Nikon 2965 overview

  • 1Description

Optional Nikon eyepiece diopters allow you to optimize your SLR viewfinder's sharpness in conjunction with your individual eyesight. Nikon SLR cameras (without built-in adjustable eyepiece correction) have a base diopter value of minus one. Minus one is considered the optimum starting point for the majority of SLR users with normal vision. The combination of the camera's viewfinder components and a clear (standard) eyepiece form a virtual image of a subject on the camera's focusing screen that is the approximate equivalent of a viewing distance of one meter.

Each Nikon eyepiece diopter incorporates a numerical value, represented by a minus value (nearsighted) or a plus value (farsighted) number, enabling you to select the appropriate diopter for your vision and your camera model.

The eyepiece's diopter value is, when combined with the viewfinders minus one value, the end-result value. No combination of the camera's base value of minus one and a given accessory diopter's value is required to arrive at the final desired value. In other words, if you require a diopter of plus 3, simply add a plus 3 diopter to your camera.

Nikon 2965 reviews

-2 Diopter for N8008/S/N90/S/F100 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be sure you get the right one. If you want to use your camera without having to wear your glasses, you need an eyepiece diopter. Finding the right one can be a challenge. The normal Nikon eyepiece has a -1 diopter (what you see in the finder appears to be one meter away, so a bit of close-up adjustment works for most people.) Therefore, there is no -1 diopter available. If your normal up-close correction, like mine, is -1 (which means I'm slightly nearsighted) you actually need a -2 diopter. You can generalize this rule -- buy one less than your reading prescription. Search Nikon's web site for a chart that explains it all. Note that some cameras come with a built-in adjustable diopter, so you won't need one for those unless your correction is more than +/-5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overjoyed First of all, if a -2 diopter is not right for you, don't think about buying the -2. It is undoutably right for me because it makes my viewfinder look like it did when I was 20 years old. I can tell without a doubt now if autofocus has flaked out. I can even use manual focus without wondering if I've nailed it. I verified the fit on the N8008S and N90S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great help I’m nearsighted these help with focusing and seeing the viewfinder info. I have them on all of my 35mm Nikon cameras.
