The DK-19 rubber eyecup attaches to the viewfinder eyepiece minimizing extraneous light and vision fatigue, while keeping the camera s eyepiece lock usable. The DK-19 is compatible with the D1X, D1H, D2X, D2H, D2Hs, F4, F5, F6 and other cameras with corresponding eyepiece.
This eyecup is awesome!
This cheap part makes all the difference when shooting in bright sunlight. It keeps light from leaking into the finder when your eye is pressed up to it. When installing, don't watch the YouTube videos explaining how to do it in every language but English. Most of them are wrong. Close the finder shutter (you can't remove the OE eyepiece until you do); unscrew the OE eyepiece; REMOVE the rubber eyepiece ring, then, install the DK-19 where the OE rubber eyepiece ring was; slip the retaining ring over the DK-19 shoulder (not under, or behind); reinstall the eyepiece with DK-19. If you're installing the DK-17M too, remove the rubber eyepiece ring that is on it and install the DK-19 where the OE rubber eyepiece ring was; slip the retaining ring over the rubber eyepiece; slip the plastic spacer ring on the DK-17M before installation, then screw the assembly on the camera. Open the finder shutter and you're finished.
Super easy to install, great fit for my Nikon D810, authentic Nikon eyepiece means great quality. I read other reviews where they complained about these rubber eyecups tearing when placed into their camera bags or collapsed, thus making them useless for block side light into the viewfinder. This is my 2nd eyepiece. I have had one on my Nikon F5 for years without a single issue. Yes, the eyecup collapses if you put too much pressure against it, but I am careful when putting my eye to the viewfinder and it works perfectly, couldn't be happier...so I ordered a 2nd one for my Nikon D810 as well. I have not experienced any problems with the eyepiece tearing or snagging on something while in my bag, but, then, I am careful about placing my cameras into my travel bag and I use dividers to give them room. I have also not had any problems with the eyecups tearing whilst hanging from my camera strap around my neck, even with my cameras swinging about somewhat around my legs and waist. Oh, and the fit of the eyecups to my F5 and D810 eyepieces is perfect, as would be expected from a true Nikon product. Would recommend this eyecup to others, but be sure it is an authentic Nikon and not a cheap knockoff. I have bought knockoffs that looked like the real thing and those tore on the rubber portion, and the plastic screw base (or slide base, depending on model) broke.
Works fine and installs easy. I suppose getting a grip on the original eyepieces, if they are on too tight, could make installation a little more difficult. Eyeglasses and sunglasses will get in the way.
Not easy to install on the D850, which may be the fault of the camera and not the eyecup... there really isn't much room to fit it in there. That's not where my less than perfect rating comes from, however. Others may disagree with me on this, but I found the rubber eyecup was too soft and collapsed too easily when being used and put away. Whenever I went to look through it, it would collapse up against the camera and would, in essence, be of no use. After collapsing against the camera, it required some effort to restore it to it's working position because the rim would be flat up against the camera body. When in proper position, it worked right well. I'm now using another company's eyecup because it's considerably firmer and doesn't collapse. Your taste may be different from mine; if you prefer a very soft feel for your eyecup, you'll find this one quite comfortable to use.
I use glasses. With this eyecup, my eye is farther from the viewfinder than I would like. However, without glasses I can see this eyecup as a godsend. Read the instructions carefully when installing because the insides of your viewfinder are exposed to the elements (dust, moisture, etc.) while installing. Conclusion, if you use glasses it “might” work for you. If you don’t use glasses, go for it.
I use this eyecup with Wile's Wonderbox adapter to use on my Fujifilm X-T20 occasionally when shooting on bright sunny days. Like anything Nikon makes, it's totally decent. The round size doesn't cup your eye as well as the more ovular cups, but it's much smaller and on a little camera like the X-T20, this size makes sense.
product certainly good quality. post office lost the order. their records show it was def posted. the seller posted another one tom next day delivery. Thanks for that. shame the royal mail let him down.
This item arrived promptly. It was as described and comes with English instructions.
I fitted this to my new Nikon D500 and I find it very comfortable to use. I have one fitted to all my Nikon cameras and it helps to keep out the light from the viewfinder also.
All my Nikon cameras have these. I find them indispensable when shooting in bright sunshine. Very hardy and last years.
Takes some setting up...
It does what it says, but sincerely it was a waste of money for how I use my camera
Essential kit for the DK-17m
This eyecup replaces the original rubber cover and stops additional light entering the viewfinder when used to frame a photo. Be aware though that it doesn't come with the glass - I lost mine on my D700 after it fell off and assumed this eyepiece would come with it - not so!
Great item, original Nikon. Great fit and quality.
Bought it as someone said it could be stretched to fit over a Sony A7RII eyepiece. It can not. No great loss!
This is an excellent replacement Nikon Eyecup. It was received in a timely fashion.
Helps a great deal
The item is has expected, it does the job well and I am
