#4. "RE: D800 Eyepiece removal" In response to In response to 3 Thu 21-Feb-13 05:54 AM by neilvanderwolf
I just bought my D800 last night. After a day of shooting and the pressing buttons, changing settings and all that fun stuff I tried to remove the viewfinder piece.
After trying numerous times (with the shutter closed) I gave up and asked my wife if she could do it (just two minutes ago). Instantly she handed the camera back to me and said "there you go", she got it off! I figured out what I was doing wrong and I suspect most other people are doing wrong...pressing too hard.
Very little pressure is needed to remove it, just don't push in while turning counter-clockwise.
