top edge of the tilt screen preventing you from opening it without removing the eyecup. I thought this might be a problem but I had hoped it would just be the flexible rubber part of the eye cup that would interfere with flipping out the viewer and that I would be able to bend the rubber part out of the way, but you can't. I'm keeping it for when I'm outside in really bright light but it will not stay on my camera all the time like I had hoped.

Eye think not

By JimbeauPhoteau

from Nashville TN

Comments about Hoodman HoodEYE Eyecup for Nikon SLRs with 22mm Square Viewfinder Mount:

Hood mount is too large for the D5100 view screen to open and close.
Otherwise it does the job it is intended for.

    I always purchase the Hoodman Eyecup for all my DSLR camera bodies. Shuts out all distracting external light but make sure you buy the correct size to match your camera's viewer (square or round).

        Bought this for my wife because she wears glasses and had difficulty seeing the information in the viewfinder during bright sunlight. It was easy to install, and works great for her. She no longer has to contend with the sunlight preventing her from seeing in the viewfinder.

            The eyecup does a good job of blocking extraneous light. It can be rotated to accomodate either left or reight-eyed users. It is somewhat difficult to install and remove, but the only time I need to remove it is to replace it with a magnifying viewfinder for macro work.

                This is my third HoodEYE Eyecup I've ordered from B&H. I consider it a mandatory accessory to all my DLSR's. It is adjustable and blocks out 99% of the daylight coming in from around the stock eyecup.

                      I purchased this item to improve close-up manual focusing in bright conditions. I enjoy macro shooting and have found this eyecup to be very helpful. It took a couple weeks of adjusting to become comfortable using the eyecup but now I would not give it up. It is comfortable, easy to install on my D300, and inexpensive. It is a comfortable, pliable cup that does an excellent job of blocking side-lighting on bright days.

                            I haven't used my camera much since I installed this but it does seem work much better than the original eyecup. I wear glasses so this keeps out some light and is more comfortable when looking through my veiwfinder.

                                Blocks background glare for better viewfinder visibility. I didn't have the problems with installation other reviewers have. Be sure to tilt it like the instructions say. Only blocks a small portion of the LCD, no real loss of info.

                                  A sturdy and rugged eyecup. I expect many years of fine performance from this product.

                                    I had originally wanted to purchase the eyecup to help my wife see the information on the bottom of the viewfinder. After noticing that I was beginning to have problems reading the information myself I added an eyecup for my camera as well. The cups work very well, they keep out stray light and allow me to read the picture information in the viewfinder with ease. The cup rotates for left/right eye viewing and for vertical shots. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

                                      helps you see through the viewfinder much easier and frame the shot faster
