Vello ESN-DK23 Eyeshade for Select Nikon Cameras

You Pay: $17.95
Product Highlights
  • Large Oval Shape for Eye Comfort
  • Seals Out Stray Light
  • Rotates 360º for Left or Right Eye
  • Rotates for Horizontal or Vertical View
  • Soft and Durable Rubber
  • Prevents Scratching of Eyeglasses
  • Fits Select Nikon Cameras

The ESN-DK23 Eyeshade for Select Nikon Cameras from Vello is a replacement eyepiece for select Nikon cameras that provides a large, oval eyecup for more comfortable viewing through the viewfinder. The large shape of the eyecup improves the image quality in the viewfinder by sealing out all extraneous light. It can rotate 360º to accommodate both the left and right eye and horizontal and vertical shooting positions. The eyecup extends from the viewfinder somewhat and works well for photographers who wear eyeglasses because it rests evenly on the eyeglass surface, blocking stray light and providing a clearer image. The soft yet durable rubber design is comfortable for those who do not wear eyeglasses and will not scratch or damage the glasses of those who do. It mounts easily and securely to the camera's viewfinder. 

Compatible with the Following Cameras:
Nikon D90, D300, D300S, D600, D610, D5000, D5100, D5200, D7000, D7100

      Only had this a short time, but used it for 3 sessions and does what it's supposed to do. In addition, keeps my nose off of the viewing screen better, too ... blocks out light nicely. It does cover part of the upper LCD screen when you look at it, but with a little effort, you can see around it, or it's easy to slide off. Doesn't fit "tightly" on the eyepiece, but it doesn't "fall off" either ... so I find that a plus. All in all, good product ... happy with it.

      The ESN-DK23 Eyeshade was an accesory I really wanted to love as I viewed it as a nice upgrade to the standard issue eyepeice. I'll start with the positives. It pretty much eliminates any light leaks and fits itself to the shape and contours of your eye socket. This made it a more comfortable fit and was really nice to use. Precisely the reason I bought it. The main drawbacks to it was it is loose fitting. I didn't mind that it covered some of the LCD as it is pretty large. If you take your camera pretty much everywhere you go (hanging off your shoulder,) than the eyepeice is susceptible to being knocked off your camera. It's happened to me on numerous occasions with people running up to me with it, sitting few feet from my car in the parking lot, etc. So, I've been lucky. Great idea, needs to be tighter fitting.

        Comments about Vello ESN-DK23 Eyeshade for Select Nikon Cameras:

        This eyeshade works well with my glasses, and I am more quickly acquiring a consistant image in the viewfinder with it installed. With the extra point of contact with the camera, it also seems to help me steady my handheld shots. Now I see why so many people use these!

                    Looked good. Fit well but loose and sure enough fell off on my first outing with it.Also was a problem with the articulated viewer on the Nikon 5200, but I could have worked with that problem.

                        OK for the money. Not sure how well the mount will hold out over time, but it is great at limiting ambient light from entering the eye-side of the viewfinder, which is why you buy it

                            the eyecup is a good size and works while wearing glasses. The only negative is that it interferes with the display opening and closing.

                                  First, B&H service was great on this item.

                                  I wear glasses and I bought the eyeshade thinking that it might help looking through the viewfinder. I have a Nikon D7000. I found it did cut out some of the peripheral light, but not as much as if you are not wearing glasses. Also, the eyeshade is not very tight when it is attached to the back of the viewfinder.
                                  In summary, this is a better item for your camera if you don't wear glasses.

                                    This great accessory not only blocks the sun from the viewfinder, but also it prevents perspiration from befouling the monitor.

                                    There isn't anything negative to say.

                                    This contoured eyepiece makes all the difference in the world in using my Nikon D300S. It works great with or without glasses and allows for fast accurate composition. It's surprising Nikon doesn't provide it as an OEM accessory.

                                      I'm using the eyeshade on my Nikon D600 and it is a lifesaver. Makes the camera so much more comfortable to use, no more smashing the camera against my face!! I would pay for this product over and over and over. As mentioned by some of the other comments, there is a slight hang over of the eyeshade onto the lcd screen but nothing so noticeable that it takes away from reviewing photos.

                                        Best money ever spent. I needed something that blocks all the light and could be used with either eye. All you have to do is rotate it so that the extended section of the eye piece is on the outside of the eye. It can be rotated for vertical shots as well. It's very pliable and comfortable on the eye orbit. I have it on a D600
