Nikon DK-3 reviews

DK-3 Rubber Eyecup is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes getting used to, but does the job. I picked this up for my D7000 because Moose Peterson recommends using a rubber eyecup to dampen vibrations from your face (seriously). Although it takes some getting used to, I'm glad I bought it. If you are interested in this eyecup, you must also buy the EYEPIECE ADAPT f/N2-4-5-6000 SER/FM10 and the NIEPFM2 Finder Eyepiece for FM, FE & FA Series and put them all together for it to work. I prefer this eyecup to the DK-21M, which makes the corners blurry and obscures the info on the bottom of the viewfinder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with diopters, too This is a good eyecup, it really helps you focus on the subject without distracting light. It's easier to use if you don't wear eyeglasses, (this applies to all eyecups), because the separation between your glasses and eye will still allow stray light to enter anyway. If you kind of press your eye into it it definitely helps cut down a lot, though, so it's not a complete waste. This also is fully compatible with Nikon's diopters because the eyecup fits around it. The major downside, at least on the FE2 which I own, is that once attached you really can't easily pull your notes or film info from the memo holder at the back because the eyecup covers part of that. On the other hand, the eyecup is pretty easy to remove so it's not really a deal breaker. Just keep it in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great eyepiece for improved metering Used this in conjunction with DK-22 and finder eyepiece for FM FA FE to convert my D750 to fit this round eye cup. Great combo.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful but fragile The DK-3 Rubber Eyecup is very useful to block out parasite light reaching the viewfinder from behind. Once attached to your Nikon body, it reduces 99.99% the light passing through the viewfinder from behind (only light reaching your eye is through the lens). The biggest con for this product is the sensitive rubber from witch it's made of. I managed to break mine in 30 seconds after i put my hands on and i know how to handle photo equipments... so my hint is to be careful when attaching it to the body.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I don't think this really helps I wear glasses, this doesn't really help me. I thought it would help cut down stray light and make looking through the viewfinder easier and clearer, but it actually contributes little or nothing. The stray light problem still exists because light seeps in through the edge of my glasses (though the distance between the frames and my eye). There's no getting around that. I guess this becomes an accessory that looks nice on the camera, but ultimately does nothing for me. The build quality is very nice though, and if you don't wear glasses it makes things work a lot easier. Unfortunately, despite the built-in diopter on the D3, I have to keep my glasses on at all times for other tasks and it would be annoying to take them off to look through the viewfinder each time, so I'm pretty much stuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Nikon D7000 I really wanted an eyecup for my Nikon D7000. I read somewhere I could get 3 Nikon parts and put it together. Voila, it works! The other 2 parts that complete it are below: Finder Eyepiece for FM, FE & FA Series DK-22 Eyepiece Adapter for Select SLR
Date published: 2012-07-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from May vignette if you wear glasses I got this (along with the adapter and eyepiece) for my D70s. I wear glasses, and therefore can't press my eye as close to the viewfinder. That extra distance causes the round opening of the eyepiece/eyecup to vignette the viewfinder slightly. Not a huge deal, but since glasses prevent it from forming a closed seal around my eye, I don't think it minimizes stray light that much better than the stock rectangular eyecup either, which makes this not of much use to anyone who wears glasses. I'd give it five stars for anyone who doesn't wear glasses, however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition Great addition to help give a view with no light leaking in. But with glasses it is a pain. You need to order item number NIEPAN6006 to receive DK-22 Eyepiece Adapter for Select SLR to use the eyecup with a D300s
