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).

Simple, but worthwhile.

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.

not worth it

By gerryf

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

The idea, especially for eyeglass wearers is good, however, the unit will not stay on.
Once attached just brushing against your body is enough to dislodge the eyecup.

I always use an eyecup on the viewfinder for comfort and light seal. Should come standard in my opinion.

Needs an existing EyePiece??

By Robin

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup:

Instructions call fro removing existing eye piece and attaching eye cup to it. On my D700 there is no existing eye piece that can be removed (there are permanent threads for receiving one). So product could not be used on my D700.
