    Nikon DK-19 reviews

    DK-19 Rubber Eyecup is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 311.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not What I Hoped As an eyeglass wearer, I hoped this would improve viewfinder use. In fact, this item added a slight additional spacing between my eye and the camera (D3), making corner-to-corner composition almost impossible (requiring extra firm pressure of my eyeglasses against the eyecup). I find the standard rubber eyepiece ring already effectively blocks side light, making this accessory unnecessary. On the plus side, it is of Nikon's typical high quality and it is easy to install (be careful of the viewfinder glass lens; installation actually provided an opportunity to clean the lens' inside surface - something I would not normally think of).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, conveneint, effective This is a pretty simple product but i makes a lot of difference when composing shots. I am used to having an eyecup on my film SLR and wanted one on my D700. I love this thing. It is very comfortable and shields your eyes from extraneous light It does stick out from the camera body about 3cm; however, on the D700 at least, you can fold the ends of the cup back over themselves towards the camera body, rendering it almost flush with the LCD screen when not in use. This protects the cup from getting damaged or snagging on something when not in use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Room for improvement. I was able to install this fairly fast and without any problems on my d800. I loved how it gave a little extra space between my face and the camera. It blocks the light coming into the viewfinder like it says it does when it isn't collapsed. The problem is that you have to be careful to not put too much pressure on it otherwise it will collapse. When I shoot from a tripod it works great. I recently shot a wedding and I had to constantly pull the eyecup back to its normal position. It was more of an inconvenience. If it wasn't for the low price I would have given it three stars. I will probably try my luck with a different product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrific While It Lasts I just purchased this eyecup for my new D3S but it appears to be the same eyecup I have purchased more times than I can remember for my two F5s over the past thirteen years. As a documentary photographer who wears glasses I readily will admit I have become dependent upon this eyecup. In fact, I keep purchasing another each time I lose the previous one. It is so easy to knock the eyecup from the camera that I usually purchase a couple of extras to keep in my bag so as not to have to deal with not having the eyecup on my camera. Perhaps one day Nikon will come up with something more durable but, until then, I'll just keep purchasing extras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have for me. I have 1 for each of my Nikon's. D700, D800, D810. It truly helps in more ways than one. 1) It keeps my cheek off the monitor. 2) It covers my eye comfortably and limits surrounding light in my view finder. And 3) I have the magnifier (Nikon DK-17m) as well and it fits that like a glove too. But 1 minor downside is that it will fog the glass if your to warm and you completely seal your eye, but I found that if I keep it ever so slightly ajar off the inside bridge of my eye/nose, (I use my right eye to shoot) the fogging won't happen. I suggest giving it a try. There are other options out there, however.........Their much larger, more expensive and more shallow. And with B&H customer service, you cant go wrong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an essential accessory! I've used this eyecup on my D3 for two years and love it. Unlike the Hoodman product, this eyecup allows for easy vertical shooting. Yes, it does tend to collaps upon itself, but I have not found that to be a problem. It still creates a comfortable light shield from my eye to the viewfinder, whether or not I'm wearing glasses. I have never had a problem with this eyecup falling off of my camera - not once. After two years, however, it has developed a small tear in it. I have ordered a replacement. This is a very economical accessory you will cherish for many years!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A better view I found the standard fitting on the camera allowed excess light in when shooting early morning and late afternoon, therefore getting in the way of a clear image through the viewfinder (when on location, I try not to use the TV mode to save battery power, beside it is impossible to see the screen in that light too) The eye-cup is fairly effective at mitigating this problem, and it is quite comfortable too! On the downside, if you wear glasses, your glasses can cause the cup to invert; but this is just a minor irritation.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice idea, flawed execution This item is needed on the D3; the standard cup is too close to the eyepiece. The DK-19 effectively blocks light, and would work perfectly ... if it would stay attached to the camera. I eagerly received and installed it, and it fell off almost immediately. I read the instructions, in case I had attached it incorrectly, determined it was installed properly, and re-attached it. It fell off again the next day. Worse, it was lost on its first trip into the field. In summary, a good design that needs a better, more permanent mounting method.
