Nikon DK-6 reviews

DK-6 Rubber Eyecup for N8008, N90, N90s & F100 Cameras is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from DK-6 rubber Eyecup Bought two. One for my N90s and one for my F100. I wear eyeglasses and this addition helps me a lot with the viewfinder and controlling light from entering in. Some people complain that it is difficult to put the DK-6 on and some have even glued it to the eyepiece.!!! It may seem obvious but you need to unscrew the metal glass filter on the viewfinder and then place the glass filter inside the rubber cup and screw it back on. That's it. I wanted these in case they got discontinued. Hope replacements are kept available in the future for these cameras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really appreciate these replacement part I am so glad B&H carries this - I bought a Nikon N90 to delve into film a bit, and the previous owner had lost this cap. It completes the camera and is great on the eye.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually- Someone said something about the eye cup having to be removed every time you load film into your camera. That's simply not true. If you take a second to look at your eyecup piece you'll see and feel that 85% of the round edge is hard while 25% of it soft. You place the soft part of the circle down.. and when you open or close the film door it flexes so you can put film in or out of it.. Hope this helps, someone. -Chris

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon Rubber Eye Cup For N90 For a person that wears glasses, or doesn't, this is an ideal addition to your camera gear. It allows you see the entire view finder, as well as the subject without letting any extraneous light from entering the view finder. I wish I could get one for my Nikon D5100. It fits snugly on the mount and when not in use, folds flat against the camera body. When mounting the eye cup to the camera, be sure the hard part of the mounting ring is at the top so the film compartment can be opened without removing the eye cup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wise and worthy investment Until one has the experience of using a rubber eyecup, it is difficult to understand why some of us find it difficult not to use one. Whether it is the DK-6 or any other model or brand, the value and advantage of using such an accessory exceeds pure comfort, although comfort was my first consideration in the first eyecup I purchased. Without the eyecup, ones brow presses against the hard material that surrounds and supports the viewfinder eyepiece. This can be one of the stanchions for steadying the camera, but there are at least three drawbacks to this: discomfort, outside light reaching the eye, and outside light leaking through the viewfinder. With a rubber eyecup, the entire eye socket can fit within a soft, cushiony pad that blocks external light. With no outside light streaming into view, the eye finds focusing easier and the image in the viewfinder full and clear. The eye no longer strains as it squints to block external light. Eyeglass wearers may find the rubber cushion protects as well as supports the glass, thus allowing them to press closer to the viewfinder to see as much of the frame as possible inside the viewfinder. The only drawback I have encountered with this accessory is its profile. The eyecup is prominent (stands out) and can get in the path of a strong brush to the body. Under some circumstances, it is susceptible to falling (peeling) off or being knocked off. However, because it is flexible rubber, when I return the camera to its case, I simply fold over the cup (like a puppys ears). It rolls over with little profile. Though not necessarily a drawback, the base of the eyecup generally overlaps the camera back on film cameras just a bit. To allow the back to open, the bottom edge of the eyecup is cut and squared off like a flat ball sitting on hot cement. On my Nikon F100 (and my FM3A) the viewfinder eyepiece fits inside the eyecup opening and screws into the socket, sandwiching the eyecup in between. When one screws the eyepiece into the viewfinder, it is necessary to make sure the flat side of the eyecup base clears the upper edge of the hinged back. This takes a little adjusting, but is easy to do. This is a wise and worthy investment. After a short use, I doubt you will be very comfortable with a camera that does not have a rubber eyecup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice eye fit for EOS 5D I attach this to the EYEPIECE ADAPT f/N2-4-5-6000 SER/FM10 and get a nice eye fit for Canon EOS 5D, eliminating all stray light between eye and prism. I had to stick them together with glue. I could even fix it on the canon epbx15 (is it called so) eyepiece magnifier such as to move my nose away from the lcd screen (but I had to remove the lenses inside that magnifier). The cons is that the glue held for 1 year, I had to buy a new mix now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for glasses; does not block back Especially helpful in blocking extraneous light for those who wear glasses. Bottom of eyecup (if it is aligned properly) folds up and out of the way of the camera back for film loading and unloading. Can't use eyepiece cap DK-8 without removing eyecup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its ok The product works great it really helps keep light out and it makes it alot more comfortable when your out shooting all day. The only reason I am giving it only 3 stars is because it gets in the way and has to be taken off when you change film.
