"eyepiece removal"


AU
          

hi everyone.

ive recently bought a -2 diopter eyepiece for my d5200 but i cant find any instructions online or in the manual regarding the removal and replacement of the eyepiece.

under the rubber eyecap i can see some screws but im not sure if i need to remove these or not.

im still new to photography and dont want to risk damaging my camera if i start taking it apart.

any help would be appreciated, thanks.

If it's the Nikon part, the rubber eyecup slides up, and the diopter slides on.

I have tried to slide the eyecup onto the diopter part, and for me at least, it doesn't seem to fit.

The diopter already on the camera does not remove. The additional diopter adds a fixed amount of correction and you use the original to adjust it. It should look like the rubber cover and slide on. It slides over the the eyepiece then you replace the rubber shield over it and adjust using the diopter wheel. Simply put it like eye glasses for the view finder.

Nikon makes several versions and you need the right one to have it install. You don't have to unscrew anything. Check the Nikon web site for the exact part number.

I've bought such for my 3200 and found that you can't use the rubber eye piece, once you put the additional diopter on Yes the Diopter is a Nikon part. I just resigned to using the red dot that shows up when locked on target.
