Nikon DK-17C overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon DK-17C -3.0 Correction Eyepiece is a replacement eyepiece for select Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras. This eyepiece helps to compensate for nearsighted vision. Made from soft and durable rubber, the surface of this DK-17C Correction Eyepiece provides a comfortable surface for the area around your eye while framing a subject through the camera's viewfinder. It also serves to block unwanted and potentially distracting light from entering the viewfinder. The DK-17C -3.0 Correction Eyepiece mounts easily and securely to the viewfinder and is compatible with select Nikon cameras.

To determine which Nikon diopter is best suited for you, it is recommended to consult your eye care professional. Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras without built-in adjustable eyepiece correction have a base diopter value of -1. -1 is considered the optimum starting point for the majority of SLR or DSLR users with normal vision. No combination of that -1 base value and a diopter's value is required to arrive at the final desired value. In other words, if you require a diopter of +2, simply add a +2 diopter to your camera.

Nikon DK-17C reviews

DK-17C -3.0 Correction Eyepiece is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diopter for those needing more than the built-in correction Aging eyes are part of life. Nikon provided built-in correction to all of their prosumer and professional cameras. The problem is that those with older eyes need more than the diopter correction provided by the camera. The DK17C -3.0 diopter allows for photographers that wear glasses to get a clearer sight picture through the viewfinder. Most people won't require the -3.0 correction on top of the camera built-in correction, but all you have to do is use the camera adjustment to get that just right view. Would have loved if I could have coupled this diopter with the DK17M , magnifying diopter, but alias, you can't stack them together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you wear glasses, the only choice on Nikon pro bodies. Used on a D500, D800, D4, D810... the only choice for people wearing glasses (Allow you to take a shot without glasses). As far as I am concerned it help me composing my shot better than with glasses on, especially the selection of AF points. A must in my books. I believe the item is available in different correction (+/-) to accommodate everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only choice for a Nikon D4 Has my sight is not too good, the basic dioptric correction in my Nikon D4 was not sufficient. the DK17C allowed me to increase that correction and have an accurate view of my subject through the viewfinder. An essential accessory for short sighted people in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered My eyes have gone past what I can adjust on my D800. This fixed the problem nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exact replacement I had to buy one of these when I knocked my D3 over on its tripod last August (2008). Talk about a nightmare situation...... It took all of about 3 seconds to re-attach it, and I am back up and running! The only con is that it is fairly expensive for what it is. But what can you expect?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Me This eyepiece provided an easy, immediate solution to a radical change in my vision, following surgery for a retinal detachment. ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly needed I have not yet put this on my new D800, but I've used Nikon diopters in the past on other Nikon bodies and they're superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more glasses Eliminates the need for glasses when taking photographs; a whole lot easier.
