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.

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).

Works with Df

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

Purchased for Nikon Df. I like the soft rubber for fit to the eye. It is an easy conversion fit to the original eyecup mount, just follow the pictures in the instruction sheet - the words do not work.

Lost my eyepiece with the rubber flange while in Ireland. Ordered from B&H while still on vacation. Arrived and ready to replace by the time I got home.

Like them, got one for each camera body

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

I got two of these, one for my Nikon D800 and one for my D500.
I wear glasses but these work fine for me, I can see my full viewfinder (but your mileage may vary). You can keep it extended or press it down as called by the situation. Camera looks nicer too! :-)

Upon first use, while walking in a big city with one of these on a D500 body on an OP-TECH PRO LOOP strap, friction against my body must have unscrewed the rubber eyecup and it fell off. I was lucky enough to notice this and traced my steps back for a few blocks to find it on the sidewalk, before anyone stepped on it or picked it up. Since then I make sure they're properly screwed and check on that every now and then, so this has never happened again, but be aware so it doesn't happen to you. :-)

As always with B&H, be it a huge expensive item or a small nifty accessory like this, service and delivery was great.

No-brainer upgrade for D810

By Evan

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

I've been using this for about a week now and it's a vast improvement over the standard rubber ring. Folds back out of the way just fine and pops out to flag away any light that sneaks between your eye and the viewfinder. I didn't expect such a difference but it really lets you become immersed in the composition.

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

I use a third party eyecup on my D7100 and have had mixed results due to it popping off if I bump it while walking around. I just bought a D500 and was very happy to see the DK-19 offered by Nikon. Installation takes just a few minutes, and the eyecup doesn't move once everything is snugged up.

By Wendell

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

I'd lost the eyepiece/eye cup on my D800 while out shooting a couple of weeks ago, so this was a replacement. It had been long enough since I bought the last one (and I'm 64 and the memory is a bit wanky anyway), that I'd forgotten that the eyepiece itself is a separate item. So, after getting the eye cup I had to turn around and order a replacement eyepiece as well. Well worth it, though. Makes seeing the viewfinder image much easier.

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

A bit of a challenge to mate-up with eye piece but once attached, smooth sailing. Eyecup works as advertised but interferes slightly with monitor screen.

This eyecup is an improvement over the stock one supplied with the D810. It is compatible with magnifying eyepiece. It can be folded closer to camera body to save space.
